President Joe Biden will be one of the only world leaders allowed to use his helicopter in London when he arrives for the Queen’s funeral, The Post has confirmed.
The president and first lady Jill Biden arrived in the UK last night. They were expected to join King Charles, Queen Consort Camilla, alongside other members of the royal family and world leaders at a reception at Buckingham Palace.
Joe and Jill arrived at Stansted Airport on Air Force One.
The Post is told that the President will be guarded by hundreds of security agents, with 100 alone focused on safeguarding the helicopter, which is dubbed ‘Marine One’ when Biden is on board.
However, as you can see from the video the number of people who greeted him is embarrassing!
Just two people were waiting to greet POTUS.
One of them, as we can confirm from the embassy’s site, is the U.S. ambassador in the UK:
The only representative from the UK was the Lord Lieutenant of Essex. We couldn’t identify the third one.
Biden got three people to welcome him but had a huge motorcade arranged for him!
The US President and his wife, Jill, were then seen being whisked away in their presidential car dubbed ‘The Beast’.
With all that security he also decided to use his “privilege” to do something that regular people aren’t allowed to:

Besides the embarrassment of his welcoming party Biden got grilled for his huge line of cars and was called a hypocrite:
That’s a big crew of nursing assistants.

US Embassy sources this week told The I newspaper that Biden will travel with “his usual security detail,” which is made up of around 400 Secret Service officers, and will make him the most highly guarded person at the state funeral on Monday.
Foreign leaders were asked to fly to the UK by commercial flights and were told they would be taken to the funeral by escorted shuttle buses due to the tight security and road restrictions.
However, Biden arrived on Air Force One and will be allowed to ride in the 6,800kg bulletproof presidential limousine, nicknamed “The Beast,” to the funeral at Westminster Abbey for security reasons. “The Beast” will be flown over in a separate military cargo plane.
