The first lady embarks on a jaunt through the U.K. and Italy.

First lady Michelle Obama arrived in London on Monday with daughters Sasha and Malia and her mother, Marian Robinson. On her weeklong trip through the U.K. and Italy, she was set to promote initiatives dealing with girls' education, children's health, and military families. On Tuesday in the U.K., she met with Prince Harry and Prime Minister David Cameron. On Wednesday, the group arrived in Milan, Italy, where the first lady cooked with American students and talked healthy eating at the James Beard American Restaurant, a pop-up at Milan's food-themed Expo Milano. She also met with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. In the Venice region, the group visited U.S. and NATO troops and stopped at the Venice Biennale. Here's a look at the trip.
