The President and First Lady Michelle Obama were at the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their lavish Kensington palace apartment for an informal dinner, which also included Prince Harry.
President Barack Obama has arrived in Windsor, England, for a royal lunch with Queen Elizabeth II.”Each time, the president has come away with an even deeper personal affection for her”, said Obama spokesman Josh Earnest. “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.
The palace later released photos of the two-year-old wearing a monogrammed dressing gown and shaking hands with President Obama before the five moved to the dining room.
The photos also showed a fluffy Portuguese water dog toy, another gift from the Obamas, that resembled Bo the White House dog. Doting dad William is right beside the pair, warmly encouraging the apple of his eye, as is the First Lady. The Obamas brought a gift in a box wrapped in gold paper and embossed with the presidential seal: a photo diary of the queen’s many visits with US presidents and first ladies. “I can’t tell you what we talked about but I hope I can be such an engaging lunch partner when I’m 90”, he said.

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. Prince Harry surprised a gathering of military families during a visit to the White House in 2013, and William was granted an Oval Office sit-down with the President in 2014 to discuss his efforts to combat wildlife trafficking. The president was capping the night at a dinner with Prime Minister David Cameron and U.S. Ambassador Matthew Barzun at the envoy’s government residence.
“The nations that make their presence felt on the world stage aren’t the nations that go it alone but the nations that team up to aggregate their power and multiply their influence”, Obama said alongside Cameron at a news conference Friday.
