Biden's one-to-one with Queen is his rite of passage on world stage

  Biden's one-to-one with Queen is his rite of passage on world stage When Joe Biden meets the Queen later this month, he will be the 13th American President to do so during her reign. The only US leader she didn't cross paths with was Lyndon B. Johnson. Biden will drop in on her at Windsor Castle, where she's been living during the pandemic, while in the UK for the G7 summit in southwest England.

The meeting marks Biden's first time meeting with the British monarch since he was inaugurated earlier this year, as well as the queen's 13th meeting with a sitting US president.

Biden previously met the queen when he was a US Senator in 1982, the Guardian reported.

The sovereign's presence in the seaside town of Carbis Bay came as a surprise, according to NBC News, as she joined leaders from the US, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and Italy.

The president and First Lady Jill Biden were photographed chatting with Queen Elizabeth at a reception following the first session of the summit which kicked off Friday.

Earlier in the day, the queen joined the world leaders for a "family photo" opportunity where she joked with her compatriots.

Jill Biden to meet the Queen

  Jill Biden to meet the Queen Almost five months into her new job, Jill Biden is still revealing what kind of first lady she wants to be, but one thing is already clear: you can call her "Jill."Biden has insisted at just about every turn that people address her by her first name. She means it -- people actually call her that or, sometimes, "Dr. B." The familiar approachability is part of the Biden narrative, and an aspect of her personality into which she leans hard.

"Are you supposed to look as if you are enjoying yourselves?" she asked, causing the other heads of state to laugh.

The queen joined Prince Charles, Prince William, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, and several other world leaders for a reception later that evening at the Eden Project, a tropical garden.

In Brussels, Biden huddled with nearly a dozen NATO allies and met with the leadership of the European Union.
