US President Joe Biden was received this Monday by an honor guard at Windsor Castle, on the outskirts of London, to meet with King Charles III, with whom he will discuss the climate crisis.
The president arrived at the castle by helicopter, after a brief meeting this morning with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak at the official residence on Downing Street.
On a relatively sunny day in Windsor, the Welsh Guards played the US anthem in the castle quadrangle before both heads of state reviewed the guard there.
Inside, Biden and the king will speak with participants in a forum seeking to find ways to raise funds to help developing countries address the climate crisis.
Last May, Biden did not travel to London to attend the coronation of Carlos III, who ascended the throne on September 8 on the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The last time the president was in the United Kingdom was last April, on the occasion of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the signing of the peace that ended the conflict in Northern Ireland.
The two met at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2021, where then-Prince Charles had called for urgent action to combat climate change.
Later, Biden and Carlos III met at the G7 meeting (the richest countries in the world) in Cornwall (south-west England), also in 2021.
