Prince George wears robe and slippers to meet President Obama and Michelle

Prince George is fast learning how to rub shoulders with world leaders - even when it happens past his bedtime! The two-year-old donned his pjs to shake hands with President Obama on Friday (Apr. 22) during the first couple's visit with the British royals.

George was adorably dressed for the occasion wearing a crisp white robe embroidered with his name over his pale-blue, gingham pyjamas and slippers as he got acquainted with POTUS. The American leader and his wife Michelle Obama were dining with the royal tot's parents Prince William and Kate and his uncle Prince Harry at Kensington Palace.

Attached to the photo posted on Twitter, Kensington Palace said, "Prince George meets The President and First Lady of the United States."


While the future king had never met the Obamas before, he had received a special present from them back in 2014. To celebrate his first birthday, Barack and the first lady gifted the Cambridges' son with a handmade rocking horse.

On April 22, George was personally able to thank his visiting guests for his special toy. The palace tweeted out a photo of Princess Charlotte's big brother seated on his rocking horse as his mother, father and Barack looked on with applause. Alongside the photo they wrote, "Prince George thanks @BarackObama for his rocking horse."

The saddle of George's wooden toy bears the presidential seal, while it is partly made from a branch of an oak tree which once stood on the South Lawn of the White House.
