Tea for Two (Two First Ladies, that is)

Our First Lady, Michelle Obama, made her debut on the international stage Wednesday, accompanying President Obama on a early morning visit to No 10 Downing Street.

The couple exchanged warm greetings with Gordon and Sarah Brown (their First Lady), before the two men peeled off for talks ahead of the opening of the G20 summit.

Before embarking on her first official engagement in the UK, Michelle Obama started the day in a suitably British fashion: with a cup of tea. The two women then travelled in convoy to Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre, which provides support, information and advice for people affected by the disease.

Sarah Brown, patron of the charity, introduced the First Lady to Laura Lee, the chief executive of Maggie's. Obama handed over a present, and was rewarded with a slice of cake and, inevitably, another brew.
