Kate Middleton hosted U.S. First Lady Dr. Jill Biden on Friday, showing the first lady all about her long-standing commitment and work for children and parents.

Kate, 39, and Biden, 70, went to meet youngsters 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 remote southwest corner of England.

It is a shared interest for the two women: Biden is a lifelong educator who champions schooling and the value of teachers. Soon after arriving, the pair paused at the entrance to put on masks before sitting down in mini-chairs and took part in a lesson with the young students. They also headed outside to feed the school rabbits some snacks.

During a 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. (She added that 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 years sector who have been influential in The Duchess’s work in this space.

Biden thanked the school for having them and had a special appreciation for “the children – who were so inspiring and so well-behaved,” she said with a chuckle. She added, “Early childhood education is so important to lay the foundations of all of our students.” Read more: people
