Kate dazzles in Lovers Knot tiara as Duchess arrives with William for Trump state banquet

The Duchess of Cambridge and the Marchioness of Cholmondeley are said to have had a bitter falling out

The mother-of-three was snapped weraing a Lovers Knot tiara and her in an upstyle as she entered through the palace gates with the Duke of Cambridge. Around 170 guests are expected to crowed into the palace ballroom this evening, where the Queen and the American President will give speeches. The Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke of Sussex will also attend.

Kate chose an Alexander McQueen dress and paired it with earrings loaned to her from the Queen, which had originally belonged to the Queen Mother.

‘It’s extraordinary that The Queen, the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall and Melania Trump all wore white,’ reiterated Royal Commentator Richard Fitzwilliams, telling ELLE UK, ‘I strongly doubt there was some secret colour co-ordination between them of which we are unaware and think it was pure chance. Theresa May wasn’t wearing white at the banquet, in her case I’m afraid it would have symbolised the white flag of surrender.’

Decoding The Dress Code Of Last Nights State Banquet At Buckingham Palace

Kate, 37, also donned her Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order sash for the first time.

As well as First Lady Melania Trump, the Presidents adult children and their spouses will also attend the lavish dinner.

Traditional for State Banquets, the white-tie decorations dress code is required for the guests of the Queen. Also referred to (particularly for male guests) as ‘full evening dress’, ‘tails’ or ‘dress suit’, it indicates the most formal type of dress code, as it exceeds regular white-tie by including decorations (for example sashes that indicate honours given by the Queen).

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, whom Mr Trump last weekend called “nasty” will not be present as she is on maternity leave, having given birth to baby Archie less than a month ago. 

According to the BBC, guests were treated to English sparkling wines and Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 1990 – 1er cru classe Pauilla, to drink, and steamed fillets of halibut, saddle of new season Windsor lamb and strawberry sable to eat, as well as a speech by both the Queen and her honoured guest Donald Trump.

Prince Harry was pictured at the palace earlier when the Trumps enjoyed a welcoming ceremony, a lunch and a tour of an exhibition of historical artefacts. 

The colour white signifies many things, namely: goodness, innocence, perfection and purity. As Fitzwilliams mentions, however, it was also the colour of the suffragette movement, and has become linked to feminist ideals more generally, and anti-Trump sentiment more recently and specifically.

The menu for tonight includes steamed fillet of halibut, asparagus spears and saddle of Windsor lamb, served with seasonal potatoes and vegetables. 

She added: “He appears to be behaving in a rather immature way and letting his personal animosity take over from his natural good manners.”

The Queen, meanwhile, photographed beaming as she met the president, was praised for charing Mr Trump on the Buckingham Palace visit.

Mr Trump is today meeting Theresa May and will hold a joint press conference with the prime minister this afternoon.
