The red carpet has been rolled out for Trump’s historic visit … but under the civilised veneer tensions run high.

Banquet at Buckingham Palace. CLICK TO EXPAND

It wasn’t really me who was invited. It was my husband, Michael Gove, who as Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, has actually earned his place at that table — with many others equally, if not more, worthy.

But of all the occasions at which I have been a ‘plus one’, this has been the most memorable.

Where to start? The elegant efficiency of the Royal Household, steering proceedings with a quiet but firm sense of purpose; the exquisite paintings and lavish gilding; the strangely humdrum bowls of crisps at the reception.

Then there was the band playing Nobody Does It Better and the theme music from Pirates Of The Caribbean during dinner (slightly surreal); the outstandingly beautiful floral displays; Tiffany Trump, shy and a bit lost in her Disney princess ballgown; the Duchess of Cambridge, exquisite in Alexander McQueen; The Duchess of Cornwall, warm-eyed and mischievous; the equerries, ever watchful; the ladies-in-waiting, resplendent in their tiaras.

And, of course, the Queen herself, a tiny, shining pearl of a woman glinting in the giant Trump oyster, small and luminous in her white gown, that movie-star smile and dewy skin that so bedazzles all who meet her. A unique presence in a room full of interplanetary egos, simultaneously understated yet at the same time utterly mesmerising.

The Royal Household is famous for its efficiency; but it’s not until you see it in action first hand that it really hits home just how brilliantly well-oiled a machine it is.

That is the secret of the Monarch’s success — and why the British Royal Family endures from generation to generation. The Queen has always instinctively understood this. Her ability to function as a symbol of something so potent coupled with her warm, down-to-earth persona is what makes her such a beloved and respected figure.

After ascending a grand double staircase (the Grand Staircase at Buckingham Palace pictured) and receiving our introduction cards and seating plans — a red dot for me, a blue one for my husband — we joined the 168 other guests for a bit of Windsor Great Park English fizz and small talk.

With the exception of yours truly, it was a whirlwind of Hons, Right Hons, Lords, Ladies, Sirs, Baronesses, the occasional Earl and at least one Vice-Admiral.

I was just comparing notes with Jeremy Hunt’s wife Lucia (looking very beautiful in a cream beaded dress) when a gentle touch on the elbow indicated the next stage of the proceedings was about to begin.

Gilded double doors opened, revealing the receiving line: the Queen, Donald Trump, Melania, Prince Charles and Camilla. (Pictured) We quickly formed an orderly queue and processed through, handing over our introduction cards so our names could be whispered into the royal ear, before shaking hands and exchanging pleasantries.

Meeting the Queen is a very odd experience. You want to be witty, clever, impressive; in fact (if you are me) you burble something inane and attempt a clumsy curtsey while she endures politely and with great fortitude. Luckily, one is ushered forward, past the bear-like Trump and inscrutable Melania towards Charles and Camilla, who are enthusiastically welcoming.

At this point, my husband was siphoned off to join the official procession, so I found my way to my seat alone. There I bumped into Trump’s youngest daughter, Tiffany (pictured), tall, blonde and resplendent in berry-coloured tulle. We chatted for a few minutes (she had recently been to the Cannes film festival).

She seemed rather shy and nervous — she is only 25 — and I was reminded that, for all the advantages, sometimes it’s not easy being the child of a famous, and often controversial, figure.

The table was groaning with flowers and fruit, great big blousy bouquets of pink roses and peonies, bowls of white peaches and artfully trimmed pineapples.

Each place setting was meticulously arranged with a bewildering selection of wine glasses. We looked around at each other, trying to fathom whether to stand, sit, take a sip of water or wait for instructions.

The latter it was, as the serving staff, equerries and Beefeaters coalesced into formation for the arrival of the royal procession. We turned to face the door as, two by two, the guests of honour arrived.

I was lucky. On my left was Dr Simon Case, private secretary to the Duke of Cambridge — and my master of etiquette for the night. They must have suspected I would get something wrong — and I did.

Instructed to toast the President, I reached enthusiastically for my glass, only to realise too late that no one else had. Instead, the band struck up a sprightly rendition of The Star Spangled Banner, leaving me clutching my sparkling wine awkwardly for the duration.

I thought I might have got away with it — but clearly not. After the pudding had been cleared and the finger bowls for the fruit placed in front of us, Dr Simon leant in. ‘Don’t whatever you do drink it,’ he whispered. He was joking. I think.

Dinner was strangely underwhelming. The food was very good — but, dare I say it, rather plain. Perhaps it had been tailored to meet the President’s famously simple tastes. The wine, by contrast, was exceptional and though the glasses were small, they were generously replenished.

