Queen meets Joe Biden at Windsor Castle

US President Joe Biden and เล่นสล็อต First Lady Jill Biden have met the Queen at Windsor Castle.

 

The visit included a Guard of Honour and afternoon tea with the monarch.

 

Mr Biden said afterwards that the Queen had reminded him of his mother, and he had invited the Queen to visit
the White House.

 

It comes at the end of the G7 summit in Cornwall, where leaders of the world's biggest economies have discussed issues
including vaccines and climate change.

 

The couple also met the Queen on Friday, when she attended a reception for G7 leaders at the Eden Project.

 

The Bidens travelled from Newquay, Cornwall, on Air Force One to London's Heathrow Airport before taking the Marine
One helicopter the short distance to Windsor.

 

They were greeted by the Queen at the dais in the castle's quadrangle.

 

A Guard of Honour formed of the Queen's Company First Battalion Grenadier Guards gave a Royal Salute, and the US
national anthem was played.

 

Mr Biden accompanied the Officer Commanding the Guard of Honour, Maj James Taylor, and Maj Gen Christopher Ghika
to inspect the Honour Guard, before returning to the dais to watch the military march-past.

 

The role of escorting a visiting head of state to inspect the troops was usually carried out by the Duke of Edinburgh,
before he retired in 2017. Prince Philip died in April, aged 99.

 

The Bidens were then introduced to the Queen's lady-in-waiting, Dame Annabel Whitehead, before enjoying tea in
the castle's Oak Room.

 

The palace said the couple left at just after 18:00 BST, meaning they spent around 40 minutes inside the castle.

 

The whole visit lasted just over an hour and is believed to have overrun by 10 minutes.
