The Queen met her 13th US President on Sunday when she received Joe Biden and his wife Jill for tea at Windsor Castle.
The Bidens traveled to Berkshire on Marine One after attending the G7 summit in Cornwall. In a bright pink outfit, the Queen greeted her in the square of the castle, where she has spent much of her time since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Queen and First Lady remained on the dais as Mr Biden walked past the guard. During Donald Trump's 2018 visit, the then President broke royal protocol by going ahead of the Queen during the inspection.
After the inspection was completed on Sunday, the Queen and the Bidens went to the castle for tea.
The Queen had already met the Bidens when she hosted a reception for the G7 leaders and their spouses in Cornwall on Friday evening, where the three-day summit was being held.
"Joe and I are both looking forward to meeting the Queen," Jill Biden said after arriving in the UK on Thursday. "This is an exciting part of the visit for us."
Mr Biden and his wife became the fourth president and fourth first lady to be the Queen in Windsor, after the Trumps in 2018, the Obamas in 2016, President George W. Bush and his wife in 2008, and the Reagans in 1982 received.
During her 69 years on the throne, the longest reign of any English monarch, there were 14 US presidents, all of whom the Queen met but Lyndon Johnson.

Despite the loss of Prince Philip in April, the Queen has shown her determination to continue her official duties as head of state during the high profile G7 meeting.
After receiving the leaders on Friday, where she made a joke during the official photo op, she immediately afterwards provoked more laughter during another official engagement for a local project as she cut a cake with a long ceremonial sword.
On Saturday, she was back in Windsor for a military parade to celebrate her official birthday with Trooping the Color, the first to mark without Prince Philip.
