Biden meets Prince William in Boston after stomping on railroad revolt

President Biden met Prince William in Boston on Friday shortly after signing a bill to overturn complaints from railroad unions about the lack of paid sick days in a contract of employment.

King Charles III’s eldest son, 40, met Biden for the fourth time in 18 months while he was in town for an environmental awards ceremony.

Biden and the Prince of Wales have previously met at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in September, as well as last year at the G7 summit in Cornwall, England, and at an anti-global warming conference in Scotland .

A spokesperson for Prince William said ahead of the meeting: “The Prince of Wales is looking forward to meeting the President at the JFK Library.”

The meeting with William was a late addition to the schedule of Biden’s planned trip to raise funds and participate in a union phone bank for Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) ahead of Tuesday’s runoff election in the state. of Peach.

William is said to have played a key role in accusations of ‘racism’ made against the royal family last year by his biracial sister-in-law Meghan Markle, 41, who is one of the first members of the British royal family with ancestry recent non-European. .

American-born Markle, whose mother is black, told Oprah Winfrey that an unnamed member of the royal family inquired about the likely skin color of her first baby with Prince Harry. The couple’s son, Archie, was born in May 2019.

The skin color remark, reportedly later made by then-Prince of Wales Charles, who became King Charles III in September, contributed to a family rift known as ‘Megxit’ in which Harry and Meagan moved to California and gave up their royal duties.

William reportedly sided with his father and told Harry the couple were “oversensitive”.

The visit with Prince William was a late addition to Biden's schedule, which includes campaigning for Sen. Raphael Warnock in the Georgia Senate runoff.

Markle is said to be networking with Democrats to pursue her desire to run for president.

Charles III, 74, is close to Biden, 80, and the men share a political interest in anti-global warming policies. But Biden was reportedly the target of gossip attributed to the king’s wife, then Duchess Camilla, when he traveled to Scotland last year to attend a conference on climate change.

The royal wife was reportedly offended by Biden’s flatulence at a reception.

“It was long and loud and impossible to ignore,” a source told the Daily Mail at the time. “Camilla hasn’t stopped talking about it.”
