Last week was a special one for the Cambridge family as Prince George and Princess Charlotte have started school. Prince William and Duchess Kate eldest children returned to Thomas’s Battersea after months of isolation and home-schooling due the COVID-19.
The young lady Charlotte is entering Year 1, while her brother George has begun Year 3.
And while William and Kate are getting used to doing the school run, they have also returned back to royal duties according to the Court Circular.
Duchess Kate had a meeting with Jason Knauf, who took over as CEO of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Foundation from Lorraine Heggessey in September 2019.
On Wednesday, Prince William has carried out his first public engagement following the summer break. He traveled to Northern Ireland to meet with police, ambulance, fire and rescue workers as he marked Emergency Services Day.
William, who spent two years flying to emergencies, gave thanks to two million frontline workers across the UK’s NHS and emergency responders during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“As you care for us in our time of need, so too must we ensure that we are there for you when you need it the most”.
“I know first-hand, that even in routine circumstances, those of you on the front line can face immense challenges that can naturally have a significant impact on both your physical and mental health.
Speaking about those “long” months last week, William told a police officer that he suspected other moms and dads were having the same experience as himself.
“I think every parent is breathing a sigh of relief that school has started again”. He went on: “Five months – it’s been wonderful, but it’s been a long five months.”
Prince William also had two meetings; one with Mark Bullingham, the FA’s CEO, and another one with professional footballer Daniel Alves, via telephone.
