PRINCE WILLIAM and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge are currently on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. And in a recent virtual appearance, Prince William has opened up about the struggles he and Kate experience raising the Cambridge children.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Wiliam are currently isolating an Anmer Hall, the couple’s country estate in Norfolk. William and Kate are proud parents to three royal children: Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 5 and Prince Louis, 2. But this week Prince William opened up on life for the Cambridge family at home, and it seems William and Kate have the same struggles raising their children as any other parents.
Prince William has been keeping up with his busy royal schedule from home in Norfolk.
Although he cannot currently complete royal engagements in person, William has made numerous virtual appearances over the last couple of months.
This week Prince William spoke with community chef Charlie Farrally for the charity PEEK Project.
PEEK Project has been working during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide hundreds of meals per day to families affected by the crisis.

In his conversation with Mr Farrally, Prince William acknowledged the struggle he often has with his own children while at home.
Speaking about the charity’s work, Mr Farrally told William: “It’s certainly taken the pressure off parents, for sure.
“You’ll know yourself — the hardest time is dinnertime.”
To which William replied, laughing: “It depends on what’s on the table though Charlie, isn’t it? And that’s the thing.

“If parents put something on children love, dinnertime goes on very well.
“But if you put something on the table they don’t want to do, that’s another ball game.”
Kate and William have spoken publicly throughout the pandemic about the ups and downs of living as a family under lockdown.
Both Kate and William have been incredibly busy throughout the pandemic with countless royal engagements.
But alongside their busy royal schedules, Kate and William have also had to take on new parenting roles while on lockdown.
Schools are currently closed due to the outbreak, so with three children at home Kate has said in previous interviews the family are keeping themselves occupied with home learning.
As for the Cambridge children’s free time, royal expert Katie Nicholl explained to OK! Kate will be “very strict” on the ways the Cambridge children keep themselves entertained while on lockdown.
Ms Nicholl said: “The emphasis during this time will be on arts and crafts, painting and doing things that aren’t screen-orientated.

“Kate is usually very strict on screen time and keeps it to a minimum.”
She added: “The children aren’t allowed their own devices.”
Anmer Hall also boasts some impressive gardens, and according to Ms Nicholl Kate has been eager to get her children out of the house and playing outside as much as possible.
Ms Nicholl added: “Louis loves being outdoors and has been encouraged by Kate to have a love of nature.
“He’s happiest when he’s exploring the grounds. They’ve got climbing frames, swings and a pond, and each of the children are in charge of their own little patch of the kitchen garden.”
