The Obamas meet the Queen

Of course President Obama and First Lady Michelle's trip to England would not have been complete without an audience with Queen Elizabeth 11.

The First Couple met the Queen and her husband Prince Philip yesterday at Buckingham Palace, and the media is abuzz that Queen Elizabeth never looked so pleased.

Tongues were especially wagging when the Queen casually placed an arm around Mrs. Obama, and the latter returned the gesture.

Protocol dictates that persons aren't supposed to touch the Queen, but she didn't seem to mind. In fact, it was reported that the Queen was so taken by Mrs Obama she even said: "Now we've met, will you please keep in touch?"

The Obamas are just kicking down barriers wherever they go. I can just imagine Prime Minister of Trinidad Patrick Manning giving Mrs. Obama the sweet eye at the Summit in a few weeks....
