President Bush Visits Britain

By  | 

Security has been stepped up because of plans for large-scale demonstrations against the war in Iraq.

President Bush was met by Prince Charles at Heathrow airport. Mr. Bush will stay at Buckingham Palace as a guest of Queen Elizabeth II.

Two other U.S. presidents, Woodrow Wilson and Ronald Reagan, have stayed at Buckingham Palace as "official guests" of the British Royal Family, but President Bush is the first American leader to arrive on what is designated as an official state visit.
