President Biden is expected to attend the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, according to multiple reports.

"Initial preparations" are underway at the White House for Biden to travel to London for the queen's funeral, though he won't announce his plans until "after the palace reveals the arrangements," CNN reports. An official delegation is reportedly expected to join Biden on the trip. NBC News also reported that Biden plans to attend the funeral, and he said Thursday he "probably" would do so.
