Prince William and Kate Middleton Enjoy Virtual Bingo Session with Nursing Home Residents
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate, paid a virtual visit to the residents of Shire Hall Care Home in Wales, to join in on a game of bingo.
On May 21, Prince William and Kate decided to put smiles on the faces of the older citizens in the Shire Hall Care Home, Cardiff, Wales. They stood in as the bingo callers for the riveting game. A snippet from the game was shared on Instagram.
Kate and Prince William started calling out the numbers on the balls in the game, using the traditional game lingo. The Duchess picked the first ball and held it up to the camera showing a five and eight.

She picked the second ball, which showed "five, five, snake's alive," and added that her son, George, would like that particular combination.
Williams followed, choosing a ball and holding it up to the camera so that the residents could see. He called out two little ducks number two. Kate followed, and on it went until the game ended.
The royal couple has been dealing with caring for their three vibrant children at home.
After the game came to a halt, Kate and William used the opportunity to connect with the residents. With a bit of humor, he asked if he and his wife were drawing the numbers badly.
The game was no doubt a delight to the seniors, and they all agreed that the Duke and Duchess had done very well. Before the game started, they spoke for a bit with the workers at the institution about the pandemic and how they had been affected. William said:
"If there's hopefully some positivity that comes out of this horrendous time, it is that there's a light shone on all of the wonderful things you all do."
They thanked the workers and praised them for the selfless service they were providing, not just them but also other social workers all across the UK, saying it was a well deserved appreciation.
The royals have been very focused on showing their appreciation and support for frontline workers. Remote visits have been recurrent on their schedule amid quarantine.
Meanwhile, at home, he and his wife have been dealing with caring for their three children. In a video conference with PEEK Project, the Prince admitted that he could relate to parents' struggle during meal time. Kids could be a handful, especially when they didn't like what they were being asked to eat.
Since the quarantine started, the Kensington royals have been attending to their royal duties remotely while spending quality time with their three kids — Charlotte, George, and Louis.
