Joe Biden and the First Lady were greeted by Queen Elizabeth Sunday at Windsor Castle , where they were given a formal military welcome, followed by a decidedly more informal British tradition—an afternoon cup of tea. The queen , wearing a floral pink dress and matching hat, looked on sparkling form, smiling broadly and chatting with Biden and his wife Dr . Jill Biden , in marked contrast to the stiff formality that pervaded the atmosphere when she greeted Donald Trump at the same venue in 2018 and again at London’s Buckingham Palace in 2019.

In gorgeous afternoon sunshine, the queen emerged from the Sovereign’s Entrance of Windsor Castle at exactly 1705 local time (1205 EST) and precisely three minutes later, she greeted the Bidens in the shade of an elegant tent set up in castle’s quadrangle, as part of what looks certain to be the biggest set piece image of Biden’s visit to Europe.

Queen Elizabeth II greeted President Joe Biden and the first lady at her home in Windsor Castle where they were greeted with an official Guard of Honor military parade giving a royal salute and played the American national anthem. The queen has hosted four other American presidents at Windsor Castle in recent years, including former- President Donald Trump in 2018, who shocked press and palace pundits when he breached royal protocol by walking ahead of the queen , at times blocking her view and giving her his back.

The Bidens had touched down a mere 15 minutes earlier on Marine One, having boarded the chopper at London’s Heathrow airport, whence they had flown from the G7 summit in Cornwall in Airforce One. They were treated to a selection of American-themed musical performances by the band of the Grenadier Guards including John Philip Sousa’s The Stars and Stripes Forever, while they waited the appropriate moment to enter the quadrangle.

President Biden and first lady Jill Biden met Britain's Queen Elizabeth II for tea at Windsor Castle following their departure from the Group of Seven summit of world leaders on Sunday, making Mr. Biden the 13th sitting president to meet with the Britain's 95-year-old monarch. On Friday, the queen attended a reception with the Bidens as well as the other G-7 leaders and their spouses. Also attending the reception was Charles, his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and her grandson Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Also on Friday, Jill Biden and Catherine toured Connor

Joe Biden revealed the Queen had asked him about his Russian and Chinese counterparts, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, during their 45-minute talk over tea at Windsor Castle , in the aftermath of the G7 summit on Sunday. It was an exceptionally rare, if limited, insight into political discussions Biden , accompanied by his wife, Jill , was the 13th holder of the office to have met Elizabeth II. His meeting in the castle in Berkshire came after he inspected a ceremonial guard of honour in the building’s central quadrangle. No details of their discussion was disclosed by the palace, although a picture was taken

On both those occasions, there were street protests against Trump; by comparison, today’s crowds in Windsor seemed entirely supportive of the new president, although as all the activity was taking place inside the curtain wall of Britain’s most picturesque castle, there was little for them to see other than Marine One flying overhead.

The Guard of Honor to salute the Bidens was assembled of the Queen’s Company First Battalion Grenadier Guards. They gave a traditional royal salute and the American national anthem was also played.

Biden wore a dark suit and the First Lady wore a lavender blue jacket and dress suit.

Biden, accompanied by senior British military officers, was then invited to inspect the Guard of Honor, a tradition going back to the middle ages. As he toured the troops, to the accompaniment of The Star Spangled Banner, Her Majesty leaned towards Dr. Biden and appeared to engage her in small talk.

The first couple arrived arm-in-arm; the president in a dark suit and stripped tie with the first lady wearing a trench coat over a dark dress.

Queen Elizabeth II met President Joe Biden on Sunday amid royal pomp and ceremony at her home at Windsor Castle as Biden wrapped up the Group of Seven summit. The monarch, 95, received the Bidens for tea at her historic residence about 30 miles west of London. They were greeted with an official Guard of Honor military parade, which gave a royal salute and played the U.S. national anthem.

Queen Elizabeth is preparing to meet her 13th serving U.S. President! Early on Thursday, Buckingham Palace confirmed more details about President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr . Jill Biden 's visit to Windsor Castle on Sunday. The Bidens will be welcomed at the dais in the Quadrangle of the castle , and a Guard of Honor formed of the Queen 's Company First Battalion Grenadier Guards will give a royal salute. Three years ago, the Queen welcomed President Donald Trump to Windsor Castle and then retired for tea, just as she will with President Biden .

There then followed an extravagant display of marching and salutes, the Grenadier Guards’ crimson jackets making a vivid contrast to the green sward of the lawn underneath a perfect blue sky.

Sunday’s welcome of the visiting president marked yet another high profile public duty for the queen following the death of her husband, Prince Philip, in April, aged 99. It was actually the third time she had met Joe Biden; she met him at the G7 reception on Friday but they also met in 1982 when he was the Democratic senator for Delaware.

The queen met Harry S. Truman in 1951 before she ascended to the throne and has since then met every president except Lyndon B. Johnson.

After the military formalities were over, the queen and the Bidens entered the cool of the castle for tea. Their conversation will remain private, however a photograph was released of the Bidens in the Grand Corridor at Windsor Castle with the queen.

It is widely expected the president will offer his condolences on the the death of her husband. He wrote to her privately after Philip died, as The Daily Beast has reported, and issued a public statement saying: “From his service during World War II, to his 73 years alongside the Queen, and his entire life in the public eye—Prince Philip gladly dedicated himself to the people of the U.K., the Commonwealth, and to his family.”

Senior courtiers previously told The Daily Beast that the queen’s meeting with Biden could be understood as a statement of her ongoing commitment to her duty, echoing the remarks she made on her 21st birthday (which are given some prominence on the royal family’s website) when she said, in a radio address: “I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.”