I was just passing on the port when the pipers struck up. There is no better way to bring an evening to a swift and inarguable conclusion than a lusty rendition of The Bonawe Highlanders.

We rose as the Queen and entourage left, then proceeded next door for coffee and chocs.

And that, Dear Reader, would have been that — had it not been for another gentle tap on the elbow. Dr Simon, who had joined us for coffee, melted away, and we were ushered into a crowded side room.

It was like walking into Madame Tussauds, only to discover that all the waxworks were real. Off to the right was the Queen, next to Princes Andrew and Edward. On my left, Ivanka Trump was deep in conversation with the Duchess of Cambridge, and, somewhere in the middle, was Trump, sucking all who came near into his orbit.

LD:  Trump brought all his four children from his first two wives to England on this state visit: Donald Trump Jnr., Ivanka Trump (the apple of his eye), Eric Trump, and Tiffany Trump. They were not actually invited but Trump decided to bring them along anyway.  It’s not clear why Trump’s fifth child, Barron Trump, the 13-year-old son of his current wife Melania,  has been left behind in America. Here is a picture of the Trump Family Tree. (LD)

It was like any other drinks party — save for the fact that everyone in the room was extremely powerful or famous — or both. All except me.

As my husband was whisked off to meet The Donald and his delegation, I looked for someone to latch on to. My eyes alighted on Melania, flanked by the wife of the U.S. Ambassador. ‘Oh, what the hell,’ I thought, and approached.

Up close, the First Lady is even more impressively beautiful than in photographs — those cat’s eyes are mesmerising; but she is also much more human than she has been made to seem, and no fool.

Observing my husband’s Dress Gordon Tartan kilt, we speculated that perhaps next time, The Donald, being of Scottish heritage, should consider wearing a tartan kilt.

“Does he have a kilt?” I asked Melania? 

I complimented her on her dress, she on mine.

Soon afterwards, the Queen, who is, after all, 93, slipped away. The ladies-in-waiting and other members of the Royal Household followed, so I scooped up my husband and we made for the exit.

Whatever one’s feelings about Donald Trump, only a fool would turn down the opportunity of such an extraordinary adventure.

  1. Sarah Vine, “a curvy Morticia Addams”. Nice touch. (lol)
    Morticia and Gomez are two of my favorite people.
    (“Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc”)

    1. BEWARE!!! SOURPUSS COMMENTS AHEAD!!!

      They say more about the senders than the receivers.

      I am a Brit and although I think President Trump is an oddball, he is right to stand up to the Chinese government and its 30% import tariffs on American goods, and its totalitarian no-elections dictatorship.

      1. JK –

        There are thousands of reasons to criticize China! Here is one:

        China Running ‘Concentration Camps’ for Millions of Muslims, Pentagon Says

        The Defense Department charged Friday(May 3, 2019) that China is running “concentration camps” for possibly three million Muslims to maintain internal control while aggressively pursuing a military buildup to confront the U.S.

        Use of the politically explosive term “concentration camps” is appropriate given the scope of China’s massive detentions of mostly Muslim ethnic Uighurs and other groups in the country’s western Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, said Randall Schriver, assistant secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs.

        https://www.military.com/daily-news/2019/05/03/china-running-concentration-camps-millions-muslims-pentagon-says.html

  2. Ugh! The overbearing ostentatiousness of the elite is truly revolting. They feast and fiddle while Britain burns. All that is absent is the queen mother huffily exclaiming, “let them eat kabob!” The last time that happened, Jewish Jacobins rolled out the guillotines.

    1. Yep Arch,
      Jew Donaldos got the scoop. The “Queen 🦎” is the largest land-owner in the World. The longevity. The Queen. In her 90’s. Still vibrant. Plenty of “cool-aid”……..just like fake-Jew Soros. Infant blood DOES rejuvenate. Anyway…..Donaldo getting plastered again with TROJ. When will this kid ever learn?

  3. I encountered a picture of the “Queen” — who, according to one source, abdicated her throne three days after being “sworn in” — looking over to see if DJT’s wife had a bulge below her navel in a tight-fitting dress. Given the venomous treatment of Trump by Veterans Today editors, Queenie likely read and believed the crapola emanating from Gordon Duff et alia. According to sources, the Queen of this day had seen the bulge “Michael” presented to her before!

    The following I quote.

