Kate Middleton hosted U.S. First Lady Dr. Jill Biden this past Friday to speak on her charitable work for both children and parents.
Kate, 39, and Biden, 70, headed off to meet a few kids and teachers at the Connor Downs Academy preschool in the Hayle neighborhood of Cornwall, where the Group of Seven economic summit is being held in the remote southwest corner of England.
The two women share the common interest of supporting teachers and lifting up other educators.
Just after arriving, the two put masks on before they entered. They then sat in mini-chairs to be a part of the lesson with the young students.
The kids “are quite aware of who’s coming and obviously incredibly excited in the way that a 4 or 5 year old can be,” the head of school revealed to reporters.
But when Kate and Biden walked in — the kids were so starstruck, they were silent. “They were scared to death,” the first lady joked as Kate said it was “the quietest class I’ve ever been to.”
In the classroom, Biden and Kate chatted with the kids about what they were reading and what they were drawing.
In addition, the pair also headed outside to feed the school rabbits some snacks – with Biden bringing along a bowl of carrots.
In the Q&A session at the event, Kate also briefly shared that she wishes newborn niece Lilibet Diana, the daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, “I wish her all the very best. I can’t wait to meet her!” she said.
“We haven’t met her yet. I hope that will be soon,” Kate said, adding how they haven’t FaceTimed yet either…
Kate, in an outfit by Alexander McQueen, and Biden then led a roundtable discussion with a number of representatives from the early year’s sector who have been influential in Kate’s work in the particular space.
“It’s a huge honor to have you in the United Kingdom,” Kate shared. “I’m very much looking forward to the conversation.”
Biden then thanked the school for having them and had a special appreciation for “the children – who were so inspiring and so well-behaved,” she laughed.
She added, “Early childhood education is so important to lay the foundations of all of our students.”
