Ivanka Trump will soon arrive in the UK to accompany her father, President Donald Trump, on his state visit.
Her attendance was confirmed in a tweet by New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman, who said Donald’s “adult children” would be joining him on his tour, which begins this Monday, June 3.
Known colloquially as the “First Daughter”, Ivanka is also understood to be Donald’s favourite child.
Among several questionable comments Donald has made about his daughter, he once said in 2009: “I’d said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
