Twitter Users Predict What the Queen's Meeting with Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Might Look Like
Twitter users shared what they predict the Queen's meeting with Joe Biden and the First Lady might look like after their meeting was announced.
Twitter users weighed in on what the Queen's meeting with Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden might look like as they are expected to meet later this month when the Bidens are in the UK.
This week, the royal family's official Twitter page shared that Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, will meet the new United States President and his wife on Sunday, June 13, 2021, at Windsor Castle.
A photo of the Royal Standards of the United Kingdom flying on the top of Windsor Castle was posted alongside the announcement. The flag has been raised in her honor over her residence or transportation since 1960.
Of course, like any announcement made by the royals, users online shared their opinions about the meeting. One user wrote, "It will be a lovely visit, I'm sure."

Another Twitter user was not so sure, thinking it would be an embarrassment. However, they did not clarify whether it would be the Queen or President Biden who would be embarrassed.
An American Twitter user wrote that this meeting between the President and the Queen would be less embarrassing than the last President and shared a gif of the Queen awkwardly moving around former President Donald Trump.
A British newspaper reported the Palace banned minorities for certain job posts.

This will be the Queen's first major engagement since her husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, passed away. He has accompanied her in meeting all of the other previous US Presidents.
The Queen has met with 12 of the last 13 US Presidents and their First Ladies. In addition, the Queen and her household usually host each President during their presidency and attend a royal event together.

The first president the Queen met was President Harry Truman in 1951. After that, as different presidents were elected, she met them, except Lyndon Johnson, who became interim president when John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
The Bidens will be in England for the G-7 meeting which starts on June 11 in Cornwell. The annual economic summit is the first face-to-face meeting in two years for the leaders of Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, the U.K., and the U.S., who represent the G-7.

Besides preparing for the G-7 meeting and the Bidens' visit later this month, Buckingham Palace has been busy with another controversy after a British newspaper reported the Palace banned minorities for certain job posts until at least the late 60s.
Buckingham Palace released a statement and said, "claims based on a second-hand account of conversations from over 50 years ago should not be used to draw or infer conclusions about modern-day events or operations."
