President Obama and his wife, Michelle, have expanded their royal acquaintances today after meeting Prince George, who was allowed to stay up past his bedtime for a photo opportunity that might just break the Internet.
The prince, who was wearing check pyjamas and a white dressing gown, also showed them the stuffed toy they sent him when his sister Princess Charlotte was born.
“We can’t believe Prince George wore our robe to meet President Obama!“.
The trip to Windsor nearly proved too much for one tough White House staffer who was so overwhelmed at meeting the queen she nearly fainted, Obama recounted.
US President Barack Obama paid tribute to pop legend Prince on Friday and revealed he had played “Purple Rain” and “Delirious” that morning before visiting Queen Elizabeth II. The meeting happened when the Obamas were invited to a small dinner at Kensington Palace with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
LONDON (AP) – President Barack Obama on Saturday urged the next generation of British leaders to give serious thought to how they solve problems, turning a light-hearted question about priorities for his successor into a treatise on his preference for diplomacy over military conflict. The Obamas brought as a gift a photo diary of the queen’s many visits with United States presidents and first ladies.
Another set of photos shows President Obama interacting with Prince George. “Michelle and I are pleased to congratulate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the joyous occasion of the birth of their first child”, Obama said in a statement at the time of George’s birth.
She said only three aircraft, including the President’s personal helicopter Marine One, could land on the grass at her favourite royal residence.
Obama broke up the royal holiday by stopping at 10 Downing Street for talks with Prime Minister David Cameron about the Islamic State group, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, the global economy, Russia’s stance toward Ukraine, politics and other issues. Obama and Corbyn also agreed that the United Kingdom should remain a member of the European Union.
