Donald Trump is to make a state visit to the UK in June.
The US President and his wife Melania will be in the UK between June 3rd and June 5th, Buckingham Palace confirmed today.
While President Trump visited the UK last year - during which he met Queen Elizabeth - this will be his first formal state visit to the country.
Queen Elizabeth has previously hosted former US presidents George W Bush and Barack Obama for full state visits.
Buckingham Palace has announced that full details of events in June will be announced 'in due course'.

Last year's US presidential 'working visit' to the UK was marked by large-scale protests in opposition to the visit, with tens of thousands of demonstrators taking to the streets of London.
The upcoming visit will take place on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, the operation which marked a major turning point in World War 2.
It's already been revealed that President Trump will be in France to commemorate the anniversary on June 6th.
The US president has previously stated that he plans to visit Ireland, but a planned trip last year was called off.
During the Taoiseach's St Patrick's Day visit to the White House, President Trump indicated that he plans to travel to Ireland this year.
