Prince William has a knack and talent for drawing but his wife, Kate Middleton, is apparently the better artist because he doesn't practice enough. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made this revelation during a virtual game of Pictionary with some school children in Pakistan.
The Cambridge couple shared the clips of their Pictionary game with the students on Instagram. As they tried to guess the drawings, Kate Middleton and Prince William struggled to identify the images at first but the Duke of Cambridge quickly got the hang of it.
His trick was to inch closer to the camera so he could clearly see the drawings. At the end of the short game, William looked pretty pleased with himself and said that he's glad they only have to guess and not draw anything.
One child asked if William and Kate like to draw and both of them nodded their heads. However, the Duke of Cambridge made a confession and said that his wife is very good but he's really a bad artist.
Another student asked why Prince William says he's bad at drawing and Kate tapped her husband's arm to answer the question. The Duchess of Cambridge told the kids that it's because the prince does not practice his artistic talents enough.
In October 2019, Prince William and Kate personally visited the children at this school in Pakistan to see how they are adapting to the school system, which was patterned after the U.K.'s "Teach First" program. This year, the Cambridges had to do a virtual visit due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
Kate asked the children if they were very happy to be back in school after their own lockdown and the kids said that they were glad to see their friends in person again. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also commended the teachers for taking care of the children despite the threats of the virus. Kate told the teachers that they are the "lifeline" of many families.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate have been counting on each other as they kept going with their royal obligations. A source revealed to Us Weekly that William is relieved to have his wife by his side.
The source shared that Prince William and Kate Middleton approach everything about their work and their family life on a similar page. They have the same mentality to "keep calm and carry on" amid the challenges of this uncertain times. The source also said that even Queen Elizabeth finds comfort in the thought that she could rely on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
