President Trump is to make his first U.K. state visit this summer, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

“The President of The United States of America, President Donald J. Trump, accompanied by Mrs Melania Trump, has accepted an invitation from Her Majesty The Queen to pay a State Visit to the UK,” the palace tweeted.

This will be the second time the president has traveled to the U.K. during his presidency. His first visit to the country back in July 2018 was downgraded to a “working visit” after protestors threatened to disrupt any official activities and lawmakers vowed to walk-out if Trump addressed parliament, according to Time magazine.

President Trump and the First Lady will spend time in the U.K. from June 3 – 5.
