Queen Elizabeth II hosts President Trump and Melania Trump at glittery state banquet | USA TODAY

  • Published on Jun 3, 2019
  • President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrive to a white-tie-and-tiaras state banquet back at Buckingham Palace during their visit with the queen. The president's four adult children will also be in attendance.
    It's the end of the first day of a three-day state visit timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The Trumps arrived at Buckingham Palace Monday just after noon, local time, to meet Queen Elizabeth.
    The queen greeted President Trump after he ascended the palace stairs with Prince Charles at the West Terrace of Buckingham Palace. Melania walked behind with Duchess Camilla. The queen wore a big smile as she greeted the president with a handshake, wearing a mint suit and matching hat.

    I'm SO GLAD he didn't grab the Queen by the pussy.
    That would've been VERY awkward.

    Trump does drink alcohol, I was wondering if he did drink it to appease the Queen but looks like both had water.

      Wow I'm going out on a limb here and guess .The Grand Ball ,Meal Entertainment.etc.wasn't paid for by the American people Queen Elizabeth did put on this Event. So the American people Did not pay for it. Most past President's paid for their own clothing except for the Obama's. I'm sure the Trump's. Paid for their own clothing .Especially since Trump doesn't take a salary...

    Trump is a great example that with hard work and charisma you can get far. This man is smart when it comes to talking but dumb as hell that's why he hired smart people. Look how far he comes from 12 bankruptcy.

      Not so civilised after all considering the stupidity of Brexit and other idiotic decisions taken lately by many voters in the UK. Nothing but the ultimate result of a low level of education of the voters. The queen is just some traditional decoration and has nothing to do with a civilised society.

    The queen looks beautiful and classy as always. Trump being in London seems like no one likes him. Melania is never happy with Trump. I can't believe it wat he said about Megan saying she is nasty just imagine if she was invited and saw Trump and made a big drama out of it. Maybe that's why Megan and Prince Harry weren't not invited to the dinner.
