Xi Jinping’s first day of engagements on his four-day visit to the UK aimed at cementing economic ties
The banquet at Buckingham Palace is reaching the end of its musical programme by now to the strains of ‘Nobody Does it Better’ (not this version).

The programme finishes with pipe music from 4th battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland and the Army School of Bagpipe Music.
