Prince George has stolen the show during a visit by the US President to the United Kingdom, shaking hands with Barack Obama -- while dressed in his pyjamas.

The US President and First Lady are in Britain for a number of high-profile events but had an informal dinner at Kensington Palace with Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry on Friday (local time).

After his evening bath, Prince George was taken down to meet the Obamas in his monogrammed dressing gown and slippers.

He shook hands with the President and played on a rocking horse the Obamas had given the family as gift when the Prince was born.

The rocking horse was handmade from an ancient tree that once stood on the grounds of the White House.

The four-day presidential visit was the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, have privately entertained a head of state.

The President had earlier met with the Queen for lunch at Windsor Castle describing her as "a jewel to the world" and one of his favourite people.

Mr Obama also met with British Prime Minister David Cameron and caused controversy when he advocated for the UK to remain in the European Union.
