The United States has sent its first lady, Dr. Jill Biden, to represent the nation at the coronation of King Charles III in London this weekend. This marks the first time a sitting U.S. president has ever attended a British royal coronation.
A Historic Occasion
The pomp and pageantry of the coronation is set to be an extraordinary event, with many dignitaries from around the world attending. The occasion is particularly special for the United Kingdom as it marks the beginning of a new era under their new king.
Accompanying Dr. Biden on her trip to London is her granddaughter Finnegan Biden, making it a truly family affair for the Bidens. President Joe Biden has received some criticism for not attending himself, but he has made it clear that his wife will be representing him and the United States at this historic event.
A Momentous Trip
Dr. Biden arrived in London on Thursday night and was welcomed by children and veterans alike who were eager to meet her and show their support for both her and President Joe Biden’s administration. She also visited 10 Downing Street, where she met with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and discussed issues such as climate change, trade relations between Britain and America, and other topics of mutual interest between both countries.
This momentous trip will no doubt be remembered as one of Dr. Jill Biden’s most memorable moments as first lady of the United States – a true testament to her commitment to public service and international diplomacy during her tenure in office thus far.
