The three principal rooms of the suite are furnished in a style that gives the visiting head of State an idea of how British Royalty lived in previous centuries. Yellow is the predominant colour in the main 18th Century Room, and among the Royal portraits are three-quarter-length paintings of King George III and Queen Charlotte, while works by Canaletto stand alongside one of Gainsborough’s most famous paintings, Diana And Actaeon.

President and Mrs Obama will sleep in the blue Orleans Bedroom, with two canopied beds and no fewer than three pictures of a previous Royal hostess, Queen Victoria.

The Spanish Room is the third and smallest of the apartments, and if the Obamas bring their children, this is where they will sleep. Otherwise, it is used as a dressing room. Two paintings of Napoleon Bonaparte hang in this room – one showing him crossing the Alps, the other during his final years of captivity on the island of St Helena.

That is definitely thread worthy.

Since he's already changed all the portraits in the White House to ones of himself, I wonder if he'll also try it in there?

I wonder if he'll pull a King George the III?
