Kate Middleton speaks to teachers with Place2Be

Kate Middleton, the wife of Prince William, 38, has shared clips from video calls with teachers and staff from Ribbon Academy, County Durham. She praised the school which has been holding classes for the children of key workers while supporting home learning.

Like many parents, Kate and Prince William have been homeschooling their children during the coronavirus pandemic.

With most schools currently closed, parents have been faced with the task of ensuring their children continued to learn.

This is no easy feat and even the Duchess of Cambridge has opened up about her struggles with this.

As part of Children’s Mental Health Week, Kate spoke to teachers at the school.

The royal made the call from her Norfolk residence of Anmer Hall, where she is currently in lockdown.

She said: “Schools are doing an amazing job, as parents you really recognise what a vital role you do play for us on a day to day basis – having remote learning as well.”

Clips from the videos were shared on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Instagram page, named ‘KensingtonRoyal’.

The clip was captioned: “What an inspiring group of teachers!

“Although it’s Children’s Mental Health Week, it’s hugely important we ensure our teachers are supported as well.

“@_Place2Be have been champions of mental health in schools across the UK and continue to provide support to those facing challenges throughout lockdown.

During the video call, Kate showed off her thrifty side by recycling a stunning tweed jacket.

The coat had a structured style and was buttoned up to the top. It was blue with white stitching throughout.

The timeless piece of clothing was from New-Zealand designer Rebecca Taylor and it is not the first time Kate has worn it.

The mother-of-three will often show off her relatable fashion sense by rewearing designs many times.

The jacket, which was on sale for around £400, was previously spotted on Kate during an engagement in 2017.

Kate completed the look with simple make-up, opting for a fresh slick of bronzer and lashings of mascara.

Veering away from her signature bouncy blow-dry, Kate pulled her hair back into a half-up half-down do.

She wore a pair of subtle drop gold earrings to pull her outfit together.

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?

The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 38, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
