President Donald Trump will meet with Queen Elizabeth II when he visits the United Kingdom on July 13.

First Lady Melania Trump will accompany him on the working visit, according to Express. Trump’s trip will not be an official state visit, said U.S. Ambassador to the U.K. Woody Johnson when he announced the meeting on Thursday.

The queen may receive Trump at Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in May, since Windsor Castle’s website stated it will be closed on July 13. (RELATED: Meghan Markle Opens Up About Married Life With Prince Harry)

Typically, the queen only hosts second-term presidents, but that norm has been broken recently with leaders like Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump will also meet with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to discuss “shared interests,” May said, according to The Washington Post. May met with Trump in the U.S. in January and invited him for a state visit that was downgraded to a working visit after U.K. lawmakers’ outcry.
