June 11, 1939 - FDR HOSTS A ROYAL PICNIC
Daisy attends a picnic lunch given by FDR for George VI and Queen Elizabeth of England at Top Cottage. It is the first visit of a reigning English monarch to the US. The Roosevelts introduce the King and Queen to hot dogs and entertain them with a program of Native American dancing. This was not Daisy’s first experience with the King and Queen; she had attended King George’s coronation in London two years before.
