Prince William and Kate spread some Easter cheer to students and teachers at Casterton Primary Academy when they dialed in for a video call on Wednesday.
The school has been kept open for children of key workers and vulnerable students too, to continue attending school amid the lockdown.
During the video call, Kate spilled some details on how her family would be spending Easter in lockdown.
Prince George will likely binge-watch David Attenborough’s Blue Planet, which mom Kate said he’d been “watching lots of”. Prince William added of the weekend that “there’ll be a lot of chocolate being eaten.”
Kate then joked: “You keep eating it.”
Prince William and Kate spend an hour chatting to the delighted students and thanked staff for looking after these children amid coronavirus pandemic.
As Easter is just around the corner, some of the students wore bunny ears; while others showed the royal couple illustrations they drew of their parents.
“To you and everyone who is in during this time, it must be such a relief for all the parents who are key workers to know that their children have the normality and structure and they’ve got a safe place for them to be. So really, really well done and for all of you. I know it’s not easy circumstances, but it’s fantastic,” Kate said.
Prince William then added: “Good northern volunteering spirit going on up there, very good of you!”
The children also used the chance and asked the royal couple some questions. One child, who’d been doing a history project, shared with William that the ‘first William was called William the Conquerer’. Then he asked him: “What do you want to be called in 1,000 years time?”
Prince William answered: “I don’t think I can answer that.”
Kate, dressed in a mustard-coloured jumper from Zara, also received a virtual bouquet by Lloyd, aged nine.
