First Lady Jill Biden met UK royal Kate Middleton for the first time Friday, as she joined her visiting “the quietest classroom” of young students at an English school.

The pair — both matching in different shades of pink — smiled and chatted amiably as they walked into the Connor Downs Academy in Cornwall, donning masks before going in.

“Hello!” the 70-year-old first lady greeted the classroom of five-year-olds, to be met with almost complete silence.

“They’re scared to death,” she said to laughter as the 39-year-old Duchess of Cambridge waved at the children.

Biden remarked how it was the “quietest classroom I’ve ever been to” as the kids’ teacher told the dignitaries, “It’s a pleasure to have you both here in our classroom.”

Biden — whose doctorate is in education — helped the duchess teach the students about landmarks in the G7 meeting, according to The Sun.

The first lady even held up a picture of the White House at one point, before joining the school’s “animal cadets” to help feed rabbits outside, with the first lady happily carrying a bowl of carrots, the paper said.

While it was the first time the pair met, it was the duchess’ third meeting with a first lady, having met Michelle Obama in 2011 and 2016, the paper noted.

Middleton and her husband, Prince William, are due to join his father, Prince Charles, and grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, at a special gathering Friday night with world leaders in the UK for the G7 summit.

It will be the queen’s first such meeting since the coronavirus pandemic started.

Her Majesty is also due to meet the Bidens for tea at Windsor Castle on Sunday after the summit has concluded.

“Joe and I are both looking forward to meeting the queen,” the first lady said on Thursday. “That’s an exciting part of the visit for us.”
