  • President Joe Biden and his wife were honored with a royal salute in the quadrangle before Star Spangled Banner was also played.

  • Biden will then join senior commanders to examine the Guard before returning to the dais to watch a military parade with the first lady and the queen.

  • The Bidens were then presented to Dame Annabel Whitehead, the Queen’s lady-in-waiting, before eating tea in the castle’s Oak Room.
  • It comes after the conclusion of the G7 conference in Cornwall, where world leaders discussed problems such as vaccinations and climate change.
  • FalseJoe Biden said that “She was very generous. I don’t think she’d be insulted but she reminded me of my mother. In terms of the look of her and just the generosity. She was very gracious.” Joe Biden also added that he invited her to the White House.
