Prince William and Kate hope to be the first royals out of lockdown for physical engagements


PRINCE William and Kate hope to be the first royals out of lockdown — and he has been keeping busy at home as a helpline volunteer.

The Duke, 37, and Duchess of Cambridge, 38, have spent the last 11 weeks in isolation, just like the rest of the royals.

But a source said: “As with other royal households we are looking at ways we can do physical engagements in the future in line with Government guidance.”

Wills, meanwhile, has secretly been working as a crisis volunteer on text messaging service Shout85258, a 24/7 confidential mental health helpline he and Kate set up last year.

He did 25 hours’ training and in a video chat with other helpers he wrote: “I’m actually on the platform volunteering.”

The couple’s Royal Foundation invested £3million into Shout85258 and there have been more than 300,000 text conversations, around 65 per cent of them with under-25s.

Wills and Kate have been homeschooling their three children at Anmer Hall, Norfolk.

The duke, who has a Geography degree, joked he was finding his children’s homework a challenge.

Wills said: “I struggle with Year 2 maths.”
