Previously, press secretary Jen Psaki gave some insight into the President's upcoming trip.

“Who wouldn't want to meet the Queen?" Psaki said during a press conference. “We’re still finalizing what the details are of the trip … and we will have more to share as the final details are put together.”

The Queen has previously hosted former President Donald Trump and his family at Buckingham Palace in 2019 and also met with former President Barack Obama in 2016.

This will be the first major event for the Queen since her husband, Prince Philip, passed away on April 9. Despite the tragedy, the Queen has been working hard.

"Her family will step up and be by her side, but she will carry on," a former royal aide told PEOPLE. "She understands that she has a job to do, and [Philip] would have wanted her to crack on. She did do so when he retired from public life."
