Kate Middleton could use Queen’s tips for homeschooling Prince George and Charlotte

Kate Middleton’s project given ‘nice nod’ says expert

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 39, and Prince William, 38, are spending lockdown in Norfolk with Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two. George and Charlotte are both pupils at Thomas’s Battersea but have been unable to return to class as school remain closed amid the current lockdown.

Kate and William homeschooled George and Charlotte during the first lockdown last March and are doing the same this time around.

The Duchess previously shared her home-schooling struggles but this time around she could draw on tips from fellow Royal Family members for help.

Queen Elizabeth II, 94, shared resources for parents to teach their children at home via her official Twitter account

On Wednesday the Royal Family’s official Twitter account shared a string of tweets linking to National Trust resources.

The first tweet read: “Every Wednesday for the next few weeks, we’ll be highlighting cultural institutions which are providing online resources for use by homeschoolers and for anyone interested in finding out more about their work.

“Today, we begin with the @NationalTrust.”

A second tweet added: “Beatrix Potter and the National Trust have a unique history – she worked closely with the Trust, helping it to acquire land in her beloved Lake District.

“When she died in 1943, Potter left 4,000 acres of land, including 15 farms, to the care of the National Trust.”

And a third read: “The Trust have a wealth of online activities inspired by Potters famous Tales for families to try together at home, including puzzles, craft activities, nature projects and recipes.”

The National Trust is one of the many charities of which heir apparent Prince Charles, 72, is patron.

Charles’s is likely to have backed the Queen’s move to promote the organisation and its resources on Twitter.

Kate and William are both hands-on parents and encourage their children to play outdoors as much as possible.

The duchess may have drawn on the Queen’s recent tweets to come up with some National Trust-based task for George and Charlotte to complete at home.

During the first lockdown, Kate revealed that George sometimes gets jealous of Charlotte’s homework.

The Duchess told This Morning: “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!”

Kate, William and the children are expected to remain at Anmer Hall until the current lockdown ends.

The couple’s main base is at Kensington Palace in London but they are unlikely to return to the capital until restrictions are eased entirely.

Kensington Palace is a short drive from George and Charlotte’s school.

Both William and Kate are known to do the school run and work their royal schedules around picking up and dropping off George and Charlotte.
