Kate Middleton is finding it “difficult” to homeschool her son Prince George as he always wants to play with his younger sister Princess Charlotte.
The British royal opened up about how her family has been coping during the Covid-19 lockdown in an interview with U.K. TV show This Morning on Thursday.
In the chat, she revealed that George, six, has been being a bit of a pain as he wants to complete five-year-old Charlotte’s more informal school tasks rather than his own work.
“George gets very upset because he just wants to do all of Charlotte’s projects. Making spider sandwiches is far cooler than doing literacy work,” she said.
Speaking about how she and her husband Prince William explain the coronavirus pandemic to their kids, Catherine, whose youngest son Prince Louis is two, added: “We try and check in daily with family members and speak to them about news and things like that, and in some ways, I suppose we’ve got a lot more face time than perhaps we would have done before but it is difficult. It’s hard to explain to a five and a six, nearly seven-year-old what’s going on.
“But the schools are being great at supporting them as well. Hard times, but we’ve got the support out there I think.”
During the lockdown, the 38-year-old is also spearheading a photography project that will capture the mood of U.K. citizens amid the pandemic. She has collaborated with curators at the National Portrait Gallery for the Hold Still exhibition, which will display photos sent in by the public later this summer.
