President Biden said that Queen Elizabeth II reminded him of his mother after he took tea with the British monarch at Windsor Castle, his last set-piece event on Sunday before concluding the U.K. leg of his overseas trip.

After attending a three-day Group of Seven summit in Carbis Bay, in southwestern England, Biden headed to Windsor Castle, where the queen has spent much of her time since the pandemic began. Biden and first lady Jill Biden arrived on Marine One.

After the meeting with Elizabeth, Biden, 78, told reporters that the 95-year-old monarch reminded him of his mother.

“I don’t think she’d be insulted, but she reminded me of my mother, the look of her and just the generosity,” he said.
