The two year old, who was given a 15 minute bedtime extension by parents Prince William and Kate, was pictured shaking hands with Barack whilst wearing his nightwear - a pair of white gingham pyjamas, a monogrammed dressing gown by My 1st Years and a pair of slippers with aeroplanes on them.

The little boy took the opportunity to thank the couple for a rocking horse and stuffed toy dog they had previously given him as gifts.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: "Prince George stayed up to meet The President and First Lady when they arrived at Kensington Palace. He was able to show The President and First Lady a rocking horse – given to George when he was born - and a stuffed toy – given to George when Princess Charlotte was born - that had been previously given to him by President and Mrs Obama."

Sadly, Princess Charlotte, who turns one in two weeks, did not make an appearance as she was fast asleep.

Kensington Palace have shared three photos featuring the little royal. In one of them, proud mum Kate can be seen cheering George on as he rides a rocking horse – a gift from the Obamas when he was born. Dad Prince William and Barack Obama also feature in the snap.

The wooden toy wasn't George's only source of entertainment, earlier on in the evening he had been playing with a stuffed toy dog, a past gift from the Obamas.
