The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are thought to be amongst the royals expected to welcome the President of the United States at a Buckingham Palace dinner in June. Donald Trump and wife Melania will pay a state visit to the UK on 3 June, and later that evening the Queen will hold a state banquet – confirmed to attend are Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, though it's thought that Kate and William will also be there. Having recently been made a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victoria Order, Kate will wear her new insignia, if in attendance.

On arrival in the UK for the two-day visit, the POTUS will receive a ceremonial welcome within the Buckingham Palace gardens rather than the traditional Horse Guards Parade – thought to be a decision made for security reasons.

It will be attended by Charles and Camilla on behalf of the Queen.
