The Brits love Michelle Obama even though she did something you’re not supposed to do, i.e. touch the Queen. Richard Nixon tried to touch the Queen’s arm and she shrugged him off; just a sign to me that the Queen Mother has good taste.
The queen put her arm around Michelle, too. It was not clear who touched whom first.
The British press are calling Michelle, “Mighty Michelle” and “a new Jacqueline Kennedy”. See the rest of the story here.
What do you bloggers think? Is this fond reception important, or more made up news? I and others would especially like to hear from our shy, or not so shy, visitors.
