Japan's Emperor Naruhito is scheduled to hold a state visit in the UK in the spring, the first visit by British authorities after Brexit, Buckingham Palace announced on Tuesday.
The emperor, who ascended the throne in May, and his wife, Queen Masako, are to be installed at Windsor Castle, west of London, Buckingham Palace said in a statement.
This is the first state visit to the United Kingdom after its exit from the European Union (EU), scheduled for January 31.
After Brexit, the kingdom is expected to conclude its own trade agreements with other countries.
The last guest was US President Donald Trump, welcomed by Queen Elizabeth II at the end of June.
This is to be the third state visit of Japanese emperors to the United Kingdom in 68 years of Elizabeth II's reign.
In 1971, the queen received Hirohito, the grandfather of the current emperor, and in 1998, Akihito, who holds the title of emperor emperor.
