Next week, President Biden is heading to Europe, his first international trip since becoming the President of the United States. 

On Thursday, The Royal Family has confirmed that Queen Elizabeth will host the Bidens on June 13 at Windsor Castle. 

Downing Street said that PM Johnson would use G7 Presidency "To unite the world’s leading democracies in building back better from coronavirus and creating a fairer, greener, more prosperous future." Interestingly, Biden and Johnson have the same "build back better" tagline in their respective political arenas, just one of many overlaps the two leaders share. 

In March this year, Biden and Johnson spoke on the phone. According to the White House, they expressed their shared commitment to combating the COVID-19 pandemic, but that's not all.  "Developing ambitious climate goals" will be on top of Biden's agenda during the G7 Summit. On the call, Biden and Johnson agreed to work closely together on shared foreign policy priorities, including China, Iran as well as maintaining political stability in Northern Ireland.

Following Brexit, the UK government would like to strike a free trade agreement with the United States, but Biden is yet to be pressed on the issue. 

Biden's Meetings in the UK 

June 10 — President Biden will meet British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

June 13— President Biden and Jill Biden will meet Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, UK. Jill Biden will return to the United States following this meeting.
