Duchess Kate and Prince William made a video call to schoolkids, who have parents that are working on the frontline.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were calling from Amner Hall as they spoke to staff and youngsters from Casterton Primary Academy in Lancashire. It was reported that teachers were helping to look after the children of key workers in front line services including the NHS and social care, as well as supermarkets and delivery drivers. The royal couple appeared to be laughing when the youngsters wore Easter-themed bunny ears and offering them with a ‘virtual’ bouquet of paper flowers. Several kids also showed their drawings of their key worker parents to the royal pair and explained why they were proud of them. They also chatted to the staff of Pendle Primary Academy, about the difficulties that schools, teachers and children are facing. Meanwhile, Duchess Kate and Prince William were said to be willing to thank the staff for all they were doing during the COVID-19 epidemic and concern about the effect it might have on the students. The 38-year-old Duchess was wearing casual mustard jumper and gold fern drop earrings at that time.
