The President and Mrs. Obama have accepted the invitation of Her Majesty the Queen, and will travel to the United Kingdom for a state visit on May 24-26, 2011.
President and Mrs. Obama stayed  at Buckingham Palace.

Secretary of State Clinton will accompany President Obama to London on May 24 for the first part of his state visit to the United Kingdom.  This trip is a sign of the strength of the special relationship between our two countries, and of the United States’ enduring commitment to our allies and partners in Europe.  Secretary Clinton will also meet with Foreign Secretary Hague while in London.

The President and Mrs Obama first visited the UK in 2009 from 31 March to 3 April  where President Obama attended the G20 Summit.  This will be the second State Visit by a U.S. President.  A list of all previous Presidential visits is on the U.S. Embassy London website.

During the visit, Mrs. Obamal invited students from the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School (EGA), a secondary school for girls in North London, for a day-long university “immersion experience” at the University of Oxford.
