Obama at a banquet at Buckingham Palace in 2011 broke royal protocol by speaking over national anthem

Barack Obama suffered an awkward moment during a banquet at Buckingham Palace in 2011 when he broke royal protocol by speaking over the national anthem.

“President Obama has joked that a musical mistake during his toast to the Queen was ‘like a soundtrack’ to his speech,” reported the BBC.

“The US president lightheartedly told Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg that he thought it added a film-like crescendo to his words […] the Queen did not appear to be offended and thanked the leader for his ‘very kind’ words.”
