In her speech at the banquet, The Queen spoke of the mutual aims and beliefs of both countries, saying, ‘Mr President, as we look to the future, I am confident that our common values and shared interests will continue to unite us.’ The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Duke of York and The Earl and Countess of Wessex also attended the banquet. 📸 Press Association
The banquet saw the royal family in full attendance; the Queen, Prince Charles, Price Williams, Kate Middleton and other members of the royal family except for Megan Markle who is currently on maternity leave after the birth of her son Archie on the 6th of May.

Two of Trump's children who are married came with their spouses; Ivanka was present with husband Jared Kushner and Eric with a pregnant wife, Lara.
They shared pictures of their outing on Instagram as they seemed to enjoy themselves.
Not everyone was happy about this new development as many took to social media to express their disapproval, which thereby turned to an organized protest. Some of their comments are:
“Why are US taxpayers paying for a Trump’s family vacation, all of his adult children, to meet the Queen?”
“Wait!!!..Trump brought his kids? Tis more like a Griswolds European vacation.”
170 guest were expected for the banquet, and this is no surprise that the offspring of Trump was beautifully decked to suit the occasion and mingled beautifully with other fellow guests.
Ivanka Trump was dressed up in a blue Caroline Herrera dress, pearl necklace and stud earrings while Don Jnr rocked a Tux from designer Zang Toi and took a selfie which the first son posted on his Instagram page.
Eric also favored a similar suit with his wife Lara adorned in designer Monique Lhuillier’s black and white floral strapless dress complimented with a pair of white gloves.
It was gathered that Ivanka who also doubles as her father's special adviser was the first of Trump’s entourage to arrive in England. She was spotted taking pictures of herself outside "Victoria and Albert Museum."
After the three-day celebrations at Buckingham Palace, the President, and wife, Melania Trump will travel to Ireland and then France to continue their trip.
It appears that Trump isn't only a President to a powerful country but also a family man to the core and one who finds time to incorporate his beautiful family into his busy schedule.
