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.
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.
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.”
