Nancy Reagan to Lunch with Michelle Obama

Tuesday, 02 Jun 2009 02:07 PM

WASHINGTON--Former First Lady Nancy Reagan will lunch with First Lady Michelle Obama on Wednesday, the East Wing confirmed to news agencies Tuesday.

Reagan was at the White House on Tuesday afternoon for the signing of the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission Act in the Diplomatic Reception Room. Wednesday will also see the unveiling of the Ronald Reagan Statue in Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol. June 5 marks the fifth anniversary of his death.

The lunch comes after a Vanity Fair article released this week in which Reagan revealed that she advised the Obamas to entertain in the White House. She also told Vanity Fair she was disappointed not to be invited to the White House when President Obama ended the Bush era ban on embryonic stem cell research. Reagan is a stem cell research supporter.

“I would have gone, and you know I don’t like to travel,’’ Nancy Reagan told the magazine. “Politically it would have been a good thing for him to do. Oh well, nobody’s perfect. He called and thanked me for working on it. But he could have gotten more mileage out of it.’’

Reagan has been recovering from a bad fall last September that caused her to fracture her pelvis, but has been gaining strength and is believed to be in good health. She turns 88 on July 6.
