President Biden 'to meet Queen Elizabeth' during trip to UK next month

JOE BIDEN is set to meet with Queen Elizabeth II next month during a state visit to the UK.

The details are still being finalised, but it's understood that the US president will meet the British monarch shortly before the G7 summit on June 11, according to CNN.

The trip will be Mr Biden's first overseas visit to any country since he was sworn into office back in January.

The President will then head off to Brussels, Belgium for a NATO summit and a European Union meeting, and then to Geneva, Switzerland for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Biden's administration is yet to make an announcement about the royal visit, but it's understood that his wife Jill will be joining him when he meets the Queen.

Remarkably, Mr Biden will become the 13th US president to meet the 95-year-old Monarch since she ascended the throne in 1953.

Donald Trump famously met the Queen during his state visit to the UK back in 2019.

The former president claimed that the two had an "automatic chemistry" and - in classic Trump fashion - suggested that no one had seen the Queen enjoy a royal engagement more.

The Queen and The Donald really hit it off according to the President

"There are those that say they have never seen the Queen have a better time, a more animated time," Trump said.

"We had a period we were talking solid straight, I didn’t even know who the other people at the table were, never spoke to them. We just had a great time together."

In recent years, the Bidens have befriended Prince Harry, who they met during the Invictus games when Joe was vice-president.

Following Harry and Meghan's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March, where the couple smeared the royal family with a number of damning, and mostly unsubstantiated, accusations, the White House was asked for a response.

Mr Biden's press secretary Jen Psaki praised Markle's "courage."

"For anyone to come forward and speak about their own struggles with mental health and tell their own personal story, that takes courage and that's certainly something the president believes," Psaki replied when asked if Biden had any reaction to the interview.
