Jill Biden meets with Kate Middleton in England this week

Biden and Kate will focus on children and education during their first-ever meeting on Friday, a White House official told CNN. The two women will attend a round table on youth education and tour a school in Cornwall.

Another White House official said the event would include a trip to a classroom and a trip outside to show and tell the children how to care for rabbits. The two women will also hold a roundtable with early childhood experts from the United States over Zoom.

Kate and her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, have in recent years taken on a major public role in the UK, fighting for causes including mental health, the general well-being of children, the importance of sport and the visual arts, and the importance of of getting the Covid-1
9 vaccine. She posted a picture of herself on her social media accounts receiving her first dose on May 29th.

The bite has also taken several recent trips to different parts of the United States to encourage people to get vaccinated. The meeting in England between Biden and the Duchess has been going on for the last few weeks, a White House official tells CNN.

The first lady accompanies President Joe Biden to his first group at a seven-day summit in Cornwall, England, from Friday to Sunday. Bidens arrived in England on Wednesday. On Thursday, the president and first lady met with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie Johnson. Jill Biden and Carrie Johnson had a separate meeting over tea and a tour of St. Michael’s Mount off the coast of Cornwall.

In a statement to CNN, East Wing notes in addition to acting as a supporting role for the president, Jill Biden’s first trip abroad as first lady includes several solo events, such as the one with Kate.

“First Lady has an independent schedule for herself during the G7,” said Jill Biden’s press secretary Michael LaRosa. “At Royal Air Force Base Mildenhall on Wednesday, she spoke about the importance of supporting military families. She also hosted a roundtable with US military spouses focused on the well-being and emotional health of service members and their families.”

The president and first lady will also meet Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle on Sunday.
It will be the Queen’s first major encounter with a world leader since her husband’s Prince Philip fell in April and comes after a year in which most of her personal engagements were postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
