Truth : Joe Biden Did Not Insult Britain With Coronation Absence!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Donald Trump, and spread by MAGA conservatives, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : US Presidents Have Never Gone To Coronations
First, let me just point out that no sitting US president has ever attended a British coronation since the country gained its independence in 1776.
Before the reign of Queen Victoria, the US-UK relationship was adversarial because of the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Even when relations improved, President Martin Van Buren did not attend when Queen Victoria ascended the throne.
Fact #2 : It Was Not Practical To Attend In The Past
In President Van Buren’s case, it was not practical for him to attend Queen Victoria’s coronation because it was simply too troublesome to travel such a long distance for the ceremony.
Even when it came to the coronation of King George VI in 1937, it was not practical for President Franklin D. Roosevelt to attend.
It only became somewhat practical to travel for such ceremonies when transatlantic air travel started in 1939.
Fact #3 : US Presidents Always Send Representatives
Despite cultivating a relationship during World War 2, President Dwight Eisenhower also chose to keep to tradition, and did not attend the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
Instead, he sent three representatives instead – California governor Earl Warren, former Secretary of State George Marshall, and the chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff Omar Bradley.
For the coronation of King Charles III, President Biden chose to send his wife, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, and one of his granddaughters, Finnegan Biden, to represent him and the United States.

Fact #4 : Joe Biden Congratulated King Charles In Advance
On April 4, 2023, President Joe Biden congratulated King Charles on his upcoming Coronation, and informed him that he would be sending his wife, First Lady Jill Biden to attend on behalf of the United States.
He also conveyed his desire to meet with King Charles in the United Kingdom at a future date.
Fact #5 : King Charles Invited Biden For A State Visit
On April 5, 2023, King Charles invited President Joe Biden to the United Kingdom for a state visit, which Biden accepted.
That invitation came during a conversation between King Charles and President Biden the day earlier. White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre said:
She also said that a specific date or timeline for the state visit has not been determined, but that it would be “in the near future”.

Fact #6 : Donald Trump Wasn’t Even Invited
Donald Trump is likely to be annoyed and upset that King Charles did not even invite him to the Coronation. That could explain his need to keep criticising Biden for not attending, even though he was formally invited.
Trump is often outspoken about his “closeness” to Queen Elizabeth II, and other world leaders and celebrities in general. To be snubbed for such a major event must have been a real dent to his considerable ego.
