President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will leave Saturday for the U.K. to attend Monday’s state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II, the White House said Sunday night.
It was unclear if any other U.S. officials would attend the funeral, but CNN reported Sunday that the first couple would travel alone and there would not be a U.S. delegation.
King Charles will reportedly host a reception for visiting world leaders prior to the funeral.
A host of world leaders are expected to attend the queen’s funeral, which will be held at Westminster Abbey in London. Her body will then lay in state for four days, starting Wednesday.
