US President Joe Biden has hailed Queen Elizabeth II, who died today, as “a stateswoman of incomparable dignity and constancy”.
In a statement, Biden said the late Queen was “more than a monarch” because she “embodied an era.”
Elizabeth II “helped make the relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States of America special,” wrote the US President, who expressed a willingness to “continue a close friendship with the King and Queen Consort.”
Also, Barack Obama, former US President from 2009 to 2017, hailed Elizabeth II’s reign, defined by “grace, elegance and an unalterable sense of duty”.
The Queen of England Elizabeth II died today at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, it was announced via the royal family’s Twitter social network.
“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and return to London tomorrow [Friday],” the message added, in a reference to Charles, who will reign with the title King Charles III, and Camilla, his wife.
