liz comes to visit cousin georgefrom ap: With trumpet fanfare and a 21-gun salute, President Bush welcomed Queen Elizabeth II to the White House on Monday as thousands of invited guests crowded the South Lawn for a glimpse of the British monarch.

The audience laughed aloud at a verbal slip by Bush when he said the queen had dined with 10 U.S. presidents and had helped the United States "celebrate its bicentennial in 17..." Bush caught himself and corrected the date to 1976.

Bush joked that the queen just "gave me a look that only a mother could give a child."
