LONDON Michelle Obama's meeting with Queen Elizabeth II began with a handshake and ended in a hug.
The first lady arrived Wednesday with President Barack Obama. After separate meetings on the eve of the G-20 summit, the couple attended an evening reception for world leaders hosted by the queen.
Mrs. Obama clearly made an impression with the 82-year-old monarch so much that the smiling queen strayed slightly from protocol and briefly wrapped her arm around the first lady in a rare public show of affection.

I’ve got a lot more important concerns than this non-issue. Frankly, if her husband conducted himself as well, we’d be better off.
It’s stunning that the media was able to force the queen to break protocol and put her arm around Michelle. I wonder how they did it.
Talk about spin! Michelle blows the protocol and it turns into "charming" the Queen away from protocol. Pathetic.
Personally, I believe there are two reasons why this happened.
1) The Queen was recognizing a fellow “family pants wearer”, since she is one.
2) The Queen was giving a signal that she approves what O is doing to this country.
Typical AP spin.
I'm certain he charmed them silly with his perpetual "it's all about me!" shtick. No respect or sense of honor or protocol in anything he or Shelly does. Just the embarrassing show of low brow narcissism, obama style.
The London media has a very different report on this story.
Omarosa put her arm around the queen first and the queen being the lady she is, simply responded.
Somehow I prefer the London papers to the AP
is anyone watching this idiot give a press conference to the world journalists.
he is so full of himself and think this is all one big joke.
Never have I seen a man who is more of a media whore
*Someone* needs to tell the Obamas what to expect and how to act when they meet VIPs.
Sheesh. This is getting so old. How can our own president and her husband ;-) be so clueless?
From what I saw of the video, I thought Mrs. Obama looked pushy, and I’m a touchy-feely person myself.
came to the same conclusion, she was aggressive, showed no class and seemed like a school girl getting out of school early
And I’d add that if anyone has paid any attention to the dysfunctional Windsor family, they’d know that the Obambis are right up their alley. They LOVE the libs. Only Prince Philip, that zero IQ guy, at least isn’t afraid to say what he thinks. Wish I was fly on wall after the dissing he took from M’chelle.
She said to the queen “You aint no queen biatch! The real queen is my huzband!”
“These people are never going to stop licking Obama ass, are they?”
Never, the sonsofb#tches.
All Obama had to say about that was, “I won”.
Glad you did write that. It’s true.
If Laura Bush had done this they press would have been in FULL ATTACK MODE...but of course, Laura Bush would hever have done this.
Give us a link to youtube. I gotta see it.
