Kate Middleton Nails Waist-Up Dressing for a Zoom Call With School Children

Though Her Majesty The Queen went the traditional route to address the nation earlier this week via television, yesterday the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the ranks of those using video conferencing to connect with their community during the current global health crisis.

The royal couple — introducing themselves as “Catherine” and “William” — took to the Zoom app for a virtual meet and greet with staff and children from the Casterton Primary Academy in Lancashire, northern England. A clip from the call was posted on the Kensington Palace Instagram account. In the heartwarming video, they laughed and joked with a group of students who were all wearing pink bunny ears in celebration of Easter.

“We should have put our bunny ears on,” exclaimed the duchess while Prince William remarked that they were certainly “a strong look.” Likewise, the duchess’s top was equally Easter appropriate. She wore a $32 puff-sleeved sweater from Zara, which was the color of an egg yolk.

During the coronavirus pandemic, the school has remained open as a resource for the children of key workers. One young boy showed the duke and duchess a picture he had drawn of his mother who works for the British National Health Service.

“You should be very proud of her,” said the duchess, “the NHS workers are doing an amazing job.” The duo also congratulated staff who were helping keep such establishments open.

The Instagram post read “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”

The school is supported by the educational charity Place 2 Be of which Middleton is a patron.
