They may not (yet) have been invited to the royal wedding in April, but the US president and first lady will make their first state visit to the UK in May after accepting an official invitation from the Queen.

Barack and Michelle Obama will spend three days as guests of the royal household arriving on Tuesday 24 May before leaving on Thursday 26 May and travelling on to this year's G8 summit in Deauville on the northern coast of France.
