Family Biden pays respect to Queen Elizabeth II ahead of funeral
Queen Elizabeth’s Story Is More Tragic Than People Know
Queen Elizabeth’s Story Is More Tragic Than People KnowMost of us know her simply as “The Queen,” but she was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor on April 21, 1926. At the time of her birth, her paternal grandfather George V was king, and her father was his second son. This meant that she was third in line for the throne—and unlikely to ever come close to it. Well, fate had something different in mind.
President Joe Biden on Sunday paid his respects to Queen Elizabeth II by visiting her coffin at Westminster Hall in London.
Biden was joined by first lady Jill Biden, and signed a book of condolences for the queen, who died Sept. 8 at age 96.
