Jill Biden, the first lady of the United States, and her granddaughter Finnegan Biden have arrived to King Charles III’s coronation. Jill is attending the coronation on behalf of her husband, US President Joe Biden who recently announced his re-election bid.

In a show of solidarity with the nation being attacked by Russia, Biden and her granddaughter wore clothing that matched the colors of the Ukrainian flag.

She is wearing a knee-length pencil skirt, matching gloves, and a periwinkle blue jacket with an asymmetrical neckline by Ralph Lauren. She is also holding a square clutch purse that matches her shoes, a small bow cap, and a pair of cream heels.

Her granddaughter Finnegan Biden is with her, and she wore a beautiful, cream-yellow cape dress by Markarian. A little vanity case-style bag and a yellow floral hairband finished off her ensemble.

The formal crowning of the head of state has never been attended by a First Lady before Biden’s presence 70 years later. The first lady is honored to represent the United States at this momentous occasion and to celebrate the unique bond between the United States and the United Kingdom, according to a statement from Vanessa Valdivia, her press secretary. Her presence strengthens the bonds we have with one of our closest allies.

On Friday, Biden met for the first time with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s wife, Akshata Murty, at 10 Downing Street.

Jill was not the only first lady in attendance. Olena Zelenska, the first lady of Ukraine, and Denys Shmyhal, the country’s prime minister, were also present. Zelenska was attired in a sage long coat with a coordinating dress underneath. She added pearl earrings, a choker, and a pair of white heels as finishing touches to the ensemble.

Jill and Finnegan are believed to be the first members of a president’s immediate family to attend a British coronation; no US president has ever attended one.
