Former British Prime Minister John Major will attend the state funeral of President George H.W. Bush in Washington.
During Major’s career in the British government, he was the foreign secretary and chancellor of the exchequer, a British Cabinet-level position, during Bush’s presidency.
Major worked with Bush during his tenure. His official biography even mentions his partnership with the former president:
“Following Margaret Thatcher, John Major became Prime Minister and attempted to make peace between both party and country in the wake of a divisive decade. He took a leading role, alongside US President George HW Bush, in the first Gulf War, and survived an IRA mortar attack on Number 10 during a Cabinet meeting.”
