  • President Biden met Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle.
  • The Queen’s meetings are private - so we have no photos or read-out (notes) from the event.

Why It Matters: President Biden is in Europe for a series of important meetings. He concluded a meeting with the G7 in England and next travels to Brussels, Belgium for meetings with NATO before a final meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Context: The Queen started meeting with American presidents at age 25; she’s now 95.

Here’s a look at the Royal Family’s instagram account AND a report on the tea.
