Ivanka enters the world stage: The first daughter accompanies her father to meeting with Theresa...


Ivanka Trump joined her father in the center stage of world politics as she sat alongside the president during a meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May in London today.

President Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Adviser John Bolton and Ivanka sat down for a roundtable at St James's Palace where the US entourage were greeted by Mrs May and members of her cabinet. 

During the second day of the State visit, Trump, his daughter Ivanka and other US officials had a breakfast meeting with British business and political leaders including Mrs May at St James' Palace - yards from Buckingham Palace where the Queen threw a glittering state banquet in his honor last night. 

In what is one of Ivanka's most high-profile meetings as part of the White House staff, she also joined the two leaders at a breakfast with Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.

Ivanka, whose official title is an advisor to the president and describes herself as 'advisor to POTUS on job creation' on her Instagram account, is the only one of President Trump's children to take up an official position in his administration.

She has previously worked on business issues as part of her White House portfolio, including the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board. 

Before joining her father's administration, Ivanka owned her own company, a clothing label, and worked as a fashion model. 

Today's meeting in London will be one of her most prestigious foreign trips as part of the official US delegation.

Her previous attempts to represent her country on the world stage have cause controversy. In July 2017 Ivanka briefly took her father's seat at the G20 summit, sitting alongside the Chinese, Russian and Turkish presidents, the German chancellor and the British prime minister.
