Their funny remarks:
President Barack Obama:
"It's now been 200 years since the British came here to the White House under somewhat different circumstances. They made quite an impression. They really lit up the place (laughter). But we've moved on."

Prime Minister David Cameron:
"So I am a little embarrassed as I stand here to think that 200 years ago my ancestors tried to burn this place down. Now looking around me I can see you've got the place a little better defended today. You're clearly not taking any risks with the Brits this time."
