Her Majesty the Queen met with the President of the United States yesterday, in the presidents’ official state visit to the United Kingdom.
There has been a lot of talk on social media after the President allegedly broke Royal Protocol by touching the Queen on her back.
As you can see from the (link) photograph the President is seen putting his hand out to touch the Queens’ back.
Her Majesty the Queen certainly does not look bothered by the friendly gesture, as she smiles toward the President.
This comes as Michelle Obama broke Royal Protocol in 2009 by inappropriately touching the Queen, too. It was also on her back.
