Jill Biden and granddaughter Finnegan stun in yellow and blue outfits at King Charles’ coronation
LONDON, UK: Jill Biden looked chic in a blue dress as she was joined by her granddaughter Finnegan Biden for the coronation of King Charles. The first lady of the US has not been accompanied by her husband, Joe, for the ceremony on Saturday, May 6. She will represent her country among several hundred other heads of state, foreign ministers, Nobel Prize winners, and religious representatives.
For the special occasion, Jill chose a blue jacket, which she teamed up with a knee-length pencil skirt and the same-colored gloves. The 71-year-old also wore a small bow hat and a pair of cream heels. The 23-year-old Finnegan went for a long, cream-yellow cape dress, pairing it with a yellow floral hairband and a small vanity case-style bag.

‘I would have been thrilled for any first lady to attend’
As per reports, the grandmother-granddaughter duo chose blue and yellow to show their support for Ukraine since the colors matched the flag of the Eastern European nation, currently under attack by Russia. Lindsay Reynolds, who was Melania Trump's White House chief of staff, said, as per CBS News, “I love seeing the first lady as our representative and I would have been thrilled for any first lady to attend. I don't think it is a slight in any way for the president to not be attending.”
Earlier, the FLOTUS also took to Instagram and posted, “Headed to the U.K. for the Coronation of King Charles III– the first in 70 years! It’s an honor to represent the United States for this historic moment and celebrate the special relationship between our countries.”

Our beautiful First Lady Dr. Jill Biden dressed appropriately for the Coronation. She doesn’t have ‘Really Don’t Care Do You’ written on the back of the coat. Her hair & makeup are on point and it’s a great color. I’m so proud of our First Lady!!!”
