The Queen has been criticised for inviting the King of Bahrain to an important lunch party.

He is accused of using violence against protesters in his country, who are angry about how he's running things.

Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa is one of the guests at the gathering of kings and queens at Windsor Castle on Friday, to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

Human rights demonstrators are expected to protest outside Bahrain's embassy in London.

Swaziland's King Mswati III is another controversial guest at the event.

He is accused of living in luxury while his people go hungry.

The lunch will be followed by an evening banquet, hosted by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, but not all the monarchs will be at both events.
