US President Barack Obama has joked that Prince George's dressing gown reception was a "slap in the face" as it hinted he is on the way out of office.

The prince's informal attire showed "some foreign leaders are looking ahead", the outgoing President mused at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, jesting it was a "clear breach of protocol". Images of the prince meeting the President in his pyjamas were broadcast around the world.

Obama quipped that being greeted by George in his pyjamas was a slight akin to Republican leaders no longer answering his phone calls - a sign attention is elsewhere as he prepares to leave office later this year.
