Chinese President Xi Jingping has begun his four-day state visit to Britain. Mr Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan, were officially welcomed this afternoon by the Queen and Prime Minister during a ceremony at Horse Guards Parade in London.

Her Majesty and Mr Xi travelled together in a procession along the Mall to Buckingham Palace, where a state banquet will be held.

The President also addressed a gathering of politicians at the Houses of Parliament.

“Although my visit has just started, I am already deeply impressed by the vitality of China-UK relations and the profound friendship between our peoples.”

The state visit will continue with a meeting between President Xi and Prime Minister David Cameron at 10 Downing Street.

Difficult words: the Mall (a road in the City of Westminster, London), banquet (a formal dinner for many people), gathering (meeting), vitality (energy), profound (very great).
