There are very few people in the world Obama would go weak at the knees when meeting.
High-profile politicians? Please. Celebrities? Of course.
What about the world’s most powerful 2-year-old? I’m sure this one had Obama just a tad fluttery on the inside. With sweaty palms to boot.
Two of the world’s most famous and most powerful men (can we call Prince George a man?) came together yesterday and one can assume Prince George had very little clue who Obama was.
But the meeting has still culminated in the release of what we believe could possibly be the cutest photos of George ever taken.
Big statement, we are so aware. But would you actually look at the scepticism-come-indifference on that little boys face?
Prince George genuinely has no clue who this strange man is. And isn’t afraid to show it.

Kensington Palace released the images this morning to a flurry of melting hearts, making us also realise the powerful families may have come together in the middle of Kate and Wills’ personal apartment.
Obama and wife Michelle were welcomed to Kensington Palace for dinner with the family, so if George’s awfully casual pyjama-meets-dressing-gown attire is anything to go by, it appears little George was simply pottering around his house before being rudely interrupted by someone he doesn’t know and posed for photos he doesn’t understand.
Watch: This isn’t the first time Prince George has posed for cute photos. His birthday photos were cute too. (Post continues after video.)
Princess Charlotte was already asleep by the time the Obamas arrived.
Regardless, what a great photo op for all involved. And an even better story for us to wake up to on this Saturday morning.
