The Duke of Cambridge has joked that the success of meal times in his family home “depends on what’s on the table”. The rare glimpse into life at Anmer Hall for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children came as The Duke of Cambridge participated in a video call with Glasgow charity, PEEK.
This week, The Duke of Cambridge was expected to be in Scotland this week for the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. Because of the COVID-19 lockdown, The Earl of Strathearn (as William is known in Scotland) was forced to cancel the visit and chose instead to partake in a video call with PEEK.
PEEK (Possibilities for Each and Every Kid) has been helping to deliver hot and healthy meals for vulnerable families throughout the Coronavirus lockdown. The charity has been helped by the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal and on the call, Prince William was given a tour of the charity’s food truck – Peekachew.
Community chef, Charlie Farrally said to Prince William during the call, “You’ll know yourself, the hardest time is dinner time.”
Prince William replied while laughing, “It depends what’s on the table. If parents put something on that children love, dinner time goes very well. But if you put something on the table they don’t want, that’s another ball game.”
After his call with PEEK, The Duke of Cambridge then took part in a video call with FInding Your Feet. Speaking to Corinne Hutton, who was given a 5% chance of surviving sepsis in 2013, Prince William said, “You’re a huge inspiration. I’m so pleased the NET have found you and you’ve found them and that relationship is helping.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have been isolating at Anmer Hall in Norfolk since the beginning of the lockdown.
