Michelle Obama’s Surprise Visit to London

Jun 9th, 2009 | By | Category: London News

Monday 8th June, Michelle Obama and the first children make a surprise visit to London following President Barack Obama’s attendance at the weekend’s D-Day commemorations in Normandy. According to reports in the local press it was Michelle’s idea that, after the shopping extranvagances of Paris, the kids ought to have a more educational trip, and so they were shown around the original seat of democracy – The Houses of Parliament.┬áMichelle, Sasha and Malia also visited nearby Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire to see the set of the Harry Potter movies

Following on from their day of sightseeing the family dined in a good old-fashioned British Pub: The Audley, in Mayfair (41 Mount Street, London, W1K 2RX). Michelle went for the steak, while the girls fancied the more traditional dish of fish and chips. The family spent 2 and a half hours having dinner and chatting to the locals -imagine their surprise, rubbing shoulders with the first lady!

  1. Paris gets 3 x the number of visitors London does, and here Michelle Obama shows that it’s perfectly plausible to do both. The Eurostar connects Paris and London and is only a 2 hour journey. After all, it would be silly to fly half way across the world and not visit London as well!
