In an emotional video on Twitter, ex-US President Barack Obama recalls moments with the Queen. He tells of an encounter that his two daughters in particular probably remember.

London – Former US President Barack Obama paid tribute to the late British Queen Elizabeth II with memories of mutual encounters. 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.

A short time later, Michelle and their two daughters were invited to tea with the Queen during a stay in Great Britain. “She offered the girls a ride in the gilded carriage around the grounds of Buckingham Palace,” Obama said. That kind of generosity and attention made a deep impression on his children, he said.

She reminded him a lot of his grandmother, Obama said of the Queen. “Not only in appearance, but also in appearance.” The Queen was very benevolent, but also straightforward and had a dry sense of humor, he recalled. dpa
