Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron Meet for Tea, Couch-Chat


The Obamas continued their tour of Europe this afternoon with a visit to the Downing Street residence of British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha. In this official White House photo by Lawrence Jackson that’s sure to inspire any number of modern decor catalogs and modern decor aficionados as well as selling out the dresses here modeled, the two first ladies talk before tea. (For a lark, compare this pic to the earlier photo of Barack and Michelle meeting Prince William and Catherine in the ultra-fussy ultra-British “grand 1844 room of Buckingham Palace.”) Tonight: The President and the First Lady attend dinner hosted by Her Majesty the Queen!
