I found just one picture of it - The Queen held audiences at Buckingham Palace - March 09, 2016:

Video:
The Duke of Edinburgh, Colonel-in-Chief, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME), will visit MOD Lyneham to officially name the new home of the Corps of REME in his honour "The Prince Philip Barracks" on Friday. The naming of the newly refurbished barracks marks a significant milestone for the Corps, which recently bid farewell to sites in Arborfield and Bordon to move to new headquarters at MOD Lyneham.

It's very nice that this will occur just after the Queen's birthday. I'm sure she and Obama will enjoy meeting again. She has met every US President since Eisenhower, I believe.

Video: Lion licks its lips at thought of royal meal - Telegraph
Quote:
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh opened a new lion enclosure at London Zoo today, and at least one of the big cats appeared to think lunch had arrived early.

Behind the Queen's back, an Asiatic lioness licked her lips a few feet away from the royal guests as she looked at the VIP visitors.

And when the zoo's boss tried to make a speech, the Queen and the Duke were distracted by the sound of two young twin lions growling as they fought over a scrap of meat.

Her Majesty opened the Zoological Society of London’s Land of the Lions exhibit, which will home four endangered Asiatic lions.

The 89-year-old monarch and Philip viewed the big cats in their new home and met the ZSL exhibit delivery team, zoo keepers and members of a conservation group.

The Queen has given the royal seal of approval to a new enclosure for endangered lions. Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, she opened the Zoological Society of London (ZSL)'s Land Of The Lions exhibit, which will be home to four endangered Asiatic lions. Several murals of lions and monkeys decorated the old brick walls surrounding the enclosure, while a bright yellow cow with turquoise hooves and horns and floral decoration proudly guarded the entrance. Guests were served mango bucks fizz wit.

Wild animals are no respecter of persons, even Royal persons, as we know. However, I'm sure there would be meatier morsels around than the Queen and Prince Philip! It sounds like a lovely engagement, and it's great that these endangered lions have a new enclosure. I wonder whether the Queen indulged in a Bucks Fizz?

The Duke of Edinburgh has unveiled an Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust memorial marker at Smith's Lawn Airfield in Windsor Great Park. Smith's Lawn was used as a dispersed final assembly factory airfield for Vickers-Armstrongs after a major Luftwaffe attack upon its main base at Brooklands in 1940, and additionally served in World War Two as a relief landing ground for RAF Tiger Moth trainers and base for American military transport aircraft. .

I like how Philip gave everyone a few history lessons.

The Obamas have been received by our beloved Queen and her prince at Windsor.

Video:
US president Barack Obama has visited the Queen at Windsor Castle - the day after her 90th birthday. The outgoing American leader and the First Lady Michelle Obama touched down in the grounds of the monarch's Berkshire home in the Marine One presidential helicopter, landing on the golf course. The Obamas, who have a warm relationship with the Queen, are joining the sovereign and the Duke of Edinburgh for lunch in the castle's private dining room.

Exciting and nice to see The Queen and Prince Philip greet the President and First Lady. To see Philip drive them off is beyond nice.

I was watching the Obama's arrival to meet HM and Prince Philip and noticed that Michelle did not curtsy to the Queen. Should she have?

Curtsying/Bowing is always optional and is a sign of respect. She doesn't have to. I believe she has done before.
