Former US President Barack Obama paid tribute to the late British Queen Elizabeth II with memories of encounters they had together. In a video that he published on his Twitter account, Obama (61) reported on his visits to London as US President. "She couldn't have been kinder or more thoughtful to me and Michelle," Obama said of his first meeting with the Queen, to which his wife accompanied him.
She reminded him a lot of his grandmother, Obama said of the Queen. "Not only from the outside, but also in appearance." The Queen was very benevolent but also straightforward and had a dry sense of humour, he recalled.
