Prince William and his wife Catherine have once again displayed their kindness, making a special video call to students and teachers in Pakistan one year after their visit to the county.

While they can’t jet off overseas to visit, the royal couple didn’t want to miss out on connecting with people in Pakistan again, especially amid the outbreak of the coronavirus. So, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge dialled into a video chat with the Islamabad Model College for Girls to hear how the school’s activities have been impacted this year, before joining pupils in a fun game of Pictionary.

In a video shared to Instagram, William and Kate could be seen smiling broadly at the students and teachers who were waiting eagerly for the call.

“We want to play a little game with you,” a teacher could be heard saying. “So the game is called Pictionary.” To which William promptly replied: “We’ll give it a go.”

One of the students then started drawing a picture on a white board, while William and Catherine tried to guess what it was.

“I’m very glad you guys are drawing and we’re not having to draw,” the prince said as the girls continued to draw.

This sparked a conversation around drawing and whether the royals enjoy it. William admitted that they both like a little bit of drawing and said while Catherine is “very good” he’s “really bad”.

The couple also had a conversation with the students about being back at school, and to the teachers about their hard work helping the community during such a difficult time for everyone.

“You’re doing an amazing job,” Catherine told the teachers. “Particularly now when things have been so difficult. You’re a real lifeline to families out there so congratulations on all the hard work.”

Royal fans were thrilled to see the royals connecting with others overseas, with many commenting on social media about how kind and generous Prince William and Catherine both are.

“Ah wow, how lovely to see this!” @britishroyals_ wrote on Instagram. “Great interaction and the Duchess of Cambridge is so thoughtful towards Prince William.”

“The duke and duchess are always so grateful. Thank you for being such a wonderful example of kindness, leadership and grace in everything,” @paolamartz12 said. While @teresasteel67 added: “Thank you for your tender ways and for inspiring the children!”
