A new book says Ivanka Trump bypassed security concerns at her father's inauguration so she could have her "princess moment".

US President Donald Trump's daughter told an organiser "it's happening" despite her step-mother, Melania Trump, fearing they wouldn't be safe as they paraded down Pennsylvania Ave.

That's according to Born Trump, a book that delves into the lives of Mr Trump's children, and how their father's influence has rubbed off on them.

In an extract published by Vanity Fair, author Emily Jane Fox writes that Ivanka demanded to sleep in the Lincoln bedroom for the weekend following the inauguration.

"'I told her it's an inauguration, not a coronation,' one friend recalled. 'The sentiment was that Americans wanted a royal family.'"

The book could offer a fascinating insight into not only the children, but Mr Trump's role as a father figure.

Ms Fox writes, according to a friend of Mr Trump, that he wanted five children for a reason.

"Because with five, then I will know that one will be guaranteed to turn out like me."

Born Trump will be released at the end of this month.
