Donald Trump and the Queen toast one another at the State Banquet welcoming the US President as the two

 The 'special relationship' between Britain and the United States was reaffirmed
tonight with moving toasts in the ballroom of Buckingham Palace as the President hailed Queen Elizabeth as a 'great, great woman'.

 Amid the splendour and ceremony of a state banquet for 170 dignitaries and guests, Donald Trump thanked the Queen for her 'gracious hospitality' and 'nearly seven decades' of friendship with the United States.
He spoke of the Blitz and the bombing of Buckingham Palace, saying that 'in their dark hour the people of this nation showed the world what it means to be British.'

 He called the Queen a 'great, great woman' recalling her service on the Home Front during the war, and said 'the bond between our nations was forever sealed in that great crusade'.

He said the Queen embodied 'the spirit of dignity, duty, and patriotism that beats proudly in every British heart'.
