Kate Middleton news: Duchess hints she’s been sketching during lockdown in new video | Royal | News (Reports)


Kate and Prince William caught up with teachers at Islamabad Model College for Girls one year after they toured the country. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took part in a video call during which they played Pictionary with a few students. 

After the royals showed how impressed they were by the drawing skills of the girls, one of the pupils asked them if they enjoyed this hobby.

Prince William replied: “Yes, definitely, we both like a little bit of drawing.

“Catherine is very good, I’m really bad.”

Asked why, Kate steps in and, touching her husband’s arm, she said: “You don’t practice enough!” 

She then laughed, leaving Prince William to say: “I don’t practice enough, that’s very true.” 

During their video call, Kate and William heard how the school’s activities have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. 

Speaking to three pupils, the Duchess asked whether they were happy to have returned to school.

The sweet children replied together: “Yes, very happy.”  

Both teachers and students taking place in the call were wearing face masks. 

Speaking alone with the teachers, the Duke and Duchess congratulated them on their efforts to support their pupils despite the ongoing pandemics.


Kate said: “You are doing an amazing job, particularly now when things have been so difficult.

“You are a real lifeline to families out there so congratulations on all the hard work.” 

Prince William and Kate carried out a successful five-day tour to Pakistan last year. 

The couple began their tour at this school, during which the Duke remembered his mother Princess Diana during an emotional conversation with the pupils.  

William was told a few of the girls were “big fans of your mother”.

After giving them a broad smile, the Duke said: ‘You were, really? Oh that’s very sweet of you.

“I was a big fan of my mother too. She came here three times. I was very small.’

During the tour, Kate and Prince William had the chance to remember Princess Diana on several occasions by visiting the same locations the late Princess of Wales had also seen during her visits to Pakistan. 

The couple met Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, who met the late princess when he was still a cricket player, and paid tribute to their friendship. 

Kate and William also followed in Diana’s footsteps when they went to Lahore’s Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital to meet young patients – similarly to what the princess did in 1997.
