Obama gifts for royal children

US First Lady Michelle Obama has brought gifts for Prince George and his newborn sister Princess Charlotte.

Mrs Obama has given the two royal youngsters presents made from her native America, the US Embassy said.

She gave six-week-old Charlotte an American-made Amish rocking chair and a personalised Alpaca baby blanket, according to an official travelling with her.

And she gave George, who will turn two next month, a red American-made children's wagon known as a Berlin Flyer P-Wee Wagon.

She brought the gifts with her on a trip to the capital to boost access to education for girls around the world.

Mrs Obama spoke to pupils at Mulberry School for Girls in the East End of London, where she was greeted by such ear-splitting screams her popularity was liked to Beatlemania.

The First Lady also spoke to Prince Harry as part of her promotion of the Let Girls Learn initiative.

She had been accompanied by her daughters Malia, 16, and Sasha, 14, and her mother, Marian Robinson, and flew out of Britain this morning.
