Kate Middleton spends time with Jill Biden, unlike Melania Trump


First lady Jill Biden and Kate Middleton looked like the best of friends, bonding over their shared interests in children and education during at an appearance together Friday at an elementary school in Cornwall, England, while President Joe Biden attends the nearby G7 summit.

Biden and the Duchess of Cambridge also looked as though they color-coordinated their outfits — or that they had their assistants make sure their outfits would be complementary. Biden wore a dark pink blazer over a white dress, while the duchess wore a fuchsia Alexander McQueen dress. Both women wore nude heels.

The friendly photos of Kate and Jill Biden, a lifelong educator, chatting easily together, meeting with the school’s young students and feeding carrots to the children’s rabbits, present a contrast to the last time the duchess was in the presence of an American first lady, Melania Trump — and how awkward it all seemed.

In June 2019, President Donald Trump and his family visited the U.K. for a three-day state visit, but during that visit, the only time Kate might have interacted with Melania Trump was at a state banquet at Buckingham Palace, and there is a notable absence of photos showing the royal couple with this particular president and first lady.

Prince William, as future king, and Kate attended the state banquet, with the duchess looking regal in a white Alexander McQueen gown, tiara and sapphire and diamond earrings.

William and Kate were not specifically photographed with America’s controversial president or his first lady. There only is video of them following the queen, Trump and Melania Trump, escorted by Prince Charles, into the banquet. The duty of posing for photos with Donald and Melania Trump was left to the queen and to heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla.

Meanwhile, Kate and William didn’t shy away from being photographed multiple times with the Trumps’ predecessors, Barack and Michelle Obama.
