The difference between the Royals and the First Family?

It's been widely reported today that First Lady Michelle Obama "touched" the Queen of England. And, perhaps in an interesting display of what differentiates the British from Americans, consider what the Daily Mail (the British national daily newspaper) had to say about "the touch" versus CelebFace (

The Daily Mail called the incident "an electrifying moment of palpable majeste." The Mail says it "may have been the Queen who made the initial move. It was the first time that anyone can remember in her long public life that she has put her arm around another woman."

CelebFace's spin was a little different...and more American perhaps? "Perhaps the Queen simply doesn't care about protocols anymore and she just wanted a cool American girlfriend," said CelebFace.

The Queen and the Prez's lady--gal pals!? BFF's? Perhaps this is this Administration's equivalent to the friendship struck between President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair.
