President Barack Obama coming to UK on state visit in May


Buckingham Palace has confirmed US President Barack Obama will come to the UK on a state visit in May.

It is the first state visit by a US president since that of President George W Bush and his wife, Laura, in 2003.

President Obama came to the UK for the G20 summit in 2009 but that was not a state visit.
