In the most adorable part of Barack and Michelle Obama’s Friday rendezvous with the British royal family, Prince George greeted the President of the United States in a mini white robe at Kensington Palace.
The two-year-old son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton “was allowed to stay up late” to meet the Obamas, said Jason Knauf, the spokesperson for Will and Kate, according to a White House pool reporter. The report also described Prince George as “smartly attired for bedtime in a light-colored robe and pajama pants.” The youngster also showed off a rocking horse that was a gift from the Obamas.
No word on whether toddler-sized white robes have been selling out worldwide yet — a trait that he gets from his mother.
After Marine One landed on the Windsor Castle golf course Friday morning, the 94-year-old Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip drove the Obamas to a 90th birthday lunch for Queen Elizabeth, where he and the First Lady presented the longest-reigning British monarch with a photo album of her meetings with American leaders throughout the years. Then he went to London and held a press conference with David Cameron, where he urged Britons not to vote to leave the European Union in an upcoming referendum. Then the Obamas dined at Kensington Palace with Will and Kate, as well as Prince Harry.
