Jill Biden Wears Trench Coat & Pumps to Meet Queen Elizabeth at G7 Summit Reception

Our first lady has expressed her excitement about meeting Queen Elizabeth, and today that moment finally happened. Dr. Jill Biden had a conversation with the queen while at a reception for the G7 leaders at the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK during the G7 summit.

For the occasion, the educator had on a Gabriela Hearst trench coat over a graphic print black dress. Completing the look was a pair of navy blue pointy pumps on a 4-inch stiletto heel. She accessorized with Larroude’s Erin clutch. Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth wore a bright floral dress with round-toe black shoes.
