Earlier, we noted how Time typed up an excited dispatch about how folks in England were supposedly all in a tizzy because Michelle Obama broke protocol and touched the Queen of England during their meeting. Turns out Inside Edition did what journalists are supposed to do; it made a few calls and got a quote from somebody in a position to know about the (non) story.
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace tells Inside Edition that "it's obvious that it was a mutual sign of affection and appreciated between the queen and Michelle Obama. There is no offense. The reception was an informal occasion. There's no breach of protocol."
