Joe Biden will be welcomed to Windsor by the Queen with tea and a Guard of Honour.

The Queen will greet US President Joe Biden with a Guard of Honour upon his arrival in Windsor, followed by tea with the monarch at the castle.

On Sunday, the Queen will host Jill Biden, the First Lady of the United States, at her Berkshire royal estate.

On Thursday, Buckingham Palace provided additional information regarding the visit.

The meticulously prepared arrangements recall Donald Trump’s warm reception in Windsor in 2018, when the controversial then-US president paid a visit to the Queen.

Mr. Trump and the Queen shared afternoon tea in the castle’s Oak Room, which lasted longer than intended.

It was supposed to last around half an hour, but it went on for over 20 minutes longer.

In 2008, when then-US President George W. Bush visited Windsor for tea with the monarch, he dined in the White Drawing Room on a classic English afternoon buffet of tea, light sandwiches, and cakes.

At the dais in the castle’s square, the Queen will meet Mr. and Dr. Biden.

A Royal Salute will be given by The Queen’s Company First Battalion Grenadier Guards, and the US national song will be played.

Mr Biden will next examine the Honour Guard with Major James Taylor, the Officer Commanding the Guard of Honour, and Major General Christopher Ghika, before returning to the dais to watch the military march-past with the Queen and First Lady.

In 2018, the Queen joined Donald Trump to Windsor to view the Guard of Honour.

Before his retirement in 2017, the late Duke of Edinburgh was in charge of escorting a visiting head of state to see the troops.

From Harry S Truman to Joe Biden, the Queen has had 14 US presidents throughout her 69-year reign.

Mr. Biden, who is in the UK for the G7 conference, will be the 13th American president to visit the queen, with Lyndon B Johnson being the only one who has yet to do so.
