Ahead of the Queen and Biden’s historic meeting we look back at all the presidents she’s met

THE Queen is to host Joe Biden at Windsor Castle — making him the 13th US President to meet her.

Mr Biden and First Lady Jill will see the monarch next Sunday when they are in Britain for the G7 Summit.

The Queen was just Princess Elizabeth when she met her first president, Harry Truman, at the White House in 1951.

His successor, Dwight Eisenhower, saw her twice, before John F Kennedy came to Buckingham Palace for a banquet.

She never met Lyndon B Johnson — though her sister Margaret did on her US tour in 1965.

She has seen every president since — Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

ROYAL PROTOCOL

Trump broke royal protocol on several occasions, including forcing the Queen to wait for 15 minutes.

Mr Biden, 78, and wife Jill, 70, will be in Cornwall next weekend — his first overseas trip as president.

He is a long-time pal of Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, and appeared with them for a Covid vaccine fundraiser last month.

However Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said Harry is unlikely to be mentioned amid the ongoing Megxit feud.

She said: “Joe Biden appears to be a well-mannered man and won’t mention Harry as it would be quite rude.

“It is likely to be tea at ­Windsor Castle and very civil.”

Buckingham Palace said: “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.”
