So the Obamas didn’t get invited to the wedding — but they did get a private audience with the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
Prince William and Kate are back from the honeymoon, and already working hard, greeting the President and First Lady at Buckingham Palace in their first official duties as a royal couple.
Kate looked tanned and rested after her (and William’s) Seychelles honeymoon, and she entertained Michelle during a ten-minute visit while her husband and the President of the United States gabbed about whatever it is two very important people gab about while standing in a royal palace. (“I mean, the water in the ocean is so blue — it’s green!”)
One observation: Kate looks like she could use some bangers and mash, as she looks skinnier even than normal.
The President also was greeted by Will’s grandma and grandpa — Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip — and spent time with other royals and assorted royal peoples.
Obama’s visit is, curiously enough, only the third state visit by an American president in the last 100 years.
