Wearing one of her favourite accessories, the Queen opted to wear her 'Jardine Star Brooch', one she has worn on multiple occasions in the past - including her Christmas speeches and her Diamond Jubilee.

The brooch bears a significance for her meeting with the Bidens - her choice to wear her treasured star brooch could be a subtle nod to the American Star-Spangled Banner. 

Biden, who is in the UK for the G7 summit, was the 13th American leader to meet the monarch, who has met all the former US presidents during her reign with the exception of Lyndon B Johnson.
