To Cornwall, England where the royals have joined world leaders at Carbis Bay for the G7 summit. The Duchess of Cambridge journeyed down south to join Dr. Jill Biden for a day of joint engagements focusing on children’s education, before the first lady meets the Queen at Windsor Castle this weekend. The pair provided a lesson in classroom chic at the Connor Downs Academy, as they discussed the importance of early learning with students and held a roundtable discussion to explore their shared passions.

Kate Middleton, in her element chatting to the youngsters about their current reading material, Greta and the Giants, wore a sleek raspberry McQueen shift dress and carried a nude ladylike top handle bag by LK Bennett. With Biden in a hot-pink blazer and fresh white summer dress, the pair were undoubtedly the G7’s most cheerful double act, bringing sunny vibes to the sea of suits at the summit.

While the Duchess looked polished as per in her seasonal workwear, the doctor has used tailoring to make a statement during her trip to the British coast. To meet Boris and Carrie Johnson, she wore a customized Zadig & Voltaire blazer, with “love” emblazoned across the back in metallic studs, over a polka dot Brandon Maxwell dress. “This is a global conference, [and] we’re trying to bring unity across the globe. I think it’s needed right now,” Jill told members of the press of her diplomatic fashion choice. Kate’s messaging might be more subtle, but she will no doubt use the spotlight of the G7 to champion brilliant British designers, like Sarah Burton at her beloved Alexander McQueen.
