Joe and Nurse Jill were late on Monday to Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in London.
It must have taken longer than normal with maneuvering the buttons on his shirt and tuxedo.
Joe and Jill were forced to wait to be seated behind the procession of British military heroes.
The Guardian reported:
He may be the world’s most powerful man but the apparent late arrival of the US president, Joe Biden, and his wife, Jill, was not allowed to disrupt the finely tuned choreography of the late Queen’s funeral.
Rather than being ushered immediately to their seats on their arrival at Westminster Abbey, the first couple, aged 79 and 71, had to be gently told they would need to stand and wait as a procession of George and Victoria Cross-holders went ahead of them down the nave of the abbey.
After an awkward period of small talk at the main entrance, as those awarded the highest decorations of military valour went ahead, the Bidens finally followed in the wake of Victoria Cross-holder CSgt Johnson Beharry, pushing the wheelchair of Keith Payne VC, 89.
The US president had been given a dispensation to make his journey to the abbey in “the Beast”, a heavily armoured limousine used by US presidents for security reasons, rather than be bussed to the abbey with the other heads of state and government.
Dr. Jill the Milkmaid did not disappoint with a fancy black ribbon in her hair that she likely made at craft class.
