Don't touch the Queen

England is in shock... SHOCK... that First Lady Michelle Obama broke royal protocol and actually touched Queen Elizabeth during their meeting yesterday. Well, okay, maybe not, but the story is making the tabloids as if it was a big deal, though to whom isn't clear. The Queen herself didn't seem bothered by any of it and was reportedly the one who initiated contact by putting her her arm on Mrs. Obama's back, after which the first lady returned the gesture by putting her arm around the Queen for a few seconds. Aides were shocked but nobody actually seeemed offended.

I doubt this will be news by this time tomorrow but it does seem funny that anyone would care about it if the Queen herself did not.

Watch the moment that shocked the world here
