Meeting the President of France

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh received the Olympic Torch at Windsor Castle. Her Majesty later hosted the new President of France, Francois Hollande, for tea during his visit to Britain.
Showing off the French skillz. Respect. Not sure that quite makes up for the gift disparity (she gave him signed and framed portraits of herself and Philip, he gave her a Sevres porcelain statue of Poseidon's wife Amphitryon on the back of a sea horse because she likes horses so very much), but okay. Blame that one on the diplomats.
