Prince William joked that he and his wife, Duchess Kate, are relieved that their eldest two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are back at school.
"I think every parent is breathing a sigh of relief that school has started again," said William during a royal engagement in Belfast. George and Charlotte both participated in virtual learning at home amid the height of the coronavirus pandemic in the United Kingdom.
Prince William is opening up about sending Prince George and Princess Charlotte back to school after months of at-home learning due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Hello! magazine, during a royal engagement in Belfast this week, William joked that he and his wife, Duchess Catherine, were feeling relieved now that their oldest two children were safely back at school.
"I think every parent is breathing a sigh of relief that school has started again. Five months, it's been wonderful, but it's been a long five months," he joked.
Both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have spoken about how life has been with the entire family learning and working from home amid the pandemic. During an interview with the BBC earlier this year, Kate admitted that her youngest child, Prince Louis, isn't so fond of social distancing, and that George and Charlotte prefer snack time over actual school time.
"Louis doesn't understand social distancing. He goes out wanting to cuddle anything, particularly any babies younger than him," said the duchess back in July. She went on to describe her children as having "bottomless pits" and that she feels like "a constant feeding machine" at home.
In a separate chat with the BBC, Kate declared, "You get to the end of the day, they've had a lovely time, but it's amazing how much you can cram into a day, that's for sure."
