President Biden and first lady Jill Biden are set to meet with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle during his trip to Europe next month for the G-7 summit, the palace said Thursday.
“The Queen will meet the President of the United States of America and First Lady Jill Biden at Windsor Castle on Sunday, 13th June 2021,” the official Twitter account for the Royal Family posted Thursday.
The visit comes as part of Biden’s first overseas trip to the United Kingdom for the G-7 Summit and Belgium for the NATO Summit in June.

Biden will attend the annual G7 Summit with other world leaders in Cornwall, U.K., between June 11 and June 13, the White House said in April.
When asked whether the president would be visiting Queen Elizabeth, White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded, “Who wouldn’t want to meet the Queen?”
