President Obama and the first lady are staying at Buckingham Palace as guests of the Queen. Today, prior to their trip to Westminster Abbey, the Obamas were met at the palace by Prince William and his new bride. This was the first official appointment the newlyweds had after returning from their honeymoon. As a gift, President Obama donated computers to Prince William’s favorite charity.
After socializing at the palace, a heavily guarded vehicle caravan exceeding twenty in number escorted President and First Lady Obama to Westminster Abbey. It is here that Mr. President laid a wreath at the tomb of an unknown warrior during the wreath laying ceremony. The president and first lady then proceeded on a tour of the abbey.
