Analysis: A moment the Bidens will never forget

By Rhiannon Mills, royal correspondent

It's not the first time Marine One has landed on the lawns at Windsor, but for the Bidens, as the Queen waited for them in the quadrangle, they knew they were flying in for a moment they would never forget.

As they stepped out of the car, President Biden took the First Lady's hand, wanting them to remember this time together. Her Majesty saying hello, seemed to ask if they were OK after their journey, as they made their way up the small number of steps onto the dais to hear their national anthem; Biden behind his sunglasses was beaming with pride.

There appeared to be a few words of advice from the Queen before the president was led by the commanding officer to inspect the guard; his smile rarely fading as he carried out his ceremonial duties, the pageantry cementing the historic nature of this moment for the Queen's 14th American president.

Always welcoming to any of her guests, the 95-year-old monarch seemed particularly chatty during the military march past. After a life of watching these parades no one knows the meaning of it all better than her.

As the military moved on, it was time for probably the most precious part of this meeting, a private conversation inside the castle, and after a day in the heat a much-needed cup of tea. Later on President Biden would be surprisingly indiscreet about their meeting, I think we didn't expect it from him after President Trump had been rather loose-lipped after his tea with the Queen. But Mr Biden couldn't resist sharing that the monarch had asked about the Chinese president, Vladimir Putin and saying that she reminded him of his mother.

This was not a state visit, with the banquet and carriages down the Mall, but during COVID times a cup of tea with the Queen is the ultimate diplomatic pat on the back, and a reminder of how important the subtlety of soft power can be when it comes to keeping international friends onboard.

The Queen provides that quiet diplomacy in spades, described as a truly unique asset by diplomats. But the president also had a lot to gain from this meeting. Like his predecessors he knows how well the pictures with Her Majesty will play back home in America, for an audience who can't get enough of the British royal family.

You could argue these will be the stand out images of Biden's first ever overseas trip, with many American's feeling that the Royal Family epitomises the UK more than the prime minister.

With the Bidens leaving slightly later than expected, there was a sense of friendships forged. And as Marine One flew away from Windsor Castle it was hard to think of a more spectacular setting for the president to say farewell to the UK. For now at least.
