Obama to meet Queen ahead of G-20March 6th, 2009 - 5:03 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar. 6 (ANI): Ahead of G-20 economic summit, Queen Elizabeth is expected to hold a private getting-to-know-you meeting with Obama.
The Sun quoted a source, as saying, There is a wish to do these things as discreetly as possible in the first instance.
Her Majesty will meet the new US President in advance of an economic summit in London.
President Obama will fly with wife Michelle on Air Force One to Stansted, Essex. The private talks will be held the next day at Buckingham Palace.
Obama will then join G-20 leaders for a Downing Street dinner on the eve of the summit on April 2.
The private meeting is highly unusual because Obama will not be on a State visit.
But advisers believe it is important the Queen, who opened an interchange in Hull yesterday, meets him before any official trip.
On Thursday, Obama reportedly gave Gordon Brown 25 top US movies as a gift after talks in the US.
Browns wife Sarah gave Obamas two daughters Topshop outfits. And the First Lady gave Browns two boys toy helicopters. (ANI)
