During a Zoom engagement this week, the Duchess of Cambridge opened up about homeschooling in the pandemic, and revealed who her biggest supporter has been throughout the nation's multiple lockdowns.

Speaking to parents whose children attend Roe Green Junior School in Brent, Kate said: "I know how challenging it is juggling work, home life, school life and everything else that you as parents are doing, so really well done."

For the encouraging call, the duchess wore a moss green Massimo Dutti jacket, which she paired with a ribbed green top underneath. She accessorised the look with her favourite Daniella Draper necklace, which reportedly features the initials of her three children, as well as a pair of the designer's "cupid" hoops, per Hello! magazine.

The Gold Diamond Midnight Moon necklace retails for £1,020, and can be engraved with up to seven letters.

Per Daniella Draper's website, the piece is "made using 100% recycled 9-carat gold." The description also notes: "the moon is universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle. The phases of the moon symbolise immortality, eternity, and enlightenment."

As usual, the royal looked smart and stylish for the virtual engagement.

When asked to reveal the person who'd been her biggest supporter throughout the pandemic, Kate adorably wrote her husband Prince William's name.

She also described parenting during lockdown as "exhausting," and explained: "I think as parents you have the day to day elements of being a parent but I suppose during lockdown we have had to take on additional roles that I suppose others in our communities of in our lives would have perhaps supported us with."

Kate continued: "Fingers crossed, let’s hope for the positivity as you’ve all been saying. Make sure everyone looks after themselves—it’s very hard to prioritise but it’s definitely needed now more than ever."

The duchess also urged people "to reach out to loved ones and friends" if they're struggling with isolation - the royal has previously warned how lockdown loneliness is affecting parents with young children in a study by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Foundation.
