President Offers Condolences to King Charles III

He and the first lady will attend the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

President Joe Biden spoke Wednesday with Britain’s King Charles III, the first call between the two since the death of Queen Elizabeth II last week. 

The president expressed his condolences to the new monarch, according to a summary released by the White House, and “conveyed his wish to continue a close relationship with the king.” 

“The president recalled fondly the Queen’s kindness and hospitality, including when she hosted him and the First Lady at Windsor Castle last June,” the White House said. “He also conveyed the great admiration of the American people for the Queen, whose dignity and constancy deepened the enduring friendship and special relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom.” 

The president and First Lady Jill Biden will be joining other world leaders in London on Monday for the queen’s state funeral. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the two heads of state as they nurture the alliance between the nations.
  • For the president and his advisors as relationships are cultivated with other countries.
  • For King Charles as he assumes the role of the reigning British monarch.
