It has just been revealed that Barack Obama kept a huge secret from Michelle Obama when they visited Buckingham Palace during his presidency.
People Magazine reported that in his new memoir, Obama’s national security advisor Ben Rhodes wrote that when the Obamas stayed at Buckingham Palace back in 2011, the former president was preparing a speech when a butler suddenly came to his room.
“Mr. President, pardon me,” the butler reportedly said. “There’s a mouse.”
“Don’t tell the first lady,” Obama replied, as Michelle had already gone to sleep.
“We’ll try to catch it, sir,” the butler said.
“Just don’t tell the First Lady,” Obama repeated.
While Obama likely did not want Michelle to be told because she is afraid of mice, there was probably another reason behind what he said as well. Michelle has always fancied herself to be royalty, so she likely would have been livid to learn that Queen Elizabeth thought so little of her that she put her in a mice-infested room in her palace. Clearly, the Queen had enough of Michelle’s attitude and decided to put her in her place by putting her in one of the worst rooms in Buckingham Palace!
This comes after Michelle was humiliated when she was not invited to the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Michelle had spent months angling for an invite, but the royal family was not having any of it.
“Barack and I are thrilled to congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their newest arrival! We hope to meet him soon for a Kensington Palace pajama party. I’ll wear my robe!” Michelle tweeted after the engagement was announced.
