Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, and Prince William, 38, have opened up about the challenges they have faced as the parents of three young children during the coronavirus. Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, have all been at home with their mum and dad since March.
The Cambridges relocated from Kensington Palace to their country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk before lockdown restrictions came into force.
While the family enjoyed a brief staycation off the Cornish coast on the Isles of Scilly in early August they are understood to have otherwise been based at Anmer Hall throughout.
However, this is expected to change with schools in England due to return full time for the start of the autumn term.
Both Prince George and Charlotte are pupils at Thomas’s Battersea in London and are expected to go back to school with the rest of their classmates.
Kate is said to be most at home at Anmer Hall but she and William moved to London ahead of George beginning school.
They now spend term time in an apartment at Kensington Palace and usually holiday at Anmer Hall.
Given that George and Charlotte are due back at school soon, William and Kate are expected to move back to the capital at the start of September.
After schools were closed, William and Kate were tasked with tutoring George and Charlotte at home and faced similar struggles to most parents.
Speaking on This Morning, Kate told presenters Philip Schofield and Holly Willougby that George at times had been jealous of his little sister’s homework.
She said: “George gets very upset because he wants to do Charlotte’s projects.
“Because making things like spider sandwiches is far cooler than doing literacy work!”
Soon after schools first closed ahead of Easter, Kate shed light on what she was doing to keep her little ones busy.

The Duchess revealed she was keeping them to a tight schedule and hadn’t let them know it was the Easter holidays.
She told BBC Breakfast: “Don’t tell the children, we’ve actually kept it going through the holidays.
“I feel very mean! (laughs). The children have got such stamina I don’t know how.
“Honestly, you get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things that you’ve done in that day.”
Kate added: “So you pitch a tent take the tent down again, cook, bake.
“You get to the end of the day – they have had a lovely time – but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day that’s for sure.”
The return to school after so much time at home is likely to be odd for Prince George and Charlotte as it will for pupils across the country.
Their younger brother Prince Louis, two, is too young for school and will get to stay and home while his older siblings go back to class.
Once back in London, Kate and Prince William are expected to resume royal duties in the capital while the Queen is expected to remain at Balmoral for the foreseeable future.
