Photo: Yes, that IS a tiara on Obama’s head! ‘Princess Obama’ breaks his own rule about headwear

White House photographer Pete Souza shared this photo of the president wearing a tiara to Instagram on Wednesday as he prepared for the end-of-year Obama photo spread.

“Still editing 2014 Year in Photos. I may include this one even though it’s a posed photo. This is from the annual White House Science Fair,” Souza wrote. “The kids from Girl Scout Troop 2612 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, convinced the President to wear a tiara with them for their group photo. The girls had exhibited a Lego flood-proof bridge project.”

It’s funny how Obama donned a tiara, but refused to try on a custom football helmet given to him by the Navy football team in 2013.

“Here’s the general rule: You don’t put stuff on your head if you’re president,” Obama said at the time. “That’s politics 101. You never look good wearing something on your head.”
