They see life in pink! This Friday, June 11, the heads of state of the G7 countries gathered in Cornwall for two days of intense discussions. But on the other side of the Channel, they were not the only ones working. For her first trip as First Lady, Jill Biden was also not unemployed. Joe Biden’s wife has indeed met Kate Middleton for the very first time. The two women, united by the same commitment, spent a good part of the day at Conor Downs Academy. In a class of young students, the Duchess and the American First Lady participated in a meeting focused on children and education, themes that are particularly dear to them. They then attended a roundtable on early childhood education.
Kate Middleton and Jill Biden then toured the school’s outdoor space, including the pens where rabbits live that the students care for. And for this meeting at the top, the two women were not only on the same wavelength in terms of commitment … but also in terms of clothing! Because they both bet on different shades of pink: the Duchess looked sublime in a short-sleeved raspberry sheath dress while the First Lady chose a bright pink blazer slipped over a white A-line dress. The two polished their outfits with a pair of pale pink pumps that are gorgeous but not necessarily very practical for walking in the gardens. Regardless, Kate Middleton and Jill Biden seemed to have had a great day.
Jill Biden was a teacher
On this visit, Jill Biden – who has been a teacher for decades and is currently a community college professor – was asked about the impact of early childhood education. “It’s very important for the foundation,” she explained. “As a teacher, at the higher levels, if they don’t have a good foundation, they are so late. It’s amazing to see how advanced they are. ”At the end of their school tour, Jill Biden and Kate Middleton each received small bouquets of local flowers, which were handed to them by two of the school’s students. Before leaving the UK, Joe and Jill Biden will also meet Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle. An important visit for Her Majesty since it will be her first since the death of her husband, Prince Philip.
