Prince William and Kate Middleton do not let the COVID-19 pandemic prevent them from performing their royal functions. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge surprised schoolchildren in the north of England this week with one of their first royal engagements via video calls on the Zoom app.
William and Kate sat side by side at Anmer Hall in Norfolk while chatting with staff at the Casterton Primary Academy in Burnley, Lancashire. They also spoke to students who are children of essential workers – health and emergency workers – who were cared for by staff.Prince William and Kate Middleton use video calls to carry out their royal duties at home.
“Well done, honestly, to you and everyone who is there during this time. It should be such a relief for all parents who are key workers to know that normalcy is there for their children – they have the structure and they have a safe place for them, so really great for you all, ”said said Kate.
William thanked the staff for “getting everything done” and asked them to pass on the many messages of support to the rest of the staff and volunteers who “do a great job”.
During the call, William and Kate were able to see all of the children’s arts and crafts projects for Easter, and the Duke of Cambridge revealed that they would be eating “a lot of chocolate” over the holiday weekend. Kate added that William is already eating all of his Easter candy.