    “Queen Victoria succumbed to the lure of the profit to be made from impersonating living men in the 1860’s— and profit she did. She used the credit gained from enslaving theEnglish population by “enfranchising” them to enslave the Indian subcontinent. ….Encouraged by this, Queen Victoria and her Ministers and her Successors rapidly expanded this practice of impersonating living men as corporate franchises and “securitizing” their assets as chattel backing the Royal Credit throughout the Commonwealth and imposed — totally illegally and immorally — the same scheme in America.

    So here we have a phony Queen, who in proven fact abdicated her Throne within three days of taking her Coronation Vow, and a British Parliament without the guts to enforce the actual law they are always enshrining and prattling about. And who are they all appealing to for protection? Donald J. Trump. And who is Donald J. Trump? He is President of the United States.

    And what is the United States with a small “t” on the “the”? The Municipal United States Government— the independent international City State of Washington DC’s government, the franchise of the Holy Roman Empire, the one that is supposed to limit its activities to the ten miles square of the District of Columbia, just like the Vatican Government is supposed to limit its activities to the one square mile of Vatican City. LOL.

    And who are they blaming for this debacle? The Lord Mayor of London. Bar Members worldwide, did you hear that? You and the bankers are being fingered for all this rot. Claiming that you were just “following orders” per the Nuremburg Defense is not likely to work, so you had all better take counsel and correct your operations to bring them into accord with the actual Public Law.”

    Consider the above input for consideration. Pomp and circumstance trumps reason, almost every time. Ascerbic or defamatory comments welcome. In addition to “narcissism”, I understand the latest epithet to be “liar”.!

    1. AD –

      Don’t worry…. the ‘CHOSEN’ will help you with your numbers and addresses you want to keep secured!! 🙂

      According to RT on June 3, 2019:

      A memorandum from 2009 shows that – ISRAELIS – received full access to the NSA’s massive surveillance data troves, including the phone and internet records of American citizens and citizens of third-party countries. American official made sure to exempt themselves from this massive invasion of privacy.

      The Israeli SIGINT National Unit (ISNU), the NSA’s counterpart in Tel Aviv, convinced the Americans to circumvent the legal prohibition on providing surveillance data for targeted assassinations during Israel’s 2006 war with Lebanon, according to the newest revelation from the archives obtained by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

      Using the familiar rationale of “terrorism” to excuse cooperation they knew was illegal, the NSA and ISNU found a workaround using the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that provided the Israelis with all the intel they needed, according to an October 2006 article in the NSA’s internal publication.

      “To ISNU, this prohibition [on sharing data for targeted killings was contrary not only to supporting Israel in its fight against Hizballah but overall, to support the US Global War on Terrorism,” said an article in SIDToday.

  4. El magnifico and the royals. What a team! What an exhibit of Kabuki theatre, “western” style.
    The usual procedure of God like figures in opposite displaying a royal show to their subjects and the rest of the twisted minds that still prefer ceremonious dreams of long past tradition than reality.
    In the meantime the Queens Aussie subjects, monarchists or not are very much surprised by a visit of Chinese warships to Sydney harbour as our Aussie government did not announce or gave any hint that “the biggest threat to Australia – China” floats in for a visit just shortly after Aussie ships were targeted by the Chinese navy in the South China sea. https://www.news.com.au/technology/innovation/military/important-detail-we-missed-in-the-arrival-of-chinese-warships-to-sydney/news-story/a8474e5d7219ee21d42f3bf73388c7c1
    The supreme evangelical Aussie PM Morrison obviously never intended or bothered to inform the public/British commonwealth subjects of Australia, nor the local NSW state government is just another example that the biggest enemy of Australia sits in Canberra, disguised as “Australian Federal politicians’ defending anything but their own pockets but not the people or the nation itself. In down under it is an Aussie tradition to be subjected/enslaved since the arrival of the first fleet. Not much has changed in over 200 years.
    God shave the Queen and maybe PM Morrison – please.

  5. One of the cardinal principles that the founders wanted was that America was never to be a monarchy or have royalty, any political power via inheritance. Jefferson, Madison and Monroe among others of the founders had to fight for American to be a Republic. A few wanted Washington to remain as president in the semi status of a monarch. He refused and the two term pattern was set until the era of FDR, a scion of American royalty such as the latter day Kennedy clan and the Bushites.
    European royalty is, in the view of TJ, like vomit. And far to many Americans like a dog wants to return to the vomit. To many Americans love the idea of royalty. That is the main reason the American republic of the founders, has been converted to a Democracy with it’s pretend royalty of wealth. With the open borders dictated by the pretend American royalty, America will in the not to distance future and is well on it’s way to a totalitarian, Orwellian nightmare ruled by the mega billionaires, American’s royalty in waiting.
    Part of this conversion to democratic mob rule was the direct election of US Senators (1913) and now 14-15 States are calling for a Constitutional amendment to delete the Electoral College with the US President taking office by popular vote only, emasculating many of the less populated states allowing the dumb down American voters to be swayed by the media controlled by the very wealthy.

