Jill is currently overseas, tagging along with President Joe Biden for his European business trip.

Of course, she couldn't go across the pond without saying hi to Middleton.

The powerful duo made an appearance together while visiting a UK primary school on Friday.

During their visit, Middleton was asked about Harry and Meghan's newborn daughter, who was born last week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex caused controversy when they announced their second child's name, Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

"I wish her all the very best. I can’t wait to meet her,” Middleton responded when asked about her niece.

"We haven’t met her yet, so hopefully that will be soon," she added.

Middleton's kind words come as the couple copped backlash for using Queen Elizabeth's childhood nickname for their daughter's first name allegedly without her permission.

Harry even fired off a legal threat after BBC claimed their sources said the Queen was in the dark about the name choice.

Using his and Meghan's close friend Omid Scobie to release a statement, the enraged prince insisted his grandmother was the first royal family member the couple called following their child on June 3.

The statement also enforced that Harry and Meghan would have never given their daughter that name without Queen Elizabeth's permission.

He then took things up a notch by threatening legal action against the BBC.

Shooting down the reports, Harry and Meghan's statement read, "The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement, in fact his grandmother was the first family member he called."

"During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honour. Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name," it continued.

Following Harry's explosive clap back statement, BBC amended its report; however, their article still reads that the Queen was not asked by the couple for permission before using the name.
