When you visit the Queen of England the day after her 90th birthday, you don’t forget a gift. But what do you get the woman who already owns all the dolphins in the British waters and a handbag collection worth thousands?
Luckily, I’ll never be faced with this dilemma, but President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama pulled through. The “royals” of the USA gifted Queen Elizabeth II with a custom photo album filled with memories of the Queen’s visits with U.S. Presidents and First Ladies when they arrived for a lunch at Windsor Castle. The present was wrapped in gold paper complete with the presidential seal.
Queen Liz has met almost every U.S. President since President Harry S. Truman back in 1951, so you can bet this was a full album.
Today’s meeting between Queen Elizabeth and President Obama was their third. Tonight, the Obamas are expected to hang with Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry at Kensington Palace. Hopefully they brought a little something for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
