I am so delighted that the Obamas are having dinner with our young family. I don't think the evening is about diplomacy or succession or winning votes its about being with individuals who share humanitarian interests, who have common aims and who are good company. I so want to be a fly on the wall and would be delighted if we knew something of what was going on, but that aside am sure it will be a lovely evening.

Looks like a relaxed atmosphere at Kensington Palace this evening with the Obamas.(Love the pre-dinner photos)

reminds me of years back when Christian was caught in the entrance during a Swedish State visit to Denmark, although he did not take part in other photos of that visit

They are very cute. BTW didn't the Obamas send a rocking horse to the Cambridges when George was born or am I thinking of another gift?

aren't those pictures just precious? george looks adorable in his evening gown and pijamas :) i guess it was almost bedtime for him. shame we didn't get a glimpse of charlotte!
i love how they distributed these pictures which are kind of private, and that we get a glimpse of the meeting and start of the dinner and of the interiors of their house - which looks lovely.

Yep, the Obamas gave him that rocking horse.

I think the stuffed animal on the coffee table (are they called "coffee tables" in the UK?) was also a gift, as it is a replica of Bo, one of the Obama dogs.

I can't handle all this cuteness we've had over the past couple of days! First with the group photo of HM and the children, and now with these photos of George and the Obamas. I love the photo in particular of Catherine with George on the rocking horse, but the photo of George talking with Barack Obama is a sweet moment, too. The toy dog on the table was a lovely detail, too.

From looking at their interactions on this visit, I personally get the impression that the Obamas are fairly close in the terms of friendship with HM, Prince Philip and the Cambridges.

Bath time... then meet Obama: Prince George becomes star of Kensington Palace party after greeting the leader of the free world while wearing his monogrammed dressing gown and slippers


  • Dinner ends a busy schedule of high-profile events and meetings for President of the United States and First Lady
  • This 'informal' gathering is the first time that any of the young royals have entertained a head of state privately
  • After posing for pictures, the royal trio and their guests retired to William and Kate’s private 22-room apartment
  • Prince George met the U.S. President and played on a rocking horse the Obamas had previously given him as a gift
  • Earlier today he met with the Queen for lunch at Windsor Castle and later described her as 'a jewel to the world'
  • At a press conference at the Foreign Office he stood alongside Prime Minister David Cameron to warn against Brexit

George looks cute in his dressing gown and pjs, and love the rocking horse. However, this event just looks rather awkward and terribly, terribly staged to me, down to the appearance of George and the carefully placed presents the Obamas have sent him. Odd for a couple (the Cambridges) who, it's inferred, don't like putting their children on show for the cameras.

I have to agree. Even if Michelle wanted to see the kids, there was no need for the photos. Which were over staged considering the toys (the dog given to George when Charlotte was born). I guess we are to assume it was just conveniently left there by George as it is one of his favorite toys.

I'm afraid it all looks rather awkward, as it nearly always does on social occasions with people who don't know each other very well. To me it looks staged, down to the carefully placed toys the Obamas sent George (the rocking horse and stuffed dog.) Rather odd behaviour from a couple who dislike their children being placed before cameras or receiving undue public scrutiny. George looks a bit bewildered, to be honest.
