MEET AND GREETS

Obamas Rub Elbows With Royalty

After a private meeting at Buckingham Palace with Queen Elizabeth II, President Obama and the first lady returned to 10 Downing Street for a state dinner, where he and the other G-20 leaders planned to hammer out a final agreement ahead of the formal summit Thursday. Earlier today, as the presidential armored limo passed through the gates to the palace, thousands of people on the street waved and tried to catch a glimpse of the president and the first lady. This morning, Obama and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown pledged cooperation among the G-20 and said a consensus on an economic plan was within reach. Obama has promised to "listen, not lecture" at the summit.
