You'd expect the most high-profile of guests at the First Fmily's annual Easter Egg Roll wouldn't you? President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle host the event every year, and this year saw surprise guests in the form of none other than the king and queen of the entertainment industry!

Beyonce and Jay Z made an appearance at the event, with their daughter Blue Ivy,4, tagging along. The pair are amongst the first couple's celebrity friends, with the Formation singer having performed at Obama's inauguration bash.

The stars clearly coordinated their look for the Easter treat in Washington, D.C. - Beyonce wore a black and white striped Alice + Olivia coat over a floral Marco de Vincenzo dress, while Jay donned a matching striped T-shirt. Their daughter also arrived dressed up for the occasion, wearing bunny ears and a fur coat.

The 2016 Easter Egg Roll at the White House was extra special for the Obamas as it was their last. The President will complete two terms in office at the beginning on 2017, when he will hand over the job to a new politician.

Beyonce's trip to Washington, D.C. was a big deal for singers Chloe x Halle, who performed at the White House party. They tweeted a photo with the singer and wrote: "Big thank you to our beautiful boss lady @beyonce for coming and supporting us at #thewhitehouse today!!!!!!"

Beyonce's mum, Tina Knowles, was also in attendance. She posted a photo of herself and her new husband at the White House, calling the trip to spend the last Easter with the President 'an honor'.

Meanwhile, the family's White House outing wasn't without drama - the building was placed on lockdown shortly after the 138th Easter Egg Roll event following reports of gunshots at the Visitors Center at the Capitol Complex. A shooter was quickly apprehended and taken into custody, and the lockdown was lifted.

Just another day if you're a celebrity, we suppose!
