His opinion is correct though. Queen Victoria was already a constitutional monarch who did not personally direct foreign policy or military operations. Maybe if you were talking about the era of Henry VIII or Elizabeth I, you would have a point.

Jeremy Corbyn wouldn't miss a chance to meet Comrade Xi. Maybe the Labour leader will come to dinner in his full Mao uniform.

Just kidding of course.

Lavish welcome for Chinese leader on UK visit - BBC News

As Nicholas Witchell reports in this video and as another expert said on BBC earlier today ''this is about Xi Jinping wanting to be received and seen with the Queen''. He and the others communists who runs China are brutal dictators and as Charles previously said ''appalling old waxworks''.

Prince Andrew looks very knowledgeable around the Chinese art exhibition at Buckingham Palace. Camilla, on the other hand, looks out of her league and Charles is unable to crack a smile.

Papyrus is a disappointment to me, but it looks like it will be her signature tiara for the time being.

Great choice, it's a lovely tiara. Wonder if she's wearing the RFO, hard to tell with this picture.

Looks like I was right predicting a red dress. Can't really tell though from the picture if its silk or not though. She does look gorgeous!

With wearing the papyrus tiara, it does look like its been returned to the Queen's vaults as I believe if it was still in the Linley's possession, Kate wouldn't have borrowed it twice. It suits her very nicely methinks.

As the future queen, Catherine should wear more significant jewels. But, again, she cannot be seen in public overshadowing Camilla (the future princess consort).

We couldn't really expect that Catherine would wear a third tiara on her third tiara event. Imo she looked great with that updo. And the tiara is beautiful and suits her well.

I am so curious to see if all the rumours about the RFO are true, and I think they are. But we have to wait for better pics to be sure.

I had the impression the dress was lace.

Let's wait for a full view. Maybe it's just me, but she doesn't look so good at this picture.

PS: The Telegraph has resumed the live stream.
