President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden are currently in the U.K. for the upcoming G-7 summit and recently reaffirmed the “special relationship” between the American and British governments by spending time with their across-the-pond counterparts, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife, Carrie Johnson. Also on the itinerary: time with the royal family—yes, Jill was hanging out with Kate Middleton.

The pair met up on the morning of Friday, June 11, for a visit to the Connor Downs Academy preschool in Cornwall. Early childhood is a particular passion of of Middleton’s; Jill Biden, of course, is a former teacher, a community college educator, and the holder of a doctorate in education. People reports that the two women participated in a lesson with the young students and a roundtable discussion about early education.

“Welcome to the UK, @FLOTUS,” the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrote via their official Twitter account. “It was great to host Dr. Jill Biden and experts from the UK and the United States for a discussion on the importance of early childhood on lifelong outcomes, on the first day of the #G7 Summit.”

While speaking to NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell, Middleton also briefly addressed the news that her niece, Lilibet Diana, had been born last week, calling the arrival “the very best—I can’t wait to meet her!”

Her comments echo those of Prince Charles, who spoke at a Mini factory last week about sustainability and mentioned that the birth of his fifth grandchild was “such happy news.”

Middleton’s bright outfit is by Alexander McQueen, which we can only assume means Dr. Biden wore something by Alexander McPresident. Get it? No? Listen, I’m trying.

The two women also fed the school’s pet rabbits together. Lucky bunnies!

This is just the first of a few events the Biden and Windsor families will take part in together. People reports that Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince William, and Duchess Catherine will all be present at a reception where they will welcome President Biden and other world leaders. This marks the first time President Biden will meet the long-reigning monarch, who has met 12 presidents before him. So…big day for Joe, normal afternoon for Liz.
