When the commander-in-chief meets the Duke of Cambridge, there's bound to be plenty of excitement. So just to be on the safe side, the White House made sure to lay down a few guidelines for pool reporters. Chief among them: no selfies.
President Obama met with Prince William during his brief trip to D.C. Monday. William visited the nation's capitol to give a speech at the World Bank about wildlife poaching.
But for the cameras, the two kept their conversation on lighter subjects. William told Obama, "I remember when George was born, I forgot to actually work out whether it was a boy or a girl. The excitement of the event and everything else was just chaos."
