Trump UK Visit: Who Did the Trump Family Sit Next to at the Royal Banquet?

U.S. President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and his adult children were treated on Tuesday night to a royal banquet hosted by Queen Elizabeth II during the American leader's state visit to the U.K.

In footage from the event at Buckingham Palace, President Trump is seen seated next to Queen Elizabeth II to his left, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to his right. Melania Trump is seated to the left of Prince Charles, who is also seated by his mother.

According to a White House pool report from the event, there were 171 participants, including the Queen. The event took place as protesters across the UK prepared for what will likely be mass demonstrations on Tuesday against Trump's controversial state visit.

Ivanka Trump, the president's eldest daughter and a senior White House adviser, sat next to Liam Fox, the UK secretary of state for international trade, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

Jared Kushner, Ivanka's husband and also a senior White House adviser, sat next to the Queen's only daughter Princess Anne, and Mark Carney, who is governor of the Bank of England.

Tiffany Trump, the youngest daughter of the president, sat between HSBC chairman Mark Tucker and Edward Young, the queen's private secretary.

Eric Trump, the president's middle of three sons who still runs the family's real estate business, was seated between McKinsey & Company's managing partner Dame Vivian Hunt and Janet Tucker, the HSBC chairman's wife.

Lara Trump, Eric's wife and a Trump 2020 campaign adviser, was seated between Lord Hague of Richmond, the former UK foreign secretary, and Royal Dutch Shell chief executive Ben van Beurden.

Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son who with his brother Eric runs The Trump Organization, sat with Lady Bamford, a British entrepreneur who founded Daylesford Organic Farmshops and whose husband is Lord Bamford, the billionaire chairman of JCB.

But it wasn't only the Trump family who sat next to royalty. Kellyanne Conway, the president's counselor, sat with the Queen's youngest son Prince Edward, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin sat with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney was next to Prince Andrew, the Queen's middle son.

Guests at the banquet dined on steamed fillet of halibut, saddle of lamb from the Queen's estate in Windsor, strawberry sable with lemon verbena cream for dessert, fresh fruit, and finally coffee and petit fours.

They washed the food down with fine wine, including Windsor Great Park 2014; Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot" 2014; Domaine Duc de Magenta, Monopole Clos de la Chapelle, Louis Jadot; Château Lafite Rothschild 1990, 1er Cru Classe, Pauillac; and Hambledon Classic Cuvee Rose NV.

"On behalf of all Americans, I offer a toast to the eternal friendship of our people, the vitality of our nations, and to the long, cherished, and truly remarkable reign of Her Majesty the Queen," Trump said at the end of his speech, in which he talked of the U.S.-U.K. alliance during WWII.
