President Barack Obama & Michelle Obama Are Set To Visit Kensington Palace! Get Ready, Prince William & Kate Middleton!
This sounds like the best dinner date EVER.
In an official statement, it was revealed President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama will take a trip to Kensington Palace on April 22. The pair will be hosted for dinner by none other than Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Hmm, we wonder if the royals will infuse some Indian cuisine into the meal — they did just get back from an epic trip to the country, after all!
In the announcement, Kate and Will's reps' gushed:
"Their Royal Highnesses are very much looking forward to welcoming President and Mrs. Obama to Kensington Palace."
Should be a blast! Considering the prince and his bro Prince Harry visited POTUS a few times before, it makes sense they'd return the favor.
To make the situation even sweeter, the Obamas will also pay a visit to Elizabeth II and Prince Philip for lunch.
Can't wait for the pics! Travel safe, you two!

Obama Gets RIPPED ON For Doing The Tango In Wake Of Brussels Attacks — Find Out Why Critics Are Calling His Dance A 'Terrible Mistake'!
Barack Obama is getting heat once again!
Over the past week, the president made an historic trip to Cuba to restore U.S. relations, and mixed business with pleasure when he attended a few innings of a baseball game on Tuesday.
But many critics weren't happy with Obama's sports spectating and on-air interview with ESPN the same day over 30 people were killed in the Brussels terror attacks.
So, after a video surfaced on Wednesday night featuring POTUS dancing the tango with Michelle Obama at a state dinner in Argentina, commentators put him on blast for his vacation-y optics in the wake of such a tragedy.
Thursday morning's panel of MSNBC's Morning Joe agreed that while Obama should not have cancelled his Argentina trip after the Brussels attack, he probably shouldn't be smiling in a Dancing With The Stars-esque photo op the day after he was doing the wave at a baseball game.
Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haass said:
Who needs an interpreter when you have a bilingual daughter?!
Barack Obama is making history as the first in-office U.S. president to visit Cuba in 88 years — and he's making his trip a family affair!
Not only did Michelle Obama join the prez on his three-day trip on Sunday night, but their daughters Malia and Sasha tagged along as well!
And even though 17-year-old Malia was there on spring break, she was put to work as her dad's personal interpreter during a visit with locals!
On Monday, White House photographer Pete Souza shared a photo of POTUS charming locals with his daughter (above) on Instagram, writing:

This Is For My Girls features the vocal prowess of fierce females Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Janelle Monáe, Lea Michele, Jadagrace, and Chloe x Halle — AKA the singing sisters Beyoncé signed to her production company.

The jam was created to raise awareness for the 52-year-old's Let Girls Learn initiative, which aims to help young women across the globe receive an education.
And while we don't get to hear the First Lady's voice on the Diane Warren-penned track, we do get to hear the girl power anthem on the radio!
Chloe x Halle will also be performing the song at the event!
The track will be available on iTunes at midnight, and all proceeds will go towards the Peace Corps' Let Girls Learn Fund.
