THE QUEEN will meet US President Joe Biden at the G7 summit in Cornwall ahead of hosting him and First Lady Jill Biden at Windsor Castle on Sunday.
Queen Elizabeth II, 95, will be joined by Prince Charles, 72, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 73, Prince William, 38, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 39, at a special reception for G7 leaders in Cornwall on Friday. The evening event will be the first time the Queen meets US President Joe Biden and his wife Jill before hosting them for tea at Windsor Castle on Sunday.
