Thursday 30 June 2022 11:12 AM Biden tells Boris Johnson about his night at the museum with Hunter's daughters ... trends now
Biden was joined by Maisy, 21, and Finnegan Biden, 22, for dinner the night before at the Prado Museum where they met Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and his wife Begona Gomez.
The leaders swapped notes on their evenings and sounded as if they had chafed at security restrictions on their time in Spanish capital.
As Biden sat down at the NATO summit, Johnson asked: 'How was your evening?'
'Good,' Biden could he heard saying on a TV feed of the meeting. 'Great time with my granddaughters.'
Johnson followed up: 'Get out of the town or what did you do?'
'No... we went to the museum,' said Biden above the hubbub of leaders greeting each other.
Afterwards Biden suggested he wanted to show his granddaughters more of Madrid.
'Then we went back to ... I wanted to take them out,' he said.
'I tried that,' said Johnson. 'It was a disaster.'
Instead, Biden said they went back to the hotel and went to bed.

In the evening, after a day of NATO meetings, Biden looked to be in relaxed mood as he arrived at the world famous Prado . He put his arm around Begona Gomez, a stunning brunette wearing a one shoulder red dress. Biden held her hand and stayed close while he introduced his granddaughters. Gomez smiled and laughed with the president as the two chatted.
Maisy, who wore a white suit jacket and skirt, stayed close to President Biden, who the grandkids refer to as PopPop, holding his hand when he introduced her to the Spanish president.
Finnegan, in a blue dress with a floral pattern, held President Biden's hand as they walked through the art large gallery, stopping to view masterpieces like Velázquez's Las Meninas (The Ladies-in-waiting).
Ahead of the dinner, the Bidens joined other NATO leaders and their spouses in listening to orchestral performance.
Biden then introduced the girls to EU President Ursula von der Leyen, who Biden slung an arm around while he made small talk.
And he introduced them to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who earlier in the day he has praised as 'doing a great job.' Biden also hugged Chef Jose Andres, who was in attendance at the dinner.
