Biden and Kate will focus on children and education during their first meeting on Friday, a White House spokesman told CNN. The two women will participate in a roundtable on early childhood education and will tour a school in Cornwall.
Another White House official said the event would include a tour of the classroom and a walk 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 on Zoom.
Biden has also taken several recent trips to various parts of the United States, encouraging people to get vaccinated. A meeting in England between Biden and the Duchess has been in preparation for the past few weeks, a White House official told CNN.
In a statement to CNN, East Wing noted that in addition to supporting the president, Jill Biden’s first trip abroad as first lady included several solo events, such as with Kate.
“The first lady has her own independent schedule during the G7,” said Jill Biden’s spokesman Michael LaRosa. “At the Royal Mildenhall Air Force Base on Wednesday, she spoke about the importance of supporting military families. She also hosted a roundtable with American husbands focused on the well-being and emotional health of military members and their families.”
