Trump, Melania have afternoon tea with Prince Charles and wife Camilla

Trump, Melania have afternoon tea with Prince Charles and wife Camilla

It's interesting to note that the dress is by one of the Duchess of Sussex's favourite designers, Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy - certainly one way to strengthen sartorial ties with the royal family.

Cape Town - US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump hosted a dinner in London on Tuesday attended by the United Kingdom prime minister and the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

Donald and Charles kept it simple in black-and-white tuxedos with black bowties. Last year, during a working visit to Britain and for a dinner at Blenheim Palace, she wore a sweeping Grecian-goddess pale chiffon gown by J Mendel with panels that fell from each shoulder in the style of a cape. However, Meghan Markle, who recently gave birth to her baby son Archie, will reportedly skip the bash.

Donald Trump and his wife Melania visited Clarence House for tea yesterday and today, a snippet from the encounter is singlehandedly ruling the internet.

The agenda for Mr Trump's week-long journey is largely ceremonial - a state visit and an audience with Queen Elizabeth II in London, D-Day commemoration ceremonies on both sides of the English Channel and his first presidential visit to Ireland.

Nadal, Federer one match away from dream Roland Garros duel
Next up for Nadal will be Federer, the No. 3 seed who defeated Swiss compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka 7-6 (4), 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4. The odd sequence occurred during the fourth set of the 3-hour, 55-minute match, which was delayed by darkness Sunday.


In attendance was guest of honor Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, along with Ambassador Woody Johnson and his wife Suzanne Ircha. The former Labour Party Prime Minister Tony Blair was also there.

Charles, the heir to the British throne, and the Duchess of Cornwall met the Trumps as they arrived Monday.

The first lady was 'very involved with the gift selection, ' her spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said.

Trump has a known affinity for Churchill; in one of his first notable acts as President, he restored the bust of Winston Churchill, which had been moved during the Obama administration, to the Oval Office.