    1. TJ –

      A Republic can have any one of the numerous types or styles of governments which is chosen or forced upon it. Cuba, Iran, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, China and even North Korea are all Republics which come to mind. There are over 100 of them in the world today. Each have a different government style.

      The United States Republic of the founders has always been a Democracy, but was converted to a Military Government with the Lieber Code of 1863, while keeping some aspects of Democracy, and is controlled by the royalty of wealth.

      Lieber Code:
      Prepared by Francis Lieber, promulgated as General Orders No. 100 by President Lincoln, 24 April 1863.

      http://avalon.law.yale.edu/19th_century/lieber.asp

      (excerpts)
      Article 1.
      A place, district, or country occupied by an enemy stands, in consequence of the occupation, under the Martial Law of the invading or occupying army, whether any proclamation declaring Martial Law, or any public warning to the inhabitants, has been issued or not. Martial Law is the immediate and direct effect and consequence of occupation or conquest.

      The presence of a hostile army proclaims its Martial Law.

      Art. 2.
      Martial Law does not cease during the hostile occupation, except by special proclamation, ordered by the commander in chief; or by special mention in the treaty of peace concluding the war, when the occupation of a place or territory continues beyond the conclusion of peace as one of the conditions of the same.

      Art. 3.
      Martial Law in a hostile country consists in the suspension, by the occupying military authority, of the criminal and civil law, and of the domestic administration and government in the occupied place or territory, and in the substitution of military rule and force for the same, as well as in the dictation of general laws, as far as military necessity requires this suspension, substitution, or dictation.

      The commander of the forces may proclaim that the administration of all civil and penal law shall continue either wholly OR IN PART, as in times of peace, unless otherwise ordered by the military authority.

      …..

      Lincoln was murdered before he could complete the total restoration of the original Democracy. The Freedmen’s Bureau Bill and Civil Rights Bill of 1865 proved that (military flags still fly in courts & offices today)…. as Congress overrode Andrew Johnson’s veto.

  6. Trump’s “YUGE” farcical visit has me “BIGGLY” in stitches!!! 🙂

    From the video:

    “Even before he landed at Buckingham Palace, President Trump had caused a stir in the United Kingdom. Crowds gathered to protest the state visit by Trump, who recently renewed his feud with London’s mayor, insulted a member of the royal family and shattered diplomatic protocol by weighing in on British politics.”

    How dare he speak out on politics in UK!!

    The best came when he called the musselman Mayor of London a “stone cold loser.” 🙂

    He said he did not know the Duchess American actress “was nasty” 🙂 [‘towards him’ is always left out] as she was shown in the video. I say she is “nasty” for telling the world she is raising a gender(sic) neutral baby. That should actually be ‘sex’ neutral. But she is from the Hollywood script reading crowd, who do not know the difference between ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ anymore!!

    Trump is not looking all that healthy these days. Too many ‘Big Macs’ I guess. 🙂

    I can’t wait to see, today, if he can upstage Reagan’s famous speech he delivered at Normandy.

    TV ACTOR vs TV ACTOR!!!! 🙂

  7. The zionists rule over both Britain and the zio/US via the bank of england and the feral reserve, as nathan rothschild enfamously said, I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of england for the man who controls the money supply controls the british empire, and I am that man, and it is the same here in America!

  8. Trump is there to commemorate the WWII Battles.

    This 300+ page writing tells some of the reasons the tragedies were planned:
    “WAR! WAR! WAR!”
    by Cincinnatus
    https://tinyurl.com/y48atlzf

    (excerpts)
    Foreword
    -THE TRAGIC TRUTH-
    by Eustace Mullins

    Cincinnatus concluded his epic “War! War! War!” with his prophesy
    that if Roosevelt was re-elected in 1940, it would mean that we would
    become involved in World War II. Cincinnatus hoped that Wendell
    Willkie might be elected, and avoid that prospect. He was right about
    Roosevelt’s re-election, but too optimistic about Willkie, who
    represented the same sinister forces of international banking, the
    Brotherhood of Death, as did Roosevelt. It was not Roosevelt, but
    Willkie, who wrote “One World,” the blueprint for the new world
    totalitarian order. Ironically, Willkie died as a result of his association
    with the greatest mass murderer of history, Josef Stalin. To further
    Willkie’s worldwide campaign for the permanent enshrinement of
    terrorism, the U.S. government outfitted a converted Liberator B-24
    bomber for his wartime junket. He was accompanied on his tour by a
    named Communist, Joseph Barnes. During Willkie’s visit to Russia,
    Good Old Joe personally ordered that he be provided with a buxom
    guide. This well-trained agent introduced Willkie to high-altitude
    aerobatics during their flights in Russia, and Willkie irreparably strained his
    heart. He died after returning to the States.

