Queen Elizabeth II is preparing to welcome two very important guests: President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden. Windsor Castle will welcome the Bidens on June 13, according to an announcement from Buckingham Palace.

This will mark the queen's first meeting with President Biden. Joe and Jill Biden are going to the United Kingdom for the upcoming G7 summit, marking his first trip abroad since taking office in January. It's also the queen's first major meeting with a world leader since the death of her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

This will not be President Biden's first time meeting a British royal. He previously met Prince Charles during his visit to Washington, D.C., in 2015, when he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration. Barack and Michelle Obama also had a meeting with the queen and Prince Philip during their time in the White House.

Obama wrote a tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh after the news of his passing was released in April. “When we first met His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, he and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II had already been on the world stage for more than half a century—welcoming leaders like Churchill and Kennedy; Mandela and Gorbachev,” he wrote. “As two Americans unaccustomed to palaces and pomp, we didn’t know what to expect.

“We shouldn’t have worried,” Obama continued. “The Queen and Prince Philip immediately put us at ease with their grace and generosity, turning a ceremonial occasion into something far more natural, even comfortable. Prince Philip in particular was kind and warm, with a sharp wit and unfailing good humor. It was our first introduction to the man behind the title, and in the years since, our admiration for him has only grown. We will miss him dearly.”
