King Charles Leads A Confused Biden Around Windsor Castle In Embarrassing Video

President Joe Biden called in on King Charles III at Windsor Castle on Monday on his way to this week’s NATO summit, being treated to tea and talk on climate change.

The U.S. leader was met with a parade and band at Windsor Castle on Monday afternoon, the 950-year-old fortress which is a British Royal residence and the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world. The Band of the Welsh Guards played the Star Spangled Banner and Biden inspected the troops with King Charles III.

Biden appeared hypnotized for a moment when he received a traditional sword salute presenting of arms from an officer of the Guards at the end of one of the lines of soldiers in the guard of honour, leaving Britain’s King Charles having to work to recapture the President’s attention. Appearing disoriented, or even consciously disregarding Charles III, Biden appeared to be trying to engage the guardsman in conversation.


After a moment’s gesticulation and spoken remarks, the King appeared able to get the President moving in the right direction once again. In a departure of protocol, after being chaperoned away, President Biden threw his arm around King Charles’ back.



The President and King then took tea inside, before meeting with a group of politicians and business leaders including John Kerry and the UK’s Net Zero minister Grant Shapps to talk about climate change. While Biden cultivated disputation over a possible snub by missing King Charles’ coronation earlier this year, the pair have met several times before, including at the Cop26 climate forum.

While Biden enjoyed a formal welcome with honour guard, his visit to the United Kingdom was not a full state visit, which would have included a greater degree of formality, as well as a state banquet. 12 U.S. Presidents have made presidential visits to the United Kingdom, but just three of those have made state visits: George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump.
