The newlywed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle while in the U.K. at Buckingham Palace today.
The Obamas were invited by Queen Elizabeth herself to a luncheon welcoming the American visitors to her country.
The two couples spoke for about twenty minutes about the recent royal wedding as well as Kate and William’s upcoming visit to California this coming July.
They all stepped out onto the terrace where renditions of both nations national anthems could be heard, and Prince Philip inspected the guard of honor alongside his guest.
After their luncheon the Obamas visited Westminster Abbey, and placed a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Warrior, which is where Kate’s bridal bouquet had also be sent.
The President and wife will stay for two nights at Buckingham Palace before continuing on their European tour.
