The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden and Queen Elizabeth will be meeting next week, Buckingham Palace says.
According to the post by Buckingham Palace on Thursday 3rd June 2021, Joe Biden and Queen Elizabeth II will meet at Windsor Castle, a meeting that will happen during the U.S President’s visit to the United Kingdom to attend the Group of Seven leaders’ summit next week.
The monarch will host the president and first lady Jill Biden on the final day of the June 11-13 summit taking place in Cornwall, England, the palace said Thursday.
The leaders of the wealthy industrialized nations are holding their first face-to-face meeting in more than two years.
Host nation Britain is keen to show that the rich countries’ club still has clout in a fast-changing world. It also hopes to use the U.K.’s G-7 presidency this year to help forge a post-Brexit “Global Britain” role for the country.
The queen, who is set to celebrate 70 years on the throne next year, has met with every U.S. president except for Lyndon Johnson during her reign.
Joe Biden who was recently elected as the President of the United States, will be meeting the Queen for the first time since taking over office as President.
Biden’s visit comes amid explosive new allegations of systemic racism in the royal family, an issue that was earlier suggested in Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
