Barack Obama and his wife departed for the UK earlier this week, and, while the president is tending to serious business-- the G20 economic summit in London and, from there, a week of meetings in five different countries--Michelle Obama is along for more jovial pursuits.
She's playing high-style dress up, sitting for tea, giving official gifts, and even meeting the Queen.
