Mrs Obama waves as she leaves the London pub last night
...The Audley pub in London's Mayfair has probably had its fair share of tourists from across the Atlantic.
But when First Lady Michelle Obama led her two daughters into the traditional pub for fish and chips last night even the normally unflappable staff were left gobsmacked.
Staff told...of their astonishment as Mrs Obama and her daughters Malia, 10, and eight-year-old Sasha traipsed into the bar....
Just a normal night down the pub: Mrs Obama can be seen through
the window of the armoured SUV to the right of the picture
Cinthia Pinto and Adriana Spanova at the table where they served dinner to Michelle
Obama and her family at the Audley Arms...
The Obama girls both enjoyed 'the best
fish and chips in W1'
Delighted passers-by try to grab a snap of the First Lady
Regular drinkers at The Audley pub..were surprised to be joined by Michelle Obama for drinks last night

Busy day: Michelle Obama raised eyebrows today with her layered look - including two
cardigans - as she left Westminster Abbey after being taken on a private tour

out of Westminster Abbey...

Trying to fit in with the prols?
Why didn’t she go visit Brixton?
I'm usually kinder than most with regard to Mrs. Obama's fashion style.
Can't do that here. What was she thinking?
ping for fashionista list
In order to fit in with the prols, she could have waited until they got home and taken them to Horace and Dickie’s in Northeast for a huge, gorgeous and yummy fish sammich.
I don’t know much about English Cuisine (is that an oxymoron?) but I know that Cinthia Pinto and Adriana Spanova are most certainly NOT GUILTY
Maybe they don’t like curried goat and oxtail.
Of course they support her. If the Obama health plan is enacted, there will actually be Americans seeking superior medical care in England.
...and the left has the gall to criticize the way Sarah Palin dresses...
Didn’t Barack return to the US? The wife and kids stayed behind in Europe?
Are the girls out of school for the summer already?
who paid for this trip, if I can ask? Certainly a first lady and kids traveling isn’t official business, right?
Remember Sarah Palin got in trouble because her family traveled somewhere with her?
She needs to back off the fish & chips.
Now at least Sasha and Malia were having a few Bass ales!!!
Some look delighted, others decidedly less so.
“A pint o’ bitter for me, love and half-pints for the girls. Oh, and a packet of crisps. Ta.”
Hmmmmmmmmm,,,interesting,,,,if this was Laura keeping her kids out of school to traipse around London the press would be all over it 24/7 asking why the kids aren’t in school.........
Those thighs are startign to show the effect of some good eatin’ at the white house
Why wear TWO sweaters?
I don’t get it.
Will some one PLEASE give her a CLUE.
I mean is it the ,”Sweat off 10 ugly pounds while
looking like you’ve gained twenty” diet?
Mayfair’s congested enought without the celebs. This must have made things really bad.
Not too sure how genuine the pub is with waitstaff from Spain and Eastern Europe.
That is just downright MEAN. No one can think that looks good. Even people in native costume in national ceremonies are better coordinated than that.
This proves to me that MO wished she were not American, but a
citizen queen of some kind of superworld.
For security purposes, go somewhere that no one would think you would go. Not a bad idea. Also, the place could be secured (per Secret Service review).
Speaking of waving, that dress is making me dizzy!
Sadly she believes her own press that she’s a style icon.
She’s got an apron on.
How many Holly Hobbys had to die to make that outfit?
Well, sure she likes those big, high belts.
How much longer are we going to pay for this vacation?
When are the Obamas going to begin sacrificing like the milions of people out of work in America, and the millions to come?
Never, I’d wager.
What on earth is she wearing? Did she dress in the dark?
Looks like she took a strong belt while dressing
Queen Michelle, who knew?
I think it is kind of nice that she spends as much time as possible with her daughters. Don’t care for that layered look though. I may not appreciate the parents politicis, but I don’t blame the children for them. I am glad they’re getting to see some historic things first hand.
I think she got up and said “I believe I’ll wear the kitchen curtains today.”
Why wear TWO sweaters?
I dont get it.
As one who has spent numerous “summers” in Britain, the chill is extraordinarily cold and damp. Unlike the sweltering summer of 2002, everybody’s attire is typical of the Britain I visited in the Seventies and Eighties. Many establishments lack A/C in the warm temperatures but also lack heat after June 1 (landlords sometimes turn the heat off to save a few quid).
She really needs to lose those boob belts.
“I saw them in the window and just had to have them.”
Thank you Carol Burnett.
Unless it was the start of Summer vacation. Then it would be obvious why they aren't in school.
snort, i’m gonna have to photoshop that...
LOL! The first picture looks like she has to be helped down the steps because she can’t handle the ale & the second one looks like she is tossing her cookies in the back seat.
In Britain, pubs are family gathering places; hence, the presence of children is OK.
Quick, get the table and chairs into the Smithsonian. Send the waitresses to my house.
I will say, in the ninth picture down (the part on the right), Michelle looks gorgeous.
Hideous...and the check-out counter mags are trying to glamorize this????
Seven pound fifty? Obama must have been paying for this one himself.
Yes, they sure do worry about being loved by everyone, except the people of the US.
Its perfectly legal to take children in Britain into a pub, as long as they dont drink.
I don't know if I'm cringing more when I see these jaunts now or when I will be when we're paying for their lifelong retirement annuity and expenses .. AFTER this storm is over. GRRRRrrrrrrrrrrr
Good greif! Who taught her how to dress herself?
