Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. 

Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady's billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. 

Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

As Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton arrived in New Zealand with her husband Prince William and son Prince George, the skirt of her red Catherine Walker coat flew up in the front, giving the Duchess of Cambridge an extremely close call.
