US President Barack Obama started his last day in the UK with a meeting with David Cameron and the cabinet to put the world to rights.

He then joined his wife Michelle and Samantha Cameron to a BBQ in the beautiful grounds of Downing Street in the sunshine.  This was a real American style BBQ and the President and David both flipped their burgers to 150 British and American Servicemen and their wives.

The First Lady then went to Oxford University's Christ Church college where she caught up with schoolgirls she met two years ago on a previous visit from Elizabeth Garrett Anderson school.  She spoke to them and then they asked her lots of different questions about her life.

Barack Obama spent the afternoon at Westminster Hall he was the first US President to address members of both Houses of Parliement there.  Previoulsy speakers have been people  such as the Queen, The Pope and Nelson Mandela, a hard act to follow?

In the evening the President and his First Lady organized a small thank you to the Queen for Tuesday's state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

It was a black tie affair and Michelle Obama looked stunning. It was held at U.S ambassador's home Winfield House in Regents Park,  London.  There was a real mix of guests from David Beckham, Colin Firth, J K Rowling to the Prime Minister and his wife.

The two day tour has now come to an end and the President and the First Lady have left this morning in their helicopter from the grounds of Buckingham Palace to go to France for the G8 summit meeting.  It has been a memorable and very busy two days for the Obama's and we look forward to seeing them again soon on British soil.
