WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. first lady Michelle Obama will join her husband, President Barack Obama, on parts of his trip to Britain later this week, the White House said on Monday.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest declined to give further details.

The president's trip comes as the British weigh whether or not to remain in the European Union in an upcoming referendum.
