President Obama & First Lady Michelle Visits Buckingham Palace

Daily Mail

The State visit to Britain is the highlight of
any Presidential term of office.’
So said Ronald Reagan, US President from
1981-1989, and his words have been echoed by several of his fellow Presidents. Gerald Ford, who served from 1974 to 1977, told me, after dancing with Her Majesty to the tune Getting To Know You:
‘It sure was a long way from my origins in Omaha, Nebraska.’

Every year since she came to the throne in
1952, the Queen has invited two heads of State to stay at either Buckingham
Palace or Windsor Castle. This week, Barack Obama and his wife Michelle will fly
into London for a two-day visit

These visits are an integral part of the Royal
year, with each guest being treated in an identical fashion as to the protocol
and accommodation. It doesn’t matter if the country concerned is the most
powerful nation on Earth or the tiniest – the hospitality is exactly the
same.

At Buckingham Palace, after their ceremonial
welcome followed by the mandatory carriage
drive along the flag-bedecked Mall, President Obama and the First Lady will be
given the use of the Belgian Suite on the
ground floor at the rear of the
Palace.
