Subject: Travel Pool Report #7 - gift to the queen

From the White House:

On the occasion of the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama presented Her Majesty with a custom photo album chronicling her visits with U.S. Presidents and First Ladies.  Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the longest reigning monarch in British history. The collection of historical photos in the album highlights the enduring close ?friendship between the United States and the United Kingdom.

Her Majesty's first visit to the United States was in 1951 as Her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh, when she toured George Washington's historic Mount Vernon Estate and met with President Harry S. Truman.  Since that first visit, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has met with nearly every U.S. President. Her first visit to the United States as Queen occurred in 1957, during which she met with both President Dwight D. Eisenhower and former President Herbert Hoover.
