Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on virtual engagement
On April 8, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went on a virtual engagement to Casterton Primary Academy in Lincolnshire via video call.
The children and teachers from the school gave the Cambridges a virtual tour of their classroom, updating them on the Easter activities they had been preparing. The children of key workers are still permitted to attend school in the UK, whilst non-essential worker’s children have to be in quarantine. Key workers include nurses and doctors, supermarket workers, bin workers, delivery drivers and teachers. Children who are at risk to the virus as a result of additional medical conditions are also being kept at home.
The children showed the Cambridges photos of their parents and told them why they were proud of them. The Duke of Cambridge was even given a virtual bouquet designed by one of the children during the call.
The school is governed by the Pendle Education Trust who works closely with Place2Be, one of the charities that the Duchess is patron of. Place2Be focuses on the welfare and mental health of children and young people across the UK. The charity’s manager based at the academy also spoke to the Cambridges.
