Michelle Obama Dressed All Covered Up During Their Short Visit To The Saudi Arabian Royal Family

The President of United States of America and the first lady Mrs Obama was in Riyadh on Tuesday to pay their respects to the Saudi Arabian royal family on the death of King Abdullah. Michael was first seen wearing a flora dress while leaving New Dehli on Tuesday but landed in Saudi Arabia a few hours later dressed in a more conservative long-sleeved jacket and slacks. On their arrival, the group lined up to greet the president and his wife, some of the Saudis shook the First Lady's hand while others just nodded their head.
There have been backlash on Mrs Obama for not wearing a headscarf or veil during their visit. Some social media users pointed out that on a recent trip to Indonesia, Michelle had worn a headscarf. Why not in Saudi Arabia?....Through-out the short visit Mrs Obama showed off a more tired face than a smiling face.

 In Saudi women must always have a male chaperone when going out in public, they can't try on clothes while shopping or open a bank account without their husband's permission.Women are also banned from driving cars.
