Teachers across the UK are dedicating their time to keeping schools open for the children of key workers and vulnerable children. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge called teachers and school staff at Casterton Primary Academy to thank them for their hard work and dedication – and to wish the children a very Happy Easter 🐣 @_place2be
To the delight of royal watchers everywhere, Prince William and Kate Middleton recently got on a video call – a royal first – with the students of Casterton Primary Academy in Lancashire, England. But what makes this school so special? It remains open in order to cater to the children of key workers in the fight against coronavirus, including supermarket staff, delivery drivers, and the doctors and nurses employed by the NHS.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – only two of the most recognizable faces on the planet – actually took a moment to introduce themselves before sharing a few giggles with the primary school students, who shared drawings of their parents while wearing bunny ears. “That’s a strong look,” said William, before the two went on to praise the efforts of NHS workers. The royal couple also personally thanked the teachers who were on duty. “Please pass on many messages of support for all the staff and all the volunteers – they’re doing a great job,” he added. While the bunny ears are optional, we know you’ll need a box of tissues to watch this one.
