Like any visitor to Cornwall you know, changing weather has a habit of screwing up the best plans.
A drizzly and foggy Thursday in the far south west of Britain meant Joe Biden and … Boris Johnson they had to change venue for their talks before the G7 summit.
The two chiefs would meet at beautiful St Michael’s Mount, a castle on a tidal island off the south coast.
Reports suggested that their wives, Jill Biden and Carrie Johnson, should have toured the island as leaders discussed issues like Brexit, the coronavirus pandemic and climate change.
A source n. 10 confirmed that the visit was “unfortunately due to the weather”.
The weather forecast for the area suggests there was a high probability of rain around lunchtime, with a moderate breeze.
The leaders will instead meet in Carbis Bay, the main venue of the summit on Friday.
