US President Joe Biden and Queen Elizabeth II are 17 years old. Now he has compared the 95-year-old with his mother.

“We had a long talk.

She was very generous.

I don't think she would be offended - but she reminded me of my mother, in terms of her looks and her generosity, 'said Biden on Sunday in London after a reception at the monarch in Windsor, which was also attended by First Lady Jill Biden .

Biden replied in the affirmative when asked by a reporter whether he had invited the Queen to Washington.

He also said that he had told the Queen that the White House would fit in the courtyard of her castle.

She then asked what it was like to be in the White House.

He replied that it was excellent.

In her long reign since 1952, the Queen has seen many US presidents come and go.

She met most of them in either the US or the UK.

Biden is already number 13 - and the first to see her without her husband Prince Philip, who recently died at the age of 99.

The US president flew on to Brussels on Sunday evening.

In the Belgian capital, the US president will take part in the NATO summit on Monday.
