No U.S. president in history has attended the coronation of the British monarch. However, the Telegraph reports that Biden plans to send a representative for the occasion, either his wife Jill Biden or vice president Kamala Harris.

The ceremony has been shrunk at the King’s request – whereas his mother received more than 8000 guests at her coronation in 1953, only 2000 will be invited to attend his ceremony in person.

Other expected heads of state include those of France, Spain, Ireland, Japan and Monaco.

Meanwhile, the King’s second son, Prince Harry, has yet to confirm his attendance at the ceremony. The date of the coronation coincides with the 4th birthday of his son Archie.
