Why ultra ?

All banquets in that Ballroom is always same for all high level visitors for years.
Sure, Mr Xi deserve a well reception as president of one of the best economies in the world.
Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

Should President Xi tire from his duties as leader of the world’s next emergent superpower, at least he’ll be comfortable.
At Buckingham Palace, he and his wife will stay in the Belgian suite, previously occupied by Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge on their wedding night.

41 and 62 two numbers have special meaning in this eye–catching diplomatic event, who can give a reasonable explanation?
