The Queen during today's state visit. She looks great as usual.

And here she is with the so-called president of China. It's her duty to receive him, but he doesn't deserve to meet her/stand next to her.

Great news that they are attending the state banquet. As I said in an previous post ''Its was very likely'', but I wasn't completely sure.

I'm sure this is 100% accurate but these tweets have disappeared from Twitter.

The court circular is published in arrears - always! Naughty PA

PA jumped the gun but it does have access to the CC in advance of publication. The tweets are accurate.

The President of China meets people, whose subjects committed atrocities in China with a tacit approval from royals and shamelessly looted the Yuan Ming Yuan (see Lord Elgin). High moral ground is not applicable to the British royals.

Great ! The "non-believers" on this forum now have official confirmation that they were wrong about Kate not attending the state banquet.

As expected, Mrs Peng Liyuan looks smart. She has a great posture.
Mrs Theresa May is the best dressed among the British ladies. I like Camilla's style of the hat, but the colour is not flattering.

^^Queen Victoria had nothing whatsoever to do with the burning and looting of the Summer Palace, Al_bina. That was Lord Elgin's responsibility and that of French and British troops. (And what of Thomas Bowlby and his party's mangled and tortured bodies?) The British Royal family have plenty to be proud of, and Charles is right to be worried about China's human rights record.

The passionate speech and excuses are noted. You are fully entitled to your opinion. As stated previously, my opinion happens to be diametrically opposite.
