G20 SUMMIT - LONDON: Mr. and Mrs. Obama came to London to see the Queen and wowed everyone. The ever-fawning British media went into raptures over Michelle's fashion-sense; microphones caught every Presidential pause and of course there was the usual to-do over the royal faux-pas committed by Michelle Obama when she dared to touch the Queen.
Nothing was said about Mrs Obama's decision not to courtesy (unlike the Carla Bruni deep-sweep) but the suave young Presidential duo were nevertheless a big hit the with the shrinking Royal couple.
While a pink-frocked Queen with her frozen-in-time silver hairdo stood by looking very properly frumpy, a skittish Prince Philip hopped from foot to foot. The Royal consort was very much taken by Mrs.Obama's imposing height and the President's charm. In true Philippian fashion he was heard to remark: "I say, are you really black? How ever do you chaps get your teeth to sparkle so white. Haven't seen anything like it here in jolly old".
