President Biden and First Lady enjoy tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle

US President Joe Biden has been welcomed by the Queen as he arrived at Windsor Castle.

The president and First Lady Jill Biden flew by helicopter from Cornwall, following the G7 summit, to Windsor on Sunday afternoon for tea with the monarch.

Mr Biden gave a news conference at Newquay Airport before departing for Berkshire, in which he said the US had restored its presence on the world stage after Donald Trump’s term in office.

Mr Biden used his first overseas trip since taking office 120 days ago to connect with leaders from some of the world’s most powerful countries and to closely unite allies on addressing the coronavirus pandemic and China’s trade and labour practices.

“America’s back in the business of leading the world alongside nations who share our most deeply held values,” he said.

“I think we’ve made progress in re-establishing American credibility among our closest friends.”

The president is on an eight-day European trip where he will visit Brussels to attend a NATO summit and will then meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva.
