Prince George meets President Obama

Prince George steals the show yet again as he greets President Barack Obama in his dressing gown!

It's like something out of a fairytale.
A sleepy Prince all bundled up for bed (in his bespoke robe, no less) wanders out to meet some of mummy and daddy's guests.
Those guests just happen to be the President of the United States and The First Lady.
These are the heart-warming scenes that played out at Kensington Palace's 1A Apartment in London on Friday as Prince William, Duchess Catherine and Prince Harry hosted Michelle and Barack Obama for dinner.
Look at me go! George showed off his rocking horse skills as Duchess Catherine proudly clapped him on. The toy was given to George from The Obamas when he was born.
Prince George, who turns three in July, made a star appearance right before his bedtime to greet the esteemed guests.
But judging by the sheepish look on his face when he shook President Obama's hand, the youngster didn't fully comprehend the magnitude of his encounter.
George looked utterly adorable in a white dressing gown with his name emblazoned across it, crisp blue chequered pajamas and a pair of slippers with aeroplanes on the front of them.

Meanwhile his younger sister Princess Charlotte, 11 months, was tucked up in bed.
A Kensington Palace Spokesman said of the historical meeting: "Prince George stayed up to meet The President and First Lady when they arrived at Kensington Palace."
"He was able to show The President and First lady a rocking horse – given to George when he was born - and a stuffed toy – given to George when Princess Charlotte was born - that had been previously given to him by President and Mrs Obama."
It was a big week for George as he made his stamp debut to help celebrate his Gan Gan's 90th birthday. Post continues after the video!
Clearly thrilled to be allowed to stay up past his bedtime, George happily played on his rocking horse, which was a gift from the Obamas.
Proud mum Catherine clapped him on as he showed off all his tricks while William and The President watched on.
Later in the evening, The Obamas enjoyed a casual dinner with William, Harry and Catherine.
Reunited! The group posed for a quick photo outside of Kensington Palace.
This marks a huge moment for the trio of British Royals as it's first time they've hosted a world leader privately and at Kensington Palace.
It's yet another sign of The Queen trusting the next generation to carry on her legacy and entrust them with more responsibility.
Earlier in the day The President and First Lady, who are in the UK for a four-day trip, met with The Queen for lunch at Windsor Castle before holding a press conference with British Prime Minister, David Cameron, at 10 Downing Street on the European Union.
Ahead of their meal, the royals enjoyed a catch up with The President and First Lady in the Drawing Room of Apartment 1A, Kensington Palace.
This is the first time William, Catherine and Harry have hosted a world leader privately.
