He May 6 is the date set for the king coronation Charles III, while the preparations advance with an intense rhythm, the list of the two thousand expected guests begins to take shape.

According to a note sent to Buckingham Palace by White House, Biden has other commitments that overlap with that date. One immediately wonders what other event can compete with the Coronation of the King of England, to whom the United States is linked by historical and cultural ties.

What is certain is that, if the justified absence is confirmed, high-level figures affirm in Washington that would be the First Ladywho will attend on behalf of the president.

A trip that would follow shortly after the one already planned on April 10 to participate in the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of the Peace of Good Friday in Northern Ireland.
If confirmed, Biden would join the list of well-known characters who have “snubbed” the coronation (and related acts) of Carlos: among them are the various singers: Adele, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Robbie Williams, Harry Styles and the Spice Girls that they would have declined the invitation to perform on May 7 at the concert to be held at the Windsor Castle.
