LONDON, ENGLAND - JULY 23: Table settings are laid out in the Palace Ballroom for a State Banquet at The Royal Welcome Summer opening exhibition at Buckingham Palace on July 23, 2015 in London, England. Last year the Royal Family welcomed around 62,000 guests to Buckingham Palace, at State Visits, receptions, Garden Parties, Investitures and private audiences. At the Summer Opening of the Palace, displays throughout the State Rooms have recreated the settings for some of these royal occasions, and give an insight into what goes into creating a royal welcome, from the laying of a table at a State Banquet, to the creation of an outfit worn by Her MajestyThe Queen to receive visitors.
