The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took part in a video call with a group of schoolchildren from Pakistan whom they had met during a visit to the country last year. In the video call, the royals reconnected with the children by playing a game of Pictionary.
The Duke and Duchess managed to correctly guess a number of the drawings, including a birthday and a game of cricket.
However, when asked whether the royals were any good at drawing, Prince William admitted he was “really bad”.
Kate then gently rebuked her husband, adding: “You don’t practice enough!”
William then agreed, saying: “I don’t practice enough, that is very true.”
He added to the children: “I’m really glad you guys are drawing and we’re not having to draw!”
In any case, it seems the Duchess has more of a talent for drawing than William; The Prince admitted his wife was “very good”.

The five-day tour meant the couple were the first British royals to visit Pakistan – which is part of the Commonwealth – since 2006.
Prince William’s late mother Princess Diana also visited the country several times to carry out charity work.
Elsewhere in the video call, Kate asked the schoolchildren whether they appreciated being back in school and seeing their friends and teachers, to which they replied: “Yes! Very happy.”
The couple also spoke with staff from the SOS Children’s Village in Lahore.
They spoke about the coronavirus pandemic and how the village had helped encourage children to prevent the virus’ spread.
Children also presented the royals with artwork and friendship bracelets.
On Twitter, the KensingtonRoyal page posted: “One year on from Royal Visit Pakistan, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge caught up with teachers at Islamabad Model College for Girls to hear how the school’s activities have been impacted, before joining pupils in a game of Pictionary.”
During the call, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a gold kurta – a collarless shirt with historic roots in Asia.
Just a day beforehand, Prince William joined the Queen in a royal visit to the Government’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory.
There, they formally opened the department’s new Energetics Analysis Centre.
The Queen has now resumed her royal duties having spent the summer in Balmoral.
She was seen at the laboratory opening wearing a pink hat and jacket.
