President Barack Obama, who arrived in London on Thursday, has described prince George as ‘adorable.’

“I guess you all know why I came this week. It’s no secret. Nothing was going to stop me from wishing happy birthday to her majesty, or meeting George, who was adorable,” Obama said during a town hall in London on Saturday.

President Obama and the First Lady met prince George before having dinner with the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace on Friday.

The prince, who was wearing check pyjamas and a white dressing gown, was dressed for bed when the Obamas arrived.

The two-year-old showed the couple the rocking horse they gave when he was born.
