throughout your life, Queen Elizabeth II has always shown his deep involvement in maintaining close relations between the United Kingdom and the United States.

Jane Hartley, the US ambassador to the UK, told CBS Mornings that there was no closer ally to the United States than the Queen herself.

“I think she loved America, and we loved her. When I arrived, it was just before the platinum jubilee, and I was amazed at the number of people on the street who simply adored her. And there was a lot of respect. But there were many, many Americans there,” Hartley said.

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Queen ordered the Star Spangled Banner to be thrown outside Buckingham Palace as a way of showing solidarity with Americans.

Queen Elizabeth II brought together 13 US presidents in office. She met a US president in 1951 when she traveled to the US and met then-President Harry Truman.

Since then, she has ridden horses with then-President Ronald Reagan, watched a Baltimore baseball game with former President George HW Bush and danced with former President Gerald Ford.

The first time President Biden met the Queen was as a US Senator in 1982.

The last time I saw her was in Windsor Castle last year, after the Queen welcomed him and First Lady Jill Biden for tea.

Biden and the First Lady visited the British Embassy in Washington to sign a book of condolences to the Queen. He commented on her death at a fundraiser.

“I had the opportunity to get to know her before she passed away and she was an incredibly decent and gracious woman, and the thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in their grief,” Biden said.

The president said he is likely to attend his next funeral. All flags at US federal and military installations were ordered to fly with half staff in honor of the Queen.
