President Donald Trump is to return to Buckingham Palace when the UK’s Queen hosts a reception for Nato leaders.

The Queen will welcome the world leaders and their partners for the reception next Tuesday which is part of events marking 70 years of the alliance.

But the Duke of York, who is facing a backlash following his BBC Newsnight interview about convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, has not been named by Buckingham Palace as attending.
