President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were welcomed to Kensington Palace today for dinner with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Harry.
The royals welcomed the Obamas at the entrance way of Kensington Palace on a rainy day in London.
“We have the same weather in Chicago,” the First Lady replied of her hometown.
As the doors swung open, and the group headed inside, they glimpsed young Prince George standing near the foyer. He appeared smartly attired for bedtime in a light-colored robe and pajama pants. Before the Obamas arrived, George had been playing in the drawing room with a stuffed animal dog, which was previously given to him by the Obamas and looks remarkably like Bo, their dog.
The rocking horse behind William was a gift the Obamas gave to Prince George when he was born.
Princess Charlotte was already asleep by the Time the Obamas arrived.
The Duchess of Cambridge donned a dress by LK Bennett for the affair. The First Lady shook hands with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge upon greeting but was greeted by Prince Harry with a kiss on both cheeks.
The first lady has been actively involved in Prince Harry’s Invictus Games to support wounded veterans. She met with the prince in Washington, D.C., last October and will attend the Invictus Games next month in Orlando.
The Obamas were then welcomed into the Cambridges’ Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace. The apartment was formerly the home of Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth’s sister. William and Harry have turned the Kensington Palace apartment of their mother, the late Princess Diana, into their offices.
