CARBIS BAY (Reuters) – U.S. First Lady Jill Biden will accompany Kate, Duchess of Cambridge on a trip to a school in Cornwall as senior members of the British royal family attend a series of G7-related events on Friday -Get summit together.
Queen Elizabeth, her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and the eldest son of the heir Prince William and his wife Kate will all later be among the leaders of the world's richest nation, gathering for a three-day gathering in south-west England.
Before that, Biden, the wife of the US president, will go to school with the duchess, where they will meet young children and then talk to some childhood experts, her office said.
The trip is reminiscent of similar school visits by former US first ladies Melania Trump and Michele Obama on their trips to Great Britain, even though they did not have a king to accompany them.
Kate, who has three children with William, has made early childhood a focus of her charitable work.
The UK royals play a prominent role in the G7, with Charles and William also hosting an event between business leaders and world leaders to discuss how the private sector can work with governments to tackle climate change.
"As Head of State, the Queen speaks regularly to world leaders and key diplomatic figures as part of her important role as a figurehead for Britain and the Commonwealth," read a message on the 95-year-old monarch's Twitter account.
The Queen, who will also take part in an event with Kate after the G7 reception, is due to meet the Bidens for tea at Windsor Castle on the Sunday after the summit is over.
"Joe and I are both looking forward to meeting the Queen," said the first lady on Thursday. "This is an exciting part of the visit for us."
