Britain’s leader, Queen Elizabeth will welcome US President, Joe Biden to Windsor Castle on June 13 for their first one-on-one meeting, Buckingham Palace have announced.
Elizabeth’s meeting with Biden and first lady Jill Biden will come during the President’s visit to the United Kingdom for the upcoming G7 summit, his first trip abroad since taking office.
It will be the Queen’s first major meeting with a world leader since the death of her husband, Prince Philip, in April, and comes after a year in which most of her in-person engagements were scrapped because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Over the course of her reign, the 95-year-old monarch has met with every US President except Lyndon Johnson.
The pair have been in touch in recent months. The Queen sent a private congratulatory message ahead of his inauguration in January and earlier this year, the Bidens sent condolences to the Queen, the royal family and the United Kingdom after Philip’s death.
