The White House in Washington prepares to welcome the most important guests of the year.....The President's wife, Mamie Eisenhower, waits to greet Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip as they arrive from National Airport.
The President had met the royal couple at the airport and accompanied them on the drive into Washington. It's estimated that about a million people lined the route to acclaim the British monarch on her drive to the American capital.
The Queen and Ike had already exchanged warm greetings at the airport. Later in the evening, they exchanged toasts again at a glittering White House dinner......the climax of the first day of Her Majesty's American visit.
