White House to Reporters: No Selfies with Prince William

During his visit to the United States, Prince Willy the Great met President Obama for no real reason. Despite the meaninglessness of the event, you never can be too careful when dealing with the media, so the White House ordered reporters not to take selfies.

According to The Telegraph, before the pool reporters were brought into the room, the President’s aide made a point of asking that no one act like a 13-year-old. This was necessary because when Obama met with France’s president François Hollande, a group of French journalists couldn’t resist taking selfies.

This is the world we live in. Embrace it.
