Dancing Queen: Obama presents monarch with iPod



LONDON (AFP) - US President Barack Obama presented Queen Elizabeth II with a personalised Apple iPod ahead of a reception for G20 leaders at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, a palace spokesman said.
As Obama and his wife Michelle met with the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, the US leader gave her a personalised MP3 player with video footage of her 2007 visit to Washington and Virginia.

The spokesman said that, in return, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh gifted the Obamas with signed portraits of themselves.
Obama's present follows negative headlines here over his most recent gift to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown during his visit to the United States last month -- a set of 25 DVDs.
As he and his wife left Buckingham Palace after the reception, Obama described the visit as "wonderful", adding: "Her majesty is delightful."
