The Cambridge family spent most of the pandemic billeted at their Norfolk residence, Anmer Hall.
Like other parents up and down the country, William and Kate spent many hours homeschooling their three kids.
In a candid interview with Peter Crouch for his podcast, the Duke of Cambridge admitted that his patience had been sorely tested and that he had been found wanting in his knowledge of maths.
He told the ex-footballer: “I’ve found it pretty testing, not going to lie, trying to keep the children engaged in some kind of work, it’s been an interesting few months.”
“I’ve learned through homeschooling that my patience is a lot shorter than I thought it was, that’s probably been the biggest eye opener for me, and that my wife has super patience.
“I have to admit I’m a bit embarrassed about my maths knowledge, I can’t do Year 2 maths,” he added.
The Duchess of Cambridge revealed that her parenting skills had been greatly influenced by her grandmother Valerie Glassborow, during a chat with TV presenter Giovanna Fletcher on her Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast.
Ms Glassborow famously worked as a Codebreaker at Bletchley Park during the second World War.
The Duchess explained: “I had an amazing granny who devoted a lot of time to us, playing with us, doing arts and crafts and going to the greenhouse to do gardening, and cooking with us.
“I try and incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences that I give my children now.”
