The star-studded banquet saw 171 guests arrive, including Tom Hanks, Kevin Spacey and Tim Burton, who dined on lamb, roast potatoes and vanilla Charlotte. Also at Her Majestys banquet in honour of the Obamas were David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Boris Johnson.

“let them eat cake” while rome burns
They should have served pork loin wrapped in bacon.
Every President in modern history has had a state dinner with the Queen. You guys are a laugh not knowing or understand that this is status quo. This is one of the aspects to being President. Some of you seriously need to read up on history.
I’m shocked, Moochelle actually dressed appropriately.
Anything for a free meal.
Everyone looks best when they play their respective parts correctly.
If everyone did so then no one is owed an apology or explanation and we can move on to the next crisis on the agenda.
Why on earth would the Queen give a hoot about Hollywood actors? Because the Queen is an actress. This entire charade is ridiculous.
Anything for free shrimp is more like it...
It may be status quo but is it status quo to be partying with the Queen when the heartland of you own country is getting the s...t kicked out of it. This man is the biggest POS ever in the history of this great nation.
Oh, that wedding that the Obamas weren't invited to.
For dinner, yes.
...she looked like a troll doll.
Bravo then and good for her.
There are so few good roles for actresses of a "certain age."
If Bush had done this, the entire evening’s TV would be filled at mocking the president for partying while America suffers, and laughing at what a total fool he is for now knowing what year it is. Hussein’s a POS and a moron AND America’s biggest enemy thanks to his handlers.
I hadn’t heard of troubles in Indonesia.
