Queen Elizabeth\'s glittery state banquet for Trumps begins with toasts and national anthems

Queen Elizabeth II's lavish state banquet for President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump got underway Monday evening at Buckingham Palace with the usual reciprocal toasts as a clutch of Trump and royal relations looked on from a magnificent table in the palace ballroom.

In addition to the queen, dressed in white and adorned with ruby and diamonds, the Trumps were joined at the white-tie-and-tiaras dinner by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and by Charles' son, Prince William and his wife, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.

Melania Trump wore an ivory silk crepe gown with silk tulle details by Dior Haute Couture, plus over-the-elbow white gloves. Her hair was pulled up and back in an elegant chignon.

Duchess Kate wore a white gown of cascading mini ruffles by Alexander McQueen, plus the Lover's Knot tiara, and earrings loaned by the queen.

Also at the dinner: Trump's four adult children, Donald Trump Jr.; Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner; Eric Trump and his wife, Lara; and Tiffany Trump.

Trump and the queen offered toasts to enduring friendship and values between the two nations, followed by their respective national anthems.

The queen was her usual sincere but restrained self in her toast speech; Trump was much more effusive, especially about her: He called her "that great, great woman."

"Mr President, as we look to the future, I am confident that our common values and shared interests will continue to unite us. Tonight we celebrate an alliance that has helped to ensure the safety and prosperity of both our peoples for decades, and which I believe will endure for many years to come," she concluded.
