British royalty has just extended a first-ever special invitation to President Trump and First Lady Melania.

According to the UK’s Daily Mail, Prince Charles of Wales and his wife Duchess Camilla of Cornwall have invited Trump and Melania to their house for tea. The unexpected meeting, the first for a U.S. president, will take place during the Trumps’ official visit to the UK.

From June 3 through June 5, the Trumps will also be the guests of 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth II. They will attend the queen’s official state banquet.

Charles, who did not meet with the Trumps last year during their British visit, will play a “full and prominent” role in the arrangements of their three-day trip. The Daily Mail noted that former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush were never extended a tea invitation to Charles’ and Camilla’s Clarence House.

Charles is next in line to the British throne. Richard Kay for the Daily Mail believes that “the Trump meeting is a defining moment in Charles’ preparation to be king.” He’s no fan of the U.S. president, but he’s expected to put that aside as he looks to a future relationship with Trump between the allied nations.

Trump was originally slated to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May as well, but she resigned from her post on Friday, according to BBC News. He indicated that he would still be meeting with her. Trump will also attend a ceremony for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Washington Examiner reported.

Back in the U.S., a new poll shows that the majority of American voters believe their lives under Trump's presidency has improved since the Obama administration, even if they're not crazy about Trump himself, Business Insider reported.
