Harry’s pal Jill Biden may ‘broker royal family truce’ when Bidens meet Queen on June 13
There are speculations that Jill Biden, who is Prince Harry’s longtime pal, could become the perfect person to mitigate the rift between the royal family and the Sussexes
This coming Sunday, June 13, US President Joe Biden along with his wife Jill will meet Queen Elizabeth II. And speculations are there that the first lady, who is Prince Harry’s longtime pal, could become the perfect person to mitigate the rift between the royal family and the Sussexes.
Body language expert and author Judi James told Express.co.uk, “As her husband arrives in the UK to try and influence a resolution over what is being called ‘Sausage wars’ might Joe Biden’s wife Jill not be the perfect person to broker a truce in our Royal Family? Jill has been friends with Harry for a long time and her body language has often looked maternal. Meeting with the Queen on Sunday she will be able to see first-hand and be hosted by the woman we in the UK can see here.”

According to reports, the Duke of Sussex and Jill have been friends for several years after they met in May 2012 at a reception for US and British wounded warriors at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Washington. This weekend she and her husband will meet the Queen, which is reportedly not a state visit. It's more a informal courtesy meeting.
Meanwhile, it has been said that the coming weekend is going to be very busy for Her Majesty because, on Saturday, June 12, her official birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle are taking place. The annual Trooping the Color parade will happen just a day before the Bidens' meeting with the Queen. Also, June 10 is the birthday of the late Prince Philip and in his remembrance, the royal family shared photos of the Queen on Twitter as she received a special rose to honor her late husband at Windsor last week. The caption read, “Last week, The Queen was given a Duke of Edinburgh rose to mark what would have been The Duke's 100th birthday. The rose was gifted by @The_RHS, of which The Queen is Patron. Named in The Duke's memory, the rose is planted in the East Terrace Garden, Windsor Castle.”

After analyzing those pictures, James said, “Behind all the pomp, formality and royal status-symbols this is still a woman of ninety-five who looks sweetly like many other grans when she is in a simple floral dress and cardigan like this, smiling bravely as she plants a rose on her late husband’s 100th birthday.”
She continued, “It’s the way that the Queen is still working and still wearing her brave smile with no signals of self-pity that makes body language displays like this so poignant. There are very few families that don’t have dramas and rifts at some time but there often comes a point where perceptions of who is right and who is wrong get swapped for gritted teeth and displays of rapport for the sake of other relatives,” before concluding, “The Queen now has to work through the final years of her reign alone. Her body language here illustrates her ongoing stoicism but surely she deserves the emotional support of a drama-free family that at least appears to be putting on a show of unity and equilibrium?”
