President Obama Visits Queen Elizabeth II

President Obama is in England for the G-20 Summit. He took time to pay a call on Queen Elizabeth II. She and Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh received the U.S. President and First-Lady at Buckingham Palace.

I would have preferred a State Dinner in his honor but I suppose President Obama is on a tight schedule this week.

Note Mrs. Obama's up swept hairdo and double strand of pearls. Mrs. Obama was elegantly appointed in simple separates enhanced by a very low heel (as the queen is rather short). Carla Bruni the statuesque first lady of France wore flats when she met the queen. Mrs. Obama pulled off a simple sophisticated look that was appropriate for tea with the queen.
