WASHINGTON — First lady Michelle Obama, Malia, Sasha and her mother, Marian Robinson are in London, and on Tuesday they had tea with Prince Harry at Kensington Palace.

From a column by the first lady in FT.com: “I intend to use my remaining time as first lady — and beyond — to rally leaders across the globe to join us in this work. Because every girl, no matter where she lives, deserves the opportunity to develop the promise inside of her.”

And on that tea, the White House East Wing passed this along from a KensingtonPalace spokesman:
