Once the pupil first starts painting, the Duchess of Cambridge begins to guess.
“Is it a wedding?” I ask, but quickly after telling the king “no,” Prince William guesses the correct answer – birthday party.
“This is really difficult!” Kate added, to which the Duke joked, “I’m so happy you guys are drawing and we don’t have to.”
In the next round, Prince William admits: “I am getting closer and closer to the camera” – but his tactic appears to be working as the royal couple soon determined that the drawing was “cricket”.
After this fun game, Kate went to ask students if they would appreciate going back to school now – and seeing their friends and teachers.
One student replied, “Yes, very happy” before asking if the couple liked to draw.
The Duke and Duchess (pictured) also spoke to the staff and children from SOS Children’s Village in Lahore, who met several of them during two visits to the village last October.
Some village children (pictured) also showed the Duke and Duchess the artwork they made about their memories of the visit last year, including drawings and friendship bracelets.
Prince William replied, “Yes sure, we both like a little bit of painting.” “Catherine is very good, I’m really bad.”
Kate added, “It’s not practicing enough.”
While visiting the government-run school last year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met pupils from kindergarten to sixth grade.
They also heard more about how they had benefited from the ‘Teach Pakistan’ program, which was modeled on the successful UK ‘Teach First’ scheme.
During the call, faculty spoke to The Duke and Duchess about how to adapt their operations during the school’s closure between March and September by providing pupils and instructional packages via WhatsApp.
The Duke and Duchess then spoke to the staff and children from SOS Children’s Village in Lahore, who met several of them during two visits to the village last October.

Prince William and Kate heard how the village helped teach children how to combat the spread of COVID-19 through special sessions led by doctors and medical staff, and the work being done to support the mental health of their staff and children across the pandemic.
Some village children also showed the Duke and Duchess the artwork they made about their memories of the visit last year, including drawings and friendship bracelets.
Founded in 1977, SOS Children’s Village provides a home and family structure to more than 150 girls and young people, and encourages children’s development into happy, confident and resilient adults.
The Duke and Duchess visited the village twice during their tour where they participated in a number of activities, including cricket, arts and crafts, and joined a birthday party for one of the children supported by the village.
During the match, Prince William joked, “I am very happy you guys that you are drawing and we don’t have to.”
