MICHELLE'S BOND WITH THE ROYALS

Back in 2016, the Royal trio invited former U.S. President Barack Obama and Michelle to a private dinner, where Harry greeted the then Frist Lady with two warm kisses on the cheek.

That night, the Obamas had the opportunity to greet little Prince George, who stood past his bedtime just so he could have a little chat with the First Couple.

Prior to that event, in 2015, Michelle, along with daughters Malia and Sasha, were invited by Harry to have tea at Kensington Palace, which they gladly accepted.

Michelle's trip to London was a part of her "Becoming" book tour, which will also take her to cities such as Paris and Berlin, but the former First Lady had to postpone the beginning of the tour due to George H. W. Bush's passing.

The former First Lady took to her Twitter account on Monday, December 2, 2018, to let her fans and followers know that she would have to reschedule a few visits in order to pay her respects to the late 94-year-old.

According to Michelle, it was very important to her to celebrate 'President George H. W. Bush's exemplary life,' which was why she hoped her readers and ticket holders would understand her decision to be at the funeral.
