The Queen has met 11 out of 12 serving US Presidents during her reign.
Outside the castle, peaceful protests have been planned against the visit of the former reality television star.
More than 100 people are expected to gather at the top of Peascod Street for a ‘Love trumps Trump’ demonstration.
Slough MP Tan Dhesi and actress Emma Kennedy will be speaking at the event,with buskers and musicians also planned.
Jo Smith, co-organiser of the protest, said: “We just felt that it was important that we let it be known that his values are not the values that most British people share. I generally think that we are an inclusive, tolerant country and we respect each other and that’s not what we’ve seen from President Trump.”
The mother-of-two, from Maidenhead, urged people to show their dissatisfaction in a funny and peaceful manner.
She added: “We’re telling people that they are very much welcome to help us as long as it’s peaceful and in line with our values.”
Mr Trump’s two-day trip to the UK has been described as a working visit rather than an official state visit.
A petition against the controversial President making a state visit to the country received more than 1.8million signatures last year.
