No reason was given for the postponement of what will be the leaders' first meeting since Truss won the Conservative leadership contest and became prime minister. It will be a "full bilateral meeting," according to the U.K. statement.

Biden is among the many leaders heading to London ahead of Queen Elizabeth II's state funeral on Monday. Truss is still slated to meet on Sunday with Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Polish President Andrzej Duda.
