Royal updates: Kate proves a class act at this home schooling

Kate also confessed she kept them in class during the Easter holidays to give their days “structure” but found “fun activities” online – and revealed they had been baking, cooking and pitching tents during the lockdown.

She said she was surprised how aware the trio were about some of the effects of the coronavirus outbreak . But Kate said she also had to explain the crisis in “age-appropriate” ways for Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis who will turn two next Thursday.

Speaking about life at their Norfolk home of Anmer Hall, the Duchess told BBC News: “Lots of home schooling, which is challenging.”

She added, laughing: “Don’t tell the children we’ve actually kept it going through the holidays, I feel very mean. It’s just having that bit of structure, actually.

“It’s great, there are so many great tips online and fun activities that you can do with the children so it hasn’t been all hardcore.”

In February, four pupils at George and Charlotte’s school, Thomas’s Battersea in south-west London, were reportedly sent home as a precaution following a trip to northern Italy where the virus was then spreading.

The school later closed in line with others as part of Covid-19 measures.

Kate admitted “ups and downs, like a lot of families self-isolating”.

She is appreciating having all her children at home but keeping up with them is a problem.

The Duchess said: “The children have got such stamina I don’t know how. Honestly, you get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things that you’ve done in that day.

“So you pitch a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake. You get to the end of the day, they have had a lovely time, but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day that’s for sure.”
