The British Royal Family has been pretty active in recent months. Since the novel coronavirus pandemic began, they’ve shared messages of hope and encouraged people to stay safe. 

However, some of them might have some issues with keeping to those rules as well. Yesterday, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, jokingly explained in an interview with BBC Breakfast that she had her hands full with managing her children.

As an Instagram video showed, the Duchess teamed up with BBC to meet with parents. The program was to drum up support for her new educational initiative, Tiny Happy People.

Amongst other things, the initiative aims to take a swipe at bridging the language barrier amongst children in the U.K. It targets children under five years.


While speaking, the Duchess explained that Prince Louis had trouble keeping off other people. In part, she said

“Louis doesn’t understand social distancing. He goes out wanting to cuddle anything, particularly any babies younger than him.”

With his affinity for hugging almost everyone, Duchess Kate has had to keep an extra eye on the little prince. Even at that, things are still quite challenging. 


As she explained, her other two children — Princess Charlotte and Prince George — tend to get hungry all the time. So, there’s a constant need to feed them. 

The Prince is in line for the British throne, and he has been learning more about tradition recently.

Many are finding it difficult to adjust to the movement restrictions. However, some have also admitted that the time at home has helped them bond with their families. 


As for Duchess Kate, this could also be the case. Last month, she appeared at a garden-planting event in Norfolk. There, she explained that she had been teaching her children a thing or two about gardening. 

While there, the Duchess also pointed out that Louis and George tend to compete while gardening. As she put it, Louis tends to win most of the time, thus making his brother a tad “grumpy.” 


However, it’s not all gardening and hugs for Prince Louis. The Prince is in line for the British throne, and he has been learning more about tradition recently. 

Per reports, he has been joining his mother for playdates and baking trips. He will most likely get to do more royal activities as he grows older. 

Prince Louis has had quite an eventful schedule during the lockdown. He turned two in April, and while he couldn’t have a big birthday bash, his parents managed to make things special for him. 

His little birthday get-together featured several of his hobbies, including finger painting. Perhaps he managed to get in a few hugs at that event too.
