The US president, Joe Biden, and his wife, Jill, had to wait rather than being ushered immediately to their seats on their arrival at Westminster Abbey for the Queen's funeral. In order not to disrupt the finely tuned choreography, the first couple stood inside the entrance as a procession of George and Victoria Cross-holders went ahead of them in the nave of the abbey. Biden had been given a dispensation to make his journey to the abbey in the 'the Beast', a heavily armoured limousine used by US presidents for security reasons, rather than be bussed to the abbey with the other heads of state and government.
