The dress code for the G7 Summit is pink, according to Jill Biden and Kate Middleton.

The first lady and Duchess of Cambridge had their first meeting at a school in Cornwall, England, on Friday ahead of the summit, which is taking place in Cornwall.

During the visit, both Biden, 70, and Middleton, 39, popped in pink ensembles.

Middleton wore a deep-pink Alexander McQueen midi dress with a coordinating belt. She paired the look with nude heels and a nude purse.

Biden brought the colour to her outfit with a hot-pink blazer with a flower pattern on the inside from L'Agence.

She wore the jacket over a white Akris dress, and she also wore nude heels from Valentino.

The duo discussed the importance of early childhood education during the visit, as Kensington Palace confirmed in a statement.

"The importance of providing adequate support for parents and children alike during early childhood, and the positive impact that this can have across society, is something which Her Royal Highness and The First Lady have both gained an understanding of through their respective work," the statement read.

The first lady and duchess weren't the only ones wearing pink on Friday.

Carrie Johnson, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's wife, wore a hot-pink dress to welcome guests to Cornwall.

The short-sleeve, silk midi dress designed by Roksanda had a V-neckline and cinched waist. Johnson paired it with colourful heels.

Biden met Johnson on Thursday when she and the prime minister welcomed US President Biden and the American first lady to the UK.

The US first lady wore another eye-catching outfit to the meet and greet.

She sported a jacket with "LOVE" written on the back to signify unity. As Insider's Grace Panetta previously reported, the garment draws a strong comparison to Melania Trump's infamous "I really don't care, do u?" jacket.

It was unclear if Johnson, Biden, and Middleton's pink outfits had a greater meaning than a love of a fun colour at the time of writing.

The G7 Summit will go through the weekend, with leaders from around the world gathering to discuss how they can "prevent an international catastrophe like the coronavirus pandemic from ever happening again," as UK officials said, as well as global recovery from the pandemic and climate change.

Biden and the US first lady will meet Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle on Sunday.

Representatives for the first lady, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Johnson did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
