Families all over the world are experiencing the trials and tribulations of homeschooling their own children, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have had to figure out how to adjust their lives to accommodate educating their three young children, Prince George, 6; Princess Charlotte, 4; and Prince Louis, 23 months; amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Daily Mail reported.

“You pitch a tent take the tent down again, cook, bake,” Middleton said during a BBC interview. “You get to the end of the day - they've had a lovely time - but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day, that's for sure.”

The Duchess said the key for her family has been to utilize online resources and be sure to provide scheduled activities.

“It's just having that bit of structure, actually,” she said. “And it's great. There's so many great tips online and fun activities that you can do with the children, so it hasn't been all hardcore.”

She also admitted that she and Prince William have felt a bit “mean” continuing schooling through the Easter holiday.

“Don't tell the children, we've actually kept it going through the holidays,” she said. “I feel very mean.”

Beyond their schoolwork, the royals seem to be spending a lot of time catching up with family members virtually. Although Middleton explained that with a toddler, the connection can be challenging.

“...With a 2-year-old you have to take the phone away,” she said. “It's quite hectic for them all to say the right thing at the right time without pressing the wrong buttons. But it's great and it's nice to keep in touch with everybody.”

Like any family, spending so much time isolated together can be a recipe for chaos, especially when siblings have different agendas.

“It's been ups and downs, like a lot of families self-isolating,” the Duchess added. “George is much older than Louis is and things but they are aware, I'm always surprised.”

The Duke had his own thoughts about how self-isolation can be beneficial and stated he believes the reduction in travel and its environmental impacts has been a “positive” of COVID-19.

“Why don't we conduct more business at home?” he said. “Obviously, of course, there are plenty of businesses that rely heavily on face-to-face and those should continue. But I do hope post this that there's a new way of working and people are sensible and a bit more challenging in terms of how they travel and when they need to.”
