Kate Middleton Shares Prince George’s Secret Talent to Celebrate Mother’s Day
Kate Middleton just revealed Prince George’s secret talent. Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, just celebrated Mother’s Day in the UK with her three kiddos and took to social media to share what George made her for the big day. George may only be six years old, but he is turning into quite the little artist. Here’s a look at what George made Kate for Mother’s Day, plus what the royals are doing to cope with the coronavirus pandemic.
Inside Kate Middleton’s parenting philosophy
Kate has always been open about her hands-on approach to parenting. Despite having access to a team of nannies, the Duchess of Cambridge enjoys spending time with George and his brother and sister, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Some of the activities Kate loves are cooking, painting, and doing crafts. She also pushes her children to go outside and be as active as possible. Even Prince William gets in on the fun and plays football with George and Charlotte in the yard.
With the entire country practicing social distancing, Kate Middleton has even more time on her hands to spend with her kiddos. For Mother’s Day, the Cambridges likely spent the holiday at their estate in the country, Anmer Hall.
The royal family has canceled upcoming events through the end of the month and will likely continue to self-isolate until the coronavirus pandemic slows down.
The Duchess of Cambridge reveals Prince George’s hidden talent
Over the weekend, Kate Middleton posted a photo of a Mother’s Day card George made for her on Instagram. The card featured a yellow vase against a blue background. Prince George painted a red heart at the center of the card and pasted on pink tissue paper for the flowers.
George likely made the adorable card at Thomas’s Battersea prior to the school’s shutdown last week. Kate clearly loved the card, which really showed off George’s creative side.
According to Hello Magazine, Kate Middleton is now homeschooling George and his siblings until the schools in the UK reopen. A spokesperson for George’s school recently revealed that they have started an online learning service to help out parents who are stuck at home.
“Due to the increasing number of children and staff absent from school because of the coronavirus pandemic, Thomas’s London Day Schools have decided to move to remote learning from Friday 20 March,” the spokesperson shared. “From this date the curriculum will be taught through online learning platforms and we have asked parents to keep their children at home and to access their lessons through this system.”
While it was great to see George’s secret talent, his card was not the only thing Kate shared on social media in honor of Mother’s Day.
Kate Middleton shares rare photos of her children
Taking to Instagram and Twitter, Kate shared a slew of photos of her children in honor of Mother’s day. This includes some never-before-seen shots of George and Charlotte and a heartfelt message to all the mothers in the UK.
“To mothers new and old and families spending today together and apart – we are thinking of you all at this difficult time. Happy Mother’s Day,” Kate and William captioned the photos.
One of the photos included in the collage was taken during a family trip to Norfolk and features Prince William and Kate Middleton giving their two oldest children piggyback rides.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also shared pics of when Kate was a baby, plus a few shots of William and Prince Harry with their late mother, Princess Diana.
George’s card was featured at the end of the collage and was the perfect capstone to the adorable post.
What will the royal children be doing amid the coronavirus pandemic?
With the UK taking significant measures against the coronavirus, the Cambridges will likely be hunkering down inside Kensington Palace for the next several weeks. Although Kate Middleton will be doing most of the homeschooling, she will be getting a little help from George’s school.
George is currently in his second year at St. Thomas’s Battersea, and the school’s online learning courses should help Kate and other parents get by. George is enrolled in the main courses of study, plus ballet, French, and swimming.
Charlotte, of course, just started her first year at school last fall. She is currently attending Reception, which has also been closed in light of the coronavirus.
The government in the UK has not said when schools will re-open, but families should expect them to remain closed for several weeks. Like other countries around the world, the schools are not going to test students at the end of the year, though it is unclear how students will progress to the next grade level.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are expected to take center stage amid the coronavirus pandemic as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles self-quarantine.
