I love state banquets; the clothes and jewels are outstanding.

Wonder who will attend?


If Kate does, I really hope she'll delve into the vaults again and wear a historic piece. Meghan will most likely still be on maternity leave.


Others- probably Anne, Sophie, maybe Princess Michael since she usually tends to turn up at state banquets. Anyone else?

I expect all available family members to attend given the importance of the visit ( especially post-Brexit).

I wish I could witness a one-on-one between Trump and Princess Anne.

Gosh.. in London too...

The climate change/lefty protest types will be out in force...they will see it an an honour to an [essentially] unworthy individual, whilst the rest of us will regard it as an honour duly paid to our greatest ally, who have chosen to elect him as their leader..
The 'extinction rebellion' protesters in Parliament Square may as well camp out there until President Trump arrives in June. It’s the same people anyway.

I suspect she will be wearing the usual QM Lovers Knot tiara. I hope she wears the Nizam of Hyderabad necklace with the tiara.

Although I believe the Eco-Warriors mean well, I can't help doubting that they'd make any meaningful changes that will impact their lifestyles.

Are they truly willing to give up flying? Or air-conditioning, or any one of a thousand other things that affect the environment?

Anyway, a state banquet is a state banquet, and I can't wait- they are such dazzling events.
(I really hope Kate will borrow a historic jewel that hasn't been seen in years.)

Now that Eugenie is married, perhaps she will attend?

If they don't become regular attendees, I think this is the most likely state visit for Beatrice and Eugenie to take part in. They lived in the US for a couple of years each and no one can forget the shout-out President Trump's gave Eugenie on her wedding day.

I am not sure they will be that relevant to the state banquet.

Oh, I am looking forward to this State Visit. Come the State Banquet I expect a full turnout of as many Royals as are able and a bling to the nth degree. We even have tiaras for both York Princesses. And yes Beatrice can wear one as a Princess is of the blood, just as the single Elizabeth, Margaret and Anne did.

I doubt the Duchess of Sussex will attend, given her [noted] public antipathy to the guest of honour..

{She has 'pregnancy leave', as a ready made reason for her absence}.

Regardless of maternity leave, if she was asked to attend she would. Personal feelings are left at the dole when it comes to state visits.

Meghan likely won't attend. Unlikely due to her personal feelings towards the person, rather she would've had the baby just about a month or so before this. As many have noted members of the royal family carries out their duty regardless of personal feelings towards the individual, I'm not sure why people would think the Duchess of Sussex isn't capable of sitting through an official function with someone she disagrees with.

On another note, I didn't know UK had a Her Royal Majesty. Whoever is in charge of protocol at the WH should be fired.

Not shocked. More like appalled by the lack of professionalism from the professionals.
