President Biden and the First Lady met the Queen of the United Kingdom this weekend to break bread and remember high quality H20 – and by that… we mean tea and cookies.
Joe and Jill swung by Windsor Castle on Sunday for a late afternoon powwow with Queen elizabeth ii – who was ready and waiting for them with all her honor guard standing as well… dressed in their red coats and big hats and still standing just as erect.
When the sir and madam stopped … they came out and greeted QE2 on a platform she was relaxing on – then stood as the team began to play “The Star-Spangled Banner,” which the Bidens had to say. greeted with hand on greetings from the heart. Liz didn’t, however.
Anyway, after the US national anthem was played – Joe undertook what is considered a tradition when world leaders visit… and that would be inspecting the troops. He took a walk, then returned with Jill and the Queen, before going inside for tea time.
One last thing we should note here… Joe remembered to do something his predecessor sadly forgot to do, and that would be – do NOT get ahead of Her Majesty. Literally.
You may remember … when Asset went to face the woman herself a bit in 2018 – doing a lot of what Biden does today – he pulled a major snafu and walked in front of the Queen at one point, which is a no- not major – and seen as a bad label.
Watch the clip towards the end when they start to come in… JB has been paying attention to his manners here, and let Liz take the lead, no matter how long it takes.
Ah, diplomatic relations … good again.
