IVANKA Trump was pictured beaming inside Buckingham Palace today ahead of meeting the Queen with her father, Donald.
She was snapped grinning at one of the windows as she waited for the US President and First Lady to arrive for an official lunch.
The Sun Reports:
Ivanka, who is an adviser to the President on jobs and work development, will be joining her father on the three-day trip this week.
She tweeted this morning: “Today, Her Majesty The Queen will welcome @POTUS and @FLOTUS for a State Visit to the United Kingdom. I am looking forward to joining the US delegation for this commemorative visit.”
The US President’s eldest daughter, who is married to Jared Kushner, is expected to have meetings with Defence Secretary and minister for women, Penny Mordaunt while she’s here.
Mr Kushner is due to meet with Tory leadership hopeful Jeremy Hunt too.
Ivanka and her husband both watched from a Buckingham Palace balcony – usually adorned by Princes and Princesses – as the President received his Royal welcome.
Ivanka was the first of the family to arrive in London ahead of the state visit, and yesterday posted a snap of herself outside the Victoria and Albert Museum in a stunning yellow floral dress and blue heels.
The 37-year-old posed outside the Kensington Museum in the dress – designed by New York sister duo Al Ly and Wayne Lee – which is worth around $655.
Ivanka visited the historic museum which dates back to 1882.
On at the moment is a Mary Quant exhibit, which features a series of mini-skirts, hot pants, tights and make up from the designer.
There’s also a Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition on too.
Donald Trump has booked out a whole floor of the Corinthia Hotel in Westminster where he and the family are expected to stay on the trip.
He’ll be joined by all of his children, who will accompany him to meet the Queen later today.
After he lands at Stansted this morning he will join Royals at Buckingham Palace, before a visit to Westminster Abbey this afternoon.
Later he will be welcomed back for a state banquet with around 200 VIPs.

Donald Trump’s already making waves ahead of the visit with an interview in The Sun where he praised Boris Johnson and said he “may” meet with him or Boris.
While stopping short of offering his full endorsement, Trump told The Sun: “It’s something that I find very interesting.
“I actually have studied it very hard. I know the different players.
“But I think Boris would do a very good job. I think he would be excellent.”
Before boarding Air Force One, Trump praised Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage and suggested he may meet them both.
But when asked whether he would be meeting Khan, Trump couldn’t resist hitting out at his long-time critic.
“No, I don’t think much of him,” Trump replied. “I think he’s, he’s the twin of [Bill] de Blasio, except shorter.”
Like 5ft 6in Khan, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has a hate-hate relationship with the president.
Trump was pictured boarding Air Force One with his wife Melania, 49, before jetting off to London to meet the Queen.
The US president said he expected his three-day state visit to be “very important” and “very interesting”.
