First Lady Jill Biden put on a very elegant display in a blue ensemble as she arrived at Westminster Abbey today to represent her husband President Joe at the coronation of King Charles – alongside her 24-year-old daughter and official plus one, Finnegan.

The 71-year-old donned a cornflower blue skirt suit for the historic occasion, accessorizing the look with a pair of matching gloves, nude heels and clutch, and a blue bow in her hair.

Meanwhile her granddaughter – who is the daughter of President Biden’s scandal-ridden son Hunter – opted for a pale yellow cape dress, pairing the design with a matching floral headband, silk heels, and a small handbag.

The two women are representing the President at the coronation after Jill’s husband Joe declined his invitation from Charles, telling MSNBC last night that he was unable to attend because he has ‘a lot going on’.

No US President has ever attended a British coronation – and Jill and Finnegan are understood to be the first immediate family members of a sitting President to attend the event.

Finnegan and Jill were seen being escorted into Westminster Abbey, where they took their seats several rows back behind the representatives from Serbia, Slovakia, and Macedonia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The First Lady and her grandchild – with whom she is known to enjoy a very close relationship – were seated alongside Ukrainian First Lady Olena Zelenska, whom they were seen chatting with at a lavish reception at Buckingham Palace last night.

Jill and Finnegan have attended several events since their arrival in the UK – with the East Wing confirming on Thursday that the First Lady would be joined by her granddaughter in the absence of her husband, who opted out of the coronation.

During an interview on MSNBC last night, the President said of his absence at the coronation: ‘I told [King Charles] I couldn’t be there because I have this going on.’

He added that he told the King that he would be in the UK during the summer during the NATO conference, saying ‘He’s a good acquaintance and we’ve worked together on environmental issues.’

Biden’s likely opponent in 2024, ex-President Donald Trump, earlier expressed his disgust that the president was not making the trip across the pond.

‘Certainly, he should be here as our representative of our country. I was very surprised, I think it’s very disrespectful for him not to be here,’ the former Apprentice host told GB News. (Daily Mail)
