US President Barack Obama (2ndL) and First Lady Michelle Obama (R) leave with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II (L) and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, after a guard of honour at the Buckingham Palace in London on May 24, 2011. Obama began an official two-day state visit to Britain after charming a star-struck Ireland on the first leg of a major European tour. Obama's visit, which was brought forward due to a volcanic ash cloud drifting towards Britain, promises to be a more ceremonial affair than his jocular Irish trip with the queen rolling out the red carpet for the US leader.

US President Barack Obama (2ndL) and First Lady Michelle Obama (R) leave with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II (L) and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, after a guard of honour at the Buckingham Palace in London on May 24, 2011. Obama began an official two-day state visit to Britain after charming a star-struck Ireland on the first leg of a major European tour. Obama's visit, which was brought forward due to a volcanic ash cloud drifting towards Britain, promises to be a more ceremonial affair than his jocular Irish trip with the queen rolling out the red carpet for the US leader.

US President Barack Obama (2ndL) and First Lady Michelle Obama (R) leave with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II (L) and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, after a guard of honour at the Buckingham Palace in London on May 24, 2011. Obama began an official two-day state visit to Britain after charming a star-struck Ireland on the first leg of a major European tour. Obama's visit, which was brought forward due to a volcanic ash cloud drifting towards Britain, promises to be a more ceremonial affair than his jocular Irish trip with the queen rolling out the red carpet for the US leader.

US President Barack Obama (2ndL) and First Lady Michelle Obama (R) leave with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II (L) and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, after a guard of honour at the Buckingham Palace in London on May 24, 2011. Obama began an official two-day state visit to Britain after charming a star-struck Ireland on the first leg of a major European tour. Obama's visit, which was brought forward due to a volcanic ash cloud drifting towards Britain, promises to be a more ceremonial affair than his jocular Irish trip with the queen rolling out the red carpet for the US leader.
