Mrs. Kennedy Visits Buckingham Palace

Mar. 28, 1962 - Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy was greeted with cheers and wolf whistles today when she drove to Buckingham Palace for lunch with Queen Elizabeth II. “I had a wonderful English lunch,” Mrs. Kennedy said later. She said she and the Queen had talked “mostly about India,” which the First Lady visited this month and the Queen last year. A crowd around the home of Mrs. Kennedy’s sister, Princess Lee Radziwill, cheered when President Kennedy’s wife emerged, wearing a red wool suit and a mink hat. Workmen clinging to scaffolding on a nearby building responded with prolonged whistles.
