Obamas to dine with Queen Elizabeth II

US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama would dine with British Queen Elizabeth II during his upcoming travel to England, the White House has said.

“As part of the President’s upcoming travel to the UK, First Lady Michelle Obama will join President Obama for a private lunch hosted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh at Windsor Castle on April 22,” the White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest said.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will host the 54-year-old President and Michelle for a private dinner at Kensington Palace that evening, he said.

As previously announced, the President’s visit will also include a bilateral meeting and joint press conference with Prime Minister David Cameron at Number 10 Downing Street.

“The visit will allow the President to coordinate on today’s most pressing international challenges with one of our closest allies and to offer his gratitude to the British Government and people for their stalwart partnership with his Administration and the American people throughout his Presidency,” Earnest said.
