announced her resignationPresident Donald Trump’s first official state visit to the U.K. will be dominated by a series of official engagements with the British royal family and Prime Minister Theresa May.

Traveling with the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump, and all four of his adult children, the U.S. president will also attend ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of the World War II allies’ D-Day invasion in Portsmouth and Normandy.

Just like his previous trip to the U.K. last year, Trump has again tested the resolve of May by telling a newspaper that Conservative lawmaker Boris Johnson would be an “excellent” prime minister.

May, who announced her resignation last month after repeatedly failing to win support for a deal under which Britain would leave the European Union, is set to leave office on June 7.

The Trump family will begin their state visit with a ceremonial welcome in the Buckingham Palace garden. There, they will meet with Queen Elizabeth II, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall as they inspect the Guard of Honour.

Royal gun salutes will be fired in Green Park and at the Tower of London on the River Thames shortly afterward.

The U.S. president and his wife will attend a private lunch at the Palace with the queen, before being invited to take a tour of a special exhibition in the picture gallery.
