Kate Middleton on Homeschooling Prince George and Princess Charlotte
Kate Middleton has partnered with its patronage, the National Portrait Gallery in the United Kingdom, to launch a photography project during the coronavirus pandemic. And to promote the initiative, the Duchess of Cambridge did something she rarely does: a remote interview with ITV. The Duchess spoke about what inspired Hold Still, an upcoming exhibit in the UK where people are invited to submit photos documenting their lives during the COVID-19 epidemic. Kate also explained how she and her children are doing in quarantine while she and Prince William are schooling them at home.
When asked how she was, the Duchess of Cambridge replied, via Hello!, “Okay, thank you. It’s amazing. I’m sure you’re going through the same thing with yourself and your families and things. We’re still stuck in homeschooling. These are truly unprecedented moments. , okay, thanks for asking. “
The duchess said she uses FaceTime to stay in touch with other family members, which she and William discussed earlier in their recent BBC interview. And when it comes to home school, Prince George, 6, would far prefer the workload of Princess Charlotte, 5. “George is very upset because he just wants to do all of Charlotte’s plans. Spider sandwiches are much cooler than literacy work!” Said Kate.
Kensington Palace Instagram shared a clip from the interview, where Kate explained why she got involved in the creation of Hold Still. “We have all seen incredible images and heard incredible stories – desperately sad stories but also truly uplifting stories,” she began. “I really hope that through a project like this, we will be able to present some of these stories and document and share a moment, I suppose, that we all live in.”
