Michelle Obama Touches Queen Elizabeth
America’s First Lady Michelle Obama broke royal protocol during a reception at Buckingham Palace when she placed her arm around the Queen of England. Her Majesty returned the gesture by putting her arm round Mrs. Obama’s waist, way out of the normal. Here’s the question, did Michelle breached protocol, by placing her hand on Her Majesty’s back? Yes, regardless of on air comments, touching the Queen of England is a definite no no, under most circumstances.
This started when Queen Elizabeth told the first lady, said she hoped they could stay in touch. The Queen broke royal etiquette herself by touching Michelle on the back. Michelle in return gave the Queen a back pat. Again, touching the Queen of England is a definite no no, under most circumstances.
The Obamas presented the Queen with an ipod loaded with about forty Broadway show tunes. I know the Queen has an ipod, its the thought that counts. Now this breech of protocol. So what’s the big deal, Touching the Queen of England is a definite no no, under most circumstances. What do you think about this?
