Harry seems like a third wheel in these kind of situations. He needs to get himself married

Generous hospitality from both sides of the special relationship. W&H got White House meetings, strong support for Invitcus, George and Charlotte got baby presents from the Obamas.

I find the KP dinner interesting. 2nd in line to the throne hosting a Head of State. Now that is rare - it might even be a first.

Yes, it's very special that the Cambridge's and Harry will be hosting our President and First Lady at a dinner at Kensington. Also special for the second in line and third lady of the land to do this.

British Royal Family Current Events 8: April 2015-

The Obamas seem to genuinely appreciate the BRF. The President has told the story of Michelle and the girls going to BP and the Queen letting them ride around in a carriage. The also requested the meeting with the newlywed Cambridges during the state visit. Plus Michelle and now much older girls met Harry at KP last year.

I have to say, whatever one might think of the Obamas' politics, they have clearly developed a friendship with the royals, warm on both sides.

The 2nd and 3rd in line hosting a serving US President and his wife to dinner at their own residence, that's really rather astonishing. I don't think there's a chance in hell that would happen anywhere else.

Obamas may probably meet the 3rd and 4th in line too pending their bedtimes.

well, the 2nd in line in most other royal families are under 12 LOL
Its a very unique situation the BRF is in, and its wonderful.
Very nice of Harry, William and Kate to host the dinner.
With William's work with conservation, Kate's work in mental health and Harry's work with veterans Im sure they have lots to talk about

The Obamas will probably be meeting with Charles and Camilla at Windsor Castle.

I think this is more a farewell meeting as Obama's term is ending.

Too much should not be read into these meetings.

Do you have a source on this? I find it very hard to believe that the Princess Royal is setting up and taking down jumps for a major horse trials- which will have both a course designer and a grounds crew.

The Queen is head of state in the United Kingdom, which was the world's first industrialized and most powerful country in the world during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The UK remains a great power with significant economic, cultural, military, scientific and political influence internationally as wikipedia so nicely says it.

She is also head of state in 15 other countries, including major countries like Canada and Australia and head of the Commonwealth.

She is an international icon and has been known as the world's greatest diplomat.

The Queen is simply the Queen and all US Presidents, other Heads of state and Prime Ministers are big fan of hers and enjoy meeting her. They've also told the media about her kindness and her sense of humor.

Both the Reagans, the Bushes and the Clintons went on farewell visits to see her just before their term in office ended.

And they gladly meet her family too, who are members of the most famous royal family in the world.

It's all about PR. In 2011 the Obamas asked to meet the Cambridges and i presume they asked to dine with them this time : the British court is just too happy to oblige, the result will be a good and flattering media coverage, on both sides.
The Cambridges are fashionable, Charles and Camilla are not : it's just as simple as that.

President Obama isn't running for office anymore. The people who like and dislike him are pretty much set. Dining at KP isn't going sway people's opinions of him.
