Prince William and Kate Middleton, despite being married for almost ten years and sharing three children, tend to keep it strictly business while carrying out their official royal duties (which are once again mostly taking place over Zoom). However, in a recent chat with a group of fellow parents, the Duchess of Cambridge said something endearing about her husband while discussing life in lockdown.
During the conversation, the group were first asked by headteacher Melissa Loosemore to write down how they'd rate their own mathematical ability (seeing as they're now home schooling their children) and Kate jokily scored herself as a "minus 5".
Next, the Duchess and the three other parents were asked to write down the name of the person who had been their biggest support throughout lockdown – and here's where the lovely, rare PDA comes in – as Kate wrote in her neat, cursive handwriting 'William'.
As the conversation moved on, talks also turned to how everyone had been finding the third lockdown and Kate again wrote a word giving an insight into her life raising three mini royals, when she penned 'exhausting' as her answer.
She shared that not only has she become a teacher to her little ones, but a hairdresser too, laughing that it was much to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis's dismay. "I've become a hairdresser this lockdown, much to my children's horror, seeing mum cutting hair," the Duchess said. "We've had to become a teacher – and I think, personally, I feel pulled in so many different directions and you try your best with everything, but at the end of the day I do feel exhausted."
The conversation was posted to the Kensington Royal Instagram account along with the caption: "Who has been the greatest support to you during the pandemic? Tag or comment below 👇 We spoke with parents about the challenges that many families are facing during the third lockdown here in the UK - and how important it is to prioritise parents’ mental wellbeing as it has a direct connection to their child’s mental health."
It also shared a list of helpful resources, "The past year has been very difficult for families who are unable to rely on their usual support systems. Please know support is available: @Mindcharity, @youngmindsuk, @giveusashoutinsta, @actionforchildrenuk."
It's comforting to know that the Cambridges are experiencing many of the same challenges as countless other families out there.
