The meeting coincides with the end of Mr Biden's visit to Britain for the G7 summit of leaders from the world's biggest economies.

Mr Biden will be the 12th serving US president the Queen has met as monarch.

The Queen, 95, first met a serving US president, Harry S Truman, as Princess Elizabeth in 1951.

She has since met all elected US leaders during her 69 years on the throne, except for Lyndon B Johnson.

President Biden will also meet Prime Minister Boris Johnson on 10 June "to affirm the enduring strength of the special relationship between the United States and

the United Kingdom", the White House said.

The G7 gathering in Cornwall will be Mr Biden's first foreign engagement in person, as the coronavirus pandemic has prevented him from travelling outside of the US since taking up his post in the Oval Office.

Buckingham Palace said in a short statement: "The Queen will meet the President of the United States of America and First Lady Jill Biden at Windsor Castle on Sunday 13 June 2021."
