A little smile and a cheerful face can go a long way in lifting the soul of an individual. The mere fact that someone out there cares is enough to give hope in bleak times.
With the coronavirus pandemic raging on and people isolating, everyone is doing their best to stay happy and cheerful in these unprecedented times.

To help relieve the stress and put a smile on the faces of people, Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William made their first virtual royal school visit where they spoke to children at the Casterton Primary Academy.
In a video shared by the official Instagram page of the royals, Kate and William could be seen talking to kids who had to be in school because their parents were key workers in the healthcare system. A part of the caption read:
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge called teachers and school staff at Casterton Primary Academy to thank them for their hard work and dedication ..."
The royals looked adorable with Kate wearing a mustard color shirt and William wearing a blue shirt. The couple asked the children how they were enjoying this period, to which most of the kids replied that they were having fun.
The kids also showed Kate and William the fun activities they have been up to, such as painting, drawing, and craft designs. Two kids who had painted images of their mothers got high praise from the couple, commending them for their work.

Also, the teachers who were in charge of the students were not left out as the Duke, and Duchess thanked them for the hard work they were putting in during a time like this.
William thanked them for their work and asked that they passed the message across to all the staff who had taken the time to be available. Kate also thanked them, saying:
"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..."
Kate and William had heard about the work the Pendle Education Trust was doing and decided to appreciate them by making the call to boost their spirits.
The couple also recently placed a call to two hospitals thanking them for the work they had been doing since the outbreak of the virus.
With their children being homeschooled, the Duke and Duchess understand what a hard time it can be for those who do not have a place to send their kids to while having to work and help battle the spread of the virus.
Encouraging their kids to join in the appreciation of those working at this time, Kate and William are sharing rays of sunshine to those in need of it.
