.Charles will preside over his first state banquet as monarch, held in honour of the president, and will be joined by the Queen Consort, with William and Kate expected to be part of the Buckingham Palace event for the first time in their new roles.South Africa's High Commissioner, Jeremiah Nyamane Mamabolo, hailed the importance of the state visit after speaking to the King a few weeks ago when Charles visited an exhibition of South African fashion in London.Mr Mamabolo, who is expected to be among the state banquet guests, said: 'The important thing is that the King has focused for his first visit, to be with Africa, South Africa, and the Commonwealth.'During the welcoming ceremony on Horse Guards Parade, the president, accompanied by the King, will inspect the Guard of Honour, found by Number 7 Company Coldstream Guards.Afterwards, spectators in The Mall will be treated to the sight of a carriage procession carrying Mr Ramaphosa, the King and Queen Consort and William and Kate.Following a private lunch at Buckingham Palace, given by Charles, the King will accompany the president as he views South African artefacts from the Royal Collection in the Picture Gallery.The pomp of the major diplomatic event, however, will be clouded by events in South Africa, where Ramaphosa risks impeachment for allegedly covering up a crime.He faces an accusation that he failed to report a heist at his luxury cattle farmhouse in which robbers took $4million (£3.4m) in cash and instead organised for the robbers to be kidnapped and bribed into silence.The president has acknowledged a burglary but denies kidnapping and bribery, saying he reported the break-in to the police.A panel appointed by South Africa's parliament is set to determine whether to impeach him.
