Touching the Queen is a big deal

Just looking over the world wide web and came across a blog about the First Lady, Michelle Obama touching Queen Elizabeth.  The blog mentioned that no one touches the queen unless she initiates it.  Well, she did and Michelle returned the gesture.  Photographers see this, take pics, and run with it.  The blog said that the Queen rarely touches and to see her doing so was definitely out of the norm.  Those who follow palace etiquette said that Michelle needs to follow protocol.  I say, "so what."  What do you say?

  1. They're hatin on Michelle. What the Faux Newsoids forgot to mention is that Queen Elizabeth II touched Michelle first.

    They're also hating because the Queen didn't see fit to put her arm around any of 'their' First Ladies, but felt a warm enough kinship with the first African-American one to do so.
