    Live from London as US President Donald Trump leaves the UK's capital and heads to the city of Portsmouth for the 75th anniversary commemoration of D-Day.

    Donald Trump will join Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Theresa May at Portsmouth Naval Base, which served as a key launch pad for the forces that would land in Normandy.

    D-Day, or the Normandy landings, was the largest seaborne invasion in history; it took place on 6 June 1944, during World War II and was carried out by the Western Allies. D-Day marked the beginning of the liberation of German-occupied France and the opening of a second front.
