State Banquet in the Royal Ballroom, Buckingham Palace for the President of China Xi Jinping and his wife, Madame Peng Liyuan, October 15, 2015. All were standing for the national anthems.

Live from Buckingham Palace, the musical programme spotlighted Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra, which included many Chinese folk songs aimed to please China’s First Lady Madame Peng Liyuan, who is a famed folk singer in China. Her music is downloadable from iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/peng-liyuan/id111820825) and for your listening pleasure on YouTube.
