The official summit business starts Friday, with the customary formal greeting and a socially distanced group photo before the queen arrives. Biden will be the 13th U.S. leader she's greeted, spanning decades of what's been historically called the "special relationship" between Washington and London. The president has repeatedly used the phrase "special relationship" despite his counterpart's distaste for it. "We affirmed the special relationship — it’s not said lightly — the special relationship between our people," he said Thursday after a meeting that both sides hailed as a success. Last year, while campaigning against then-President Donald Trump, Biden called Johnson the "physical and emotional clone" of Trump.

As part of the agreement, Biden and Johnson will also work to reopen travel between the U.S. and U.K. as soon as possible. U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed the updated Atlantic Charter agreement aboard Air Force One while en route to the U.K. Wednesday for Biden's first trip abroad as president. “There'll be a refresher of the Atlantic Charter, which is now 80 years old,” Sullivan told reporters. And while the Atlantic Charter represents the latest chapter in the "special relationship" between Washington and London, the British government said this week that Johnson doesn't like that term. An aide told The Atlantic in a profile about Johnson that the prime minister thought the phrase appeared needy.
