Carbis Bay England, June 11, 2021: Queen Elizabeth II, will play a more prominent role in the Group of Seven summit than expected, meeting with world leaders at a global reception on Friday evening, before hosting President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden on Sunday.
The 95-year-old Queen will be joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Prince William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The layout will be the Eden Project, a local tourist attraction featuring a Dome Biomass flag – which will help reduce the summit’s environmental impact.
Jill Biden and Catherine are also scheduled to meet separately on Friday. When the first lady was asked to meet the queen on Thursday, she said it would be an interesting part of the trip for us. In a tweet on Thursday, the first lady said, “We hold the entire royal family in our hearts today, and wish them peace and tranquility that would have been Prince Philip’s 100th birthday.”
Philip, the queen’s husband and longtime consort, died in April this year. Buckingham Palace had earlier announced that the Queen would meet Biden at Windsor Castle on Sunday after the end of the three-day summit. Elizabeth has met with 12 United States presidents, including Lyndon B. Johnson.
Charles, heir to the throne and an outspoken advocate for the environment, will host a reception for G-7 leaders and business executives on Friday, focused on what he has called a “game-changing opportunity” to establish public-private partnerships that are “absolutely vital if we are to win the battle to combat climate change and biodiversity loss.”
