    Published on June 5, 2019

    US President Donald Trump joined Queen Elizabeth II at a World War II commemorative ceremony in UK’s port city of Portsmouth today.

    Hundreds of war veterans were feted at the grand ceremony to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, which marked the start of the Allied Forces campaign to liberate Nazi-occupied north-west Europe during World War II.

    British Prime Minister Theresa May is hosting 15 world leaders to honour the largest combined land, air and naval operation in history, with representatives from every country that fought alongside the UK in attendance.

    French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, as well as Prime Ministers from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Poland and Slovakia also attended the function.

    Following the commemorations in Portsmouth, Mr Trump will fly to Shannon for his first visit to the Republic of Ireland as US President.
