The Head of State visited the United Kingdom for the G7 summit, which took place in Cornwall, and more specifically on Carbis Bay. Arriving at Heathrow Airport in London on June 13, Jill Biden’s husband was confronted by a horde of journalists, as the American magazine People explained.

Before Joe Biden, what did Donald Trump say about Elizabeth II?
Touching confidences, tinged with humor, which will undoubtedly please those around Her Majesty Elizabeth II, unlike those Donald Trump was able to share during his own visit in 2019. The real estate mogul – which would not rule out a return to the political scene – shocked those close to the 95-year-old monarch by confiding in their reunion. “We have such a great relationship, and we were laughing and having fun. Her relatives said she hadn’t had so much fun in 25 years. Then I was criticized for saying we were ‘fun too,’ recalled the husband of Melania Trump to CNN. A year earlier, it was a series of breaches of protocol that ulcerated members of the British court. Donald Trump had notably turned his back on His Majesty while walking in front of her. A misstep interpreted as “a deadly insult.”
