Biden retreated to the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II

American President Joe Biden retreated to the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II in London on Sunday, just like many foreign leaders who came for the British sovereign’s funeral.

In front of the catafalque, Joe Biden, accompanied by the first lady of the USA, Jill Biden, made the sign of the cross and briefly put his hand to his heart.

“I’ve already told you that my mother and my father believed that everyone (…) deserves to be treated with dignity, and that’s exactly what she conveyed,” Biden told the media, signing the condolence book after retiring, alongside by his wife Jill, at the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Hall.

Queen Elizabeth II “had a sense of the notion of service,” said the American president.

“Our hearts go out to the royal family,” Biden added.

The coffin with the lifeless body of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain is on public display for the last day, before the state funeral, on Monday, in the presence of leaders from around the world.

After a final procession, Elizabeth II will be buried privately on Monday in the Chapel of St. George at Windsor Castle, west of London, with her father, King George VI, and her husband, Prince Philip.
