If we are going to spread gossip, let's at least get it right. Please see the attached web links to see what really happened between Michele Obama and the Queen. Michele is the only one that the Queen has broken protocol and hugged in public. If we are going to tell the story we need to get all the facts, especially when we are putting the person we are telling the story about down.
Michelle and her husband are made for each other......one bows and one hugs.....so nice of them.......oh yeah, I am one of those arrogant American he talked about.
Jennifer, You have a nice Easter.
Well, I just seen a video that said that the First Lady did not break the protocol that the Queen herself said it was just a hug of Affection.
Did the Saudi King initiat the BOW?
Hi Jennifer, No the Saudi did not initiate the bow, but I don't see anything wrong with it. The President was clearly showing an acknowledgement of respect which to me is perfectly OK.
Hi Jennifer, one other thing, this question was on Michelle Obama, not the President.
Who's putting her down? She just broke protocol, as you or I might have done.
As for what the Queen said...she was just being polite. A little story...
Many years ago an American was sitting at the dinner table with the Queen. He picked up one of the little bowls [used to wash your fingers] filled with water and took a sip...a big no no. What did the Queen do? She picked up her finger bowl and took a sip...it's called being polite.
Other people asked questions on various topics, and are still waiting for answer. Would be great if you can take a sec and answer them
