Like all parents around the country, William and Kate have found themselves acting as school teachers to their children during the coronavirus pandemic. And it looks like there will be no relief from teaching duties for the foreseeable future. Boris Johnson’s government is expected to announce that schools will stay closed after the February half-term, with a return to classes unlikely before mid-April.

In a candid interview for BBC Radio 5Lives That Peter Crouch podcast in July, the Duke of Cambridge admitted his shortcomings as a teacher.
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.”
He explained: “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.

“Basically we’re a good team tag session, I come in with the children and try and get them to do something and Catherine comes in when frankly everything has gone wrong.”
“I have to admit I’m a bit embarrassed about my maths knowledge, I can’t do Year 2 maths,” he added.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have three young children: Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.
The Duchess has an A level in maths
They have been living at their Norfolk home Amner Hall through the health crisis.
Prince George is in his final year of infant school at Thomas’s Battersea, in south west London.
His little sister Princess Charlotte joined him in September and is currently in the reception class.
