President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama flew to the UK where they were welcomed to Buckingham Palace by the Queen, Prince William and Kate The Duchess of Cambridge earlier today (May 24th).  It was the first time Kate had undertaken a role as a member of the royal family since her wedding. 

The first couple kicked things off yesterday after arriving on Air Force One at Stansted Airport in Stansted, England and visiting Ireland.

During the two-day state visit, President Obama will meet with Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron, lay a wreath at Westminster Abbey and deliver a speech to both houses of parliament at Westminster Hall.

First Lady Michelle will visit students at Oxford University and the couple will attend a state banquet at Buckingham Palace.
