Queen Elizabeth II: President Bush and Queen Elizabeth

President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush honored her majesty Queen Elizabeth II and his Royal Highness Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh with an elaborate state arrival ceremony and dinner. They planted a Linden tree together to replace the one that was felled by a storm. The original was planted in 1937 in order to honor the ascension of King George VI, her father to the throne.
