There are perks that come with Donald Trump being your father, along with certain penalties.

There are even greater perks for his children when he’s elected president of the United States, like being able to attend a state dinner at Buckingham Palace, hosted by Queen Elizabeth.

The president’s four adult children, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and Tiffany Trump were all on hand Monday evening for the royal affair.

Not to be outdone, President Trump’s Instagram page also shared a photo of Trump and the queen raising their glasses in honor of one another.

“Tonight we celebrate an alliance that has helped to ensure the safety and prosperity of both our peoples for decades, and which I believe will endure for many years to come,” the caption stated, in part.

#Repost @theroyalfamily ・・・ ‘Tonight we celebrate an alliance that has helped to ensure the safety and prosperity of both our peoples for decades, and which I believe will endure for many years to come.’ This evening, a State Banquet was held in the Ballroom at Buckingham Palace in honour of the State Visit of the President and Mrs Trump. In her speech at the banquet, The Queen spoke of the mutual aims and beliefs of both countries, saying, ‘Mr President, as we look to the future, I am confident that our common values and shared interests will continue to unite us.’ The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Duke of York and The Earl and Countess of Wessex also attended the banquet. 📸 Press Association

With the pageantry of a royal state dinner taking precedence, the Washington Post chose to focus on who was not in attendance.

The list included Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, John Bercow, speaker of the House of Commons, and Vince Cable, leader of the Liberal Democrat Party.

It seems liberals in England take a cue from their counterparts in America, having little more than obstruction to offer.

Oh, and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, did not attend — she is on maternity leave, having just given birth.

The president found himself mired in a media-created controversy recently over his response to a British reporter who informed him Markle had been very critical of him in 2016. Speaking of the remarks the reporter mentioned, Trump said he “didn’t know that she was nasty.”

But all that aside, Monday evening appeared to be a charming evening indeed for the Trump siblings.

The mood turned more towards the business of politics on Tuesday as the Trump’s enjoyed the second day of their state visit in London. But, they continued to look on point:
