“I don’t think she’ll be insulted, but she reminded me of my mother,” Biden said as he boarded Air Force One, remarking on “the look of her and the generosity.” Biden also confirmed that he invited her to visit the White House.

Biden is the 13th serving president Elizabeth has met. As queen, she has met every serving president since Dwight D. Eisenhower — except Lyndon B. Johnson, who did not travel to Britain while in office. As a 25-year-old princess in 1951, she also stayed with President Harry S. Truman and his family in Washington.
