In photos: Biden meets Queen Elizabeth
President Biden and the first lady met on Sunday with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle.
Driving the news: The Bidens were greeted by the Queen's Guard of Honor and then retired to a private tea within the castle. Biden spoke warmly about their meeting, saying the queen "reminded him of his mother" and that she was "very gracious," according to pool reports.
- Biden also confirmed that he had invited the queen to come visit the White House.
The state of play: The meeting comes on the heels of this past week's G7 summit in Cornwall, England, and right before the president travels to Brussels to meet with NATO and European Union leaders.
- This is the second meeting this week between Biden and the Queen, who greeted each other at a G7 reception and dinner on Friday.
- Biden is the 13th sitting U.S. president to meet with the 95-year-old monarch. The two have met once before in 1982 when Biden was a senator.
- Earlier this week Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson reaffirmed the "special relationship" between their two countries by signing a renewed Atlantic Charter.
