For over seventy years, Queen Elizabeth II played a pivotal role on the global stage. She'd been through plenty of history's most fantastic moments—and had participated in many of them herself. Today, the world mourns her passing—here's what world leaders have said in tribute to her.
Joe Biden and Jill Biden
The First Family of the United States could not have said it better when they claimed that Queen Elizabeth II "defined an era". The couple recounted a poignant memory with the Queen, after the historic tragedy of 9/11 when she reminded the country that "grief is the price we pay for love". With her longevity on the throne, the Queen has met with 14 American presidents and it seems as though President Joe Biden is among her most ardent admirers.
