Several prominent U.S. leaders carpooled to Atlanta on Tuesday for the memorial service of former first lady Rosalynn Carter, who died on Nov. 19 at age 96.

Former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former first lady Michelle Obama traveled from Washington, D.C. to Marietta, Georgia, aboard Air Force One on Tuesday morning, keeping President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden company before the solemn event.

Upon their arrival at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, the Bidens were seen exiting the plane first, followed by the Clintons and Mrs. Obama. Georgia Sens. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock chatted with the Clintons before joining the motorcade to Emory University, which is hosting the service.

Mrs. Carter's tribute service on Tuesday is expected to draw many political figures, also including former first ladies Melania Trump and Laura Bush, Vice President Kamala Harris, second gentleman Doug Emhoff, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, Georgia first lady Marty Kemp, Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens and numerous Georgia state politicians.

Rosalynn's husband of 77 years, former President Jimmy Carter, will also be in attendance, despite rarely leaving home since entering hospice care more than nine months ago. He celebrated his 99th birthday in October, setting a new record as the longest-lived U.S. president in history.

The service, held at Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church on Emory's campus, begins at 1 p.m. ET.
