Earlier this week on Tuesday, The Duchess of Cambridge had a very candid video call in which discuss the parenting and homeschooling during the lockdown with fellow parents and headteacher of Roe Green Junior School in London. Calling from Her Majesty’s Sandringham Estate, Catherine talked about the challenges parents around the nation are facing, mental health and some really interesting tidbits of her lockdown life.

“I know how challenging it is juggling work, home life, school life and everything else” – The Duchess of Cambridge

In the fun-filled call, headteacher, Melissa Loosemore asked three questions to the parents. In her first question, she asked the parents to rate their mathematics ability. The Duchess of Cambridge laughing hardly gave herself ‘-5’. Giggling Duchess told the parents, “I’m obviously right at the bottom!” When Melissa asked Parents to describe parenting during the lockdown in one word, describing the feelings of thousands of parents around the world Catherine wrote ‘Exhausting’ while other parents wrote ‘hectic’ ‘challenging’ and ‘patience’. All the words describing parenthood during lockdown very appropriately.

“As parents, we have day-to-day elements of being a parent, but, I suppose, during lockdown we’ve had to take on additional roles that others in our community and lives would have helped us with” – The Duchess of Cambridge

Talking about lockdown life, Catherine told she has become ‘hairdresser’ much to the horror of her kids. When Melissa asked who had been there biggest support during the lockdown, The Duchess of Cambridge very proudly and happily showed the paper that has written ‘William’ on it.

From the video call, another secret got revealed. We all can safely assume, The Duchess of Cambridge has watched the Regent Netflix series ‘The Bridgertons”. In her third question, when Melissa quipped, “We don’t want it to be Bridgerton or something like that, do we?” The Duchess of Cambridge laughed hard.

The conversation was built on some of the key issues that were raised in The Duchess’ landmark survey on the Early Years, such as parental wellbeing and loneliness. The research, which was released last November, revealed that parents struggle to prioritise their own wellbeing, in spite of the fact that 90% see parental mental health and wellbeing as being critical to a child’s development.

“Being able to share your own experience with others who are going through the same thing makes it feel less daunting and makes you feel less isolated, so it’s really important to reach out to loved ones and friends” – The Duchess of Cambridge

The Mentally Healthy Schools initiative was launched three years ago by The Royal Foundation in association with The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, Place2Be and Young Minds.

Ending the conversation in which she was joined by fellow parents Nicole Seidemann, Musadiq Subar and Rajana Panchani whose children go to Roe Green Junior, The Duchess of Cambridge said,

Fingers crossed, let’s hope for the positivity as you’ve all been saying. Make sure everyone looks after themselves — it’s very hard to prioritize but it’s definitely needed now more than ever. It’s important for our children that we look after ourselves too.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently at their country residence Anmer Hall. As the schools in the UK are going to remain close until March 8, Prince George and Prince Charlotte are being homeschooled.