    Like World War I, World War II had no discernible political or
    economic origins or goals. Once again, the white nations marched their
    young men onto the battlefields for profitable slaughter. The only new
    development was that in World War II, political commissars now
    accompanied the troops to the front lines, vigilant to punish any expression
    of doubt or lack of confidence in the rear echelon Marxists who directed
    the Soviet armies and their American allies. Wendell Willkie titled one
    chapter of his book, “Our Ally Russia.” This book was actually written
    by Joseph Barnes according to Soviet dictates. “One World” contains
    many idolatrous references to Stalin, like other pro-Communist
    writings of the period, referring to Stalin’s “simple, moving
    eloquence,” “a very able man,” “A simple man, with no affectations or
    poses.” On page 35, Willkie indulges in unconscious humor, when he
    notes that “Stalin likes a pretty heavy turnover in his immediate en-
    tourage in the Kremlin.” The “turnover,” of course, was due to
    Stalin’s propensity for murdering anyone close to him.

    In his chapter, “What We Are Fighting For,” Willkie approvingly
    quotes Stalin’s pronunciamento of November 28, 1942, on the 25th
    anniversary of the October Revolution:

    “Abolition of racial exclusiveness, equality of nations and the integrity
    of their territories, liberation of enslaved nations and restoration of
    their sovereign rights, the right of every nation to arrange its affairs as
    it wishes, economic aid to nations that have suffered and assistance to
    them in attaining their material welfare, restoration of democratic
    liberties, and destruction of the Hitlerite regime.”

  9. Excellent history lesson, Pat! Whatever the reason for the visit, though, I think well of Queen Elizabeth that she received our president with such aplomb. (After all, despite our differences, it is apparent the United States has been vital to the continuity of British royalty.). Having known him, personally, I believe Eustace would have said the same. He had fine manners – along with his intellect. (But YOU know that, too!)
    🙂

    1. Research what David Icke has to say about the queen and the royal family, they are shape shifters!

      1. Queen E-liz(ard)beth 🦎

        Talk to the seers. They’ll tell you what she looks like beneath that royal veneer 😎

    2. Gil
      The US has been vital to the continuation of British Royalty because the financial umbilical cord from the U.S. to the City of London was never SEVERED……period, end of story!

      1. You know I didn’t just realize that, wise ass. I simply didn’t get the gist of your post, seeing that it came across so incomplete

  10. I am a Trump fan. He is not a racist! This whole racist thing is like some kind of cult. Whatever happened to Martin Luther King’s insight that it is not the color of our skin but the content of our character. Isn’t this a more wholesome direction or goal for all of us to try to meet rather than endlessly calling people racist. I have my own perhaps cultic reason for why the “left” is obsessed with the racist thing. We are systematically poisoning babies and children from the African genetic pool with toxic vaccines. Doctors, vaccinologists KNOW that children from this gene pool are more susceptible to vaccine injury. Why? Why are we doing this? Isn’t it much easier to tear down monuments from the South or pointing a finger at some white leader and scream racist, than it is to deal with the horror show of the moment? That’s my opinion on it. Trump is not perfect, but what you see is what you get. He has exposed a lot of corruption in our country, U.S.A–child trafficing at the border, etc. etc. And I suppose the British are laying out the royal carpet because, let’s face it, he has exposed some British corruption as well.

    a lot to say – is right… i couldn’t keep up with it all…
    people like to say the younger generation is completely stupid… not this chick…
    PAT
    you were way ahead of me man…
    i had no idea about zion until the internet came out…
    david icke was the first author, who cracked my eyes open, mostly with his expose of freemasonry, which i had been looking at in plain sight all my life but had never realized…
    then came the understanding that masonry is jewish, whether all the brethren understand it or not, too close to call on the symbology and the motivational factors to be independent of each other…
    then the whole story of the rothschilds baking empire and real picture on the us fed bank and income tax…
    then came the next big flash – communism is jewish…
    gradually then the understanding that the jews totally control the us media and the whole government, from new york city… nyc is world communism headquarters…
    and not only that but they all have been working together under the table with the bolsheviks at least since the ww2 alliance, still are, gradually turning the usa into a copy of the control systems the jewish banksters placed in russia and china…
