Appalling! First Lady Michelle Obama thinks she's as good as the Queen!
Well, she is. And so am I, but you won't see me underlining the point by patting Her Majesty on the back. I've always wondered if I would have the strength to refuse to kiss her hand if that is what protocol required. The answer is probably no.
There's a kind of natural grace in our First Lady that makes us all proud that she represents us.
I can't help but wonder whether the break with WASPs in the White House has anything to do with the increased familiarity. And isn't it about time. Americans hold the British Crown and British titles with a weird reverence for a group of people who fought a bloody war to be free of the British King and Queen.
Of course, I am one of the worst Anglophiles around. I followed the movements of Princess Diana with passion and actually woke my father up at 1 a.m. sobbing about her death. I didn't even do that for my engagement.
My parents were very concerned for me: "It's not like you knew her." my father suggested helpfully. My sisters needed to intervene and explain about Princess Diana as cultural phenomenon. He still didn't get it.
Ah, well. Give the old Queen an iPod and pat her on the back. I suppose next she'll be barbecuing in the back yard of the palace.
