Queen Elizabeth Attends Her First Official Birthday Parade as a Widow”

US President Joe Biden said he was "satisfied" with the agreed G7 communique's points on China, and once again called for the country to be transparent on Covid-19, telling reporters it's important to know whether the virus came from animal or "whether it was an experiment gone awry".

Mr Biden has a meeting with Mr Putin next week.

However, it appears that the faux pas by the USA president didn't affect the meeting as the monarch seemed happy when she greeted Joe Biden and First Lady Jill.

"I said I wish we could stay longer, maybe we could hold the cars up a minute, and stuff".

"She wanted to know what the two leaders that I - the one I'm about to meet with, Mr Putin, and she wanted to know about Xi Jinping", the president said. "Anyway, she was very gracious".

Her Majesty, 95, looked radiant in the smart ensemble - a departure from her usual bright colour palette - which she teamed with her usual black Launer handbag and black patent leather shoes with silver buckles.

It generally is frowned upon for anyone to reveal the contents of their private talks with the Queen.

Queen Elizabeth II even went horseback riding with President Ronald Reagan, when in 1982 he became the first USA president to stay overnight at Windsor Castle.

They greeted the Queen on a dais in Windsor's quadrangle before a Guard of Honour gave a royal salute as the United States national anthem was played.

Ahead of that, Jill Biden said they had been looking forward to meeting the queen and that it was an exciting part of the visit for them.

He replied: "Yes, we did".

When the monarch met George W Bush at Windsor, they enjoyed a traditional afternoon tea, with sandwiches and cakes, in the White Drawing Room. Some of the soldiers had been involved in the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh, the queen's husband of 78 years who died just weeks short of his 100th birthday. "We haven't met her yet".

The Bidens travelled to the Berkshire royal residence on Marine One after attending the G7 summit in Cornwall.

Her Majesty has met all but Lyndon Johnson.

Her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla travelled to the USA in 2015 on her behalf and met with Biden when he was Vice President.

It was due to last around half-an-hour, but overran by nearly 20 minutes.

The president was then led across the grass for an inspection of the Guard of Honour.
