Queen Elizabeth II will meet President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden later this month at the royal residence of Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace announced on Thursday. It would be the first meeting of the two heads of state and government since Mr Biden was elected.
The meeting on June 13, which is part of President Biden’s first trip abroad, which will include stops at the Summit of the Group of Seven in England, a meeting with the European Union in Brussels and a face-to-face conversation with the President, was not discussed further details announced Vladimir V. Putin of Russia.
Later on Thursday, the White House confirmed the Biden’s visit to the queen.
The British monarch last received an American president in June 2019 when Donald J. Trump made a lavish state visit to the country that he later described as “a great time”. But the event sparked controversy as only a handful of American presidents received the honor of an official state visit. Some British citizens and lawmakers protested the visit.
And on an earlier visit in 2018, Mr Trump notoriously made headlines when he walked in front of 95-year-old Elizabeth during a Royal Guard inspection – in violation of protocol.
Elizabeth, the longest-ruling monarch in the world, has met with every American president since Harry S. Truman, with the exception of Lyndon B. Johnson. She will celebrate her 70th anniversary on the throne next year.
