The first couple returned to the White House on Tuesday after their “amazing and unforgettable” trip to the Land of the Rising Sun, where they were able to meet the emperor and attend a sumo wrestling match.

President Donald Trump waved at the press while holding his wife’s hand as they walked across the lawn of the White House. Trump wore a black suit with a gold tie while Melania dressed in a navy blue Calvin Klein dress worth $2500.

The first couple is set to leave for the United Kingdom on June 3 where they will meet the Queen, have a bilateral meeting with the prime minister, and attend a ceremony for the D-Day landings 75th-year commemoration. 

Their first day will include a warm ceremonial welcome at the Buckingham Palace by the Queen, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, followed by a private lunch and a viewing of the Picture Gallery.

Day two of the visit will have a meeting with the prime minister and business leaders followed by a dinner at the US ambassador's home. The last day of the stay will be the event in commemoration for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings at Southsea Common in Portsmouth.

The three-day state visit is an “opportunity to strengthen our already close relationship in areas such as trade, investment, security and defense, and to discuss how we can build on these ties in the years ahead,” said Prime Minister Theresa May.

Hopefully, their visit will be as memorable and productive as their Japan visit, where Trump was able to discuss the U.S. trade deficit with Japan and issues with North Korea and Iran, apart from watching a sumo wrestling show.

Trump also met Emperor Naruhito, making him the first world leader to meet Japan’s emperor since he ascended to the throne.
