When Prince William and Kate Middleton video called the Casterton Primary Academy in Lancashire to thank the teachers for their efforts during the coronavirus outbreak, the Duchess of Cambridge, led the talk. The future queen consort perfectly knew what to do with their conversation and know how to greet the school staff and children, which seemed to be a subtle hint that “she is the boss” in their marriage.
The Boss in Kate Middleton
Royal expert Angela Mollard said in an episode of the ROYALS podcast that she loved how the mother-of-three led the conversation by introducing both of them to students and teachers at the other end of the line. “It gave you an insight into what she must be like at home,” she said, via The Sun.
Mollard commended Kate Middleton for being highly organized, revealing she’s the boss in the relationship. She took charge of the call in a very nice way and also showed warmth and compassion in how she spoke to children by always asking their names.
“She’s the boss in that she’s a mother of three children who does 50 million things a day,” Mollard added. “She has a really strong connection to not just her own children but to other people’s children as well.”
The Cambridges’ Heart-Warming Call
Casterton Primary Academy remains open amid the coronavirus outbreak to help children of the country’s essential workers and those who are most vulnerable in this time of crisis. It is now used as a hub for five local academies: Castercliff Primary Academy, Pendle Primary Academy, Colne Primet Academy, West Craven High School, and Casterton Primary Academy, which are all part of Pendle Education Trust.
So when Prince William and Kate Middleton made a heart-warming video call to thank the teachers for their work, according to Hello! Magazine, the teachers felt delighted.
“Well done honestly to you and everyone who’s in during this time. It must be such a relief for all the parents, who are key workers, to know that the normality is there for their children – they’ve got the structure, and they’ve got a safe place for them to be, so really really well done to all of you,” Kate Middleton said.
Prince William also extended his thanks to the school staff and commended their hard work.
“We just want to say a huge thank you to you guys and well done in keeping it all going. Please pass on many messages of support for all the staff and all the volunteers – they’re doing a great job,” he added.
