This was always the plan – Queen Elizabeth would send her keenest, most button-covered lynchpin soft-diplomats to greet world leaders in Cornwall for the G7 Summit. That means the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are all in Cornwall. This evening, Prince Charles will host a reception for world leaders, and there’s something called the Eden Project banquet, with a focus on the climate emergency.
The announcement came yesterday that Kate would be sent out on a one-on-one event with Dr. Jill Biden. Keep in mind, while Kate and William technically did events around Donald Trump’s state visit in 2019, the Cambridges took pains to avoid being photographed with both Donald and Melania Trump. Now with the Bidens’ visit, Kate immediately gets sent out with Dr. Jill? There’s a point to it and the point is… still kind of murky. In any case, the details of Kate and Dr. Jill’s event were embargoed, and I don’t really understand why? All they did was visit a local school and talk about “early childhood education.” I can only imagine what Keen Buttons thought of Dr. Biden’s years of higher education and decades spent working with kids and young adults. Kate was probably like “well I did a five question survey!!”
Dr. Jill wore a pink Lagence blazer which ended up coordinating with Kate’s Alexander McQueen dress. Kate’s McQueen just looks like a red version of a dress I know she has in green. It’s pricey too – this retails for £1,125. Lynchpin Buttons hasn’t done a stitch of work since getting her vaccine two weeks ago, and then she turns up at the G7 Summit with a fresh blow-out and a new McQueen? They really do have to bribe her to work, don’t they.
Update: There are lots of videos from Kate and the First Lady’s event, but this one is where Kate is asked about her “new niece” Lilibet Diana. The question was asked by NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell, and you can tell that Kate was not expecting questions from impertinent Americans. She lied with ease though.
