US President Joe Biden will attend an audience with King Philippe and Queen Mathilde on June 15. He will also speak to Prime Minister Alexander De Croo. Biden will visit Europe in a week, including a G7 and NATO summit and a visit to the British Queen.
On June 15, in the morning, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde receive American President Joe Biden at the Royal Palace in Brussels. Biden will also meet Prime Minister Alexander De Croo that day.
Biden is coming to Europe for a few days a week. The visit to Filip and Mathilde will be his second royal reception because two days before, on June 13, he is allowed to have tea with the British Queen Elizabeth II. That will happen at Windsor Castle, where the Queen has spent most of her time since the start of the corona pandemic. Biden will be the thirteenth US president to meet the Queen during her term.
Before that, Biden will meet British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (on June 10) and travel to Cornwall’s English county. A G7 summit will take place there from 11 to June 13.
A NATO summit is also on the agenda in between the two palace visits on June 14. He will also have a meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the sidelines.
Following his visit to King Philippe, another US-European summit will follow on June 15. Biden will meet with the leaders of the European institutions: Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Council President Charles Michel and Parliament President David Sassoli.
A day later, on June 16, he will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin again. Not in Moscow, but in the Swiss city of Geneva.
