US President Donald Trump has accepted Queen Elizabeth's invitation to make a state visit to Britain in June, Buckingham Palace said on Tuesday.
Trump and his wife Melania will make the trip from June 3-5, the palace said, adding that further details would be announced in due course.
Trump will hold a meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May in Downing Street and the trip also coincides with events to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings during World War Two.
"The UK and United States have a deep and enduring partnership that is rooted in our common history and shared interests," May said in a statement.
"The State Visit is an opportunity to strengthen our already close relationship in areas such as trade, investment, security and defence, and to discuss how we can build on these ties in the years ahead."
Britain scrambled on Monday to stem damage to its relations with Washington by finding the leaker of diplomatic cables in which the UK ambassador called US President Donald Trump “inept.”
Trump told the Sunday Times in an interview that Britain should "walk away" from talks and refuse to pay a £39 billion ($49 billion) divorce bill if it doesn't get better terms from the EU.
The president called the mayor a "stone cold loser" before adding: "In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit."
