The Duchess of Cambridge said that finding a balance between homeschooling and playtime can be tiring as you manage to ‘cram a lot into you day’.

She admitted that she William didn’t tell Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis that it was the Easter holidays, preferring to stick to their regime.

Kate and William gave a rare interview to the BBC about mental health during the coronavirus pandemic. Kate also shared a glimpse into their home life with George, six, Charlotte, four, and one-year-old Louis.

Speaking about the Easter break, Kate admitted: “We didn’t tell the children we’ve actually kept going through the holidays.”

“I feel very mean,” she laughed.

The Duchess also spoke about how busy life is with three children. She revealed the family has a jam-packed schedule to help keep the little ones entertained.

She said: “You get to the end of the day, you write down a the list of the things you have done in that day.

“You sort of pitch a tent, take the tent down again, cooked, baked, you get to the end of the day, they have had a lovely time.

“It’s amazing how much you can cram into one day, that’s for sure.”

During the interview, which is part of a day the BBC has planned focusing on mental health issues, William also spoke about his father, Prince Charles, being diagnosed with coronavirus.

“I have to admit, at first I was quite concerned,” William said.

“He fits the profile of somebody, at the age he is at, which is fairly risky. And so I was a little bit worried.

“But my father has had many chest infections, colds, things like that over the years. And so I thought to myself, if anybody is going to be able to beat this, it’s going to be him.”

The Royal couple have been busy supporting the NHS and raising awareness of mental health. They posted a video of advice on their Instagram.

They wrote: “Now, more than ever, Every Mind Matters.
