Kate Middleton & Prince William Had Nursing Home Residents in Stitches During Joke-Filled Game of Virtual Bingo
Kate Middleton and Prince William just crashed a nursing home’s bingo game (a sentence we didn’t think we’d be writing today).
On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise virtual visit to Shire Hall Care Home in Cardiff, which provides residential, dementia and nursing care. During the video call, the royal couple took their turn as guest bingo callers and spoke with residents and staff about the challenges the facility is currently facing.
Lucky for us, the duke and duchess’s (newly updated) Instagram account shared a small clip from the virtual event and it’s clear the duo brought their clever sense of humor.
“George would like this one: five and five snakes alive,” Middleton quipped as she called the first number. “One and seven, dancing queen,” William called the next. We see what you did there.
The parents of three even personally congratulated the winner, Joan, who had some jokes of her own. “How did we do at bingo—did we do OK?" William asked before receiving quite the cutting response: "Yes, very good. It wasn't as good as it should have been." Classic, Joan.
Before the activity, William and Kate chatted with the staff to learn about the facility and thanked them for their continuous efforts to look after the most vulnerable in the community. The full video was shared on the official Royal Family YouTube account.
“If there’s hopefully some positivity that comes out of this horrendous time, it is that there’s a light shone on all of the wonderful things you all do and on the social care sector, and it allows people to acknowledge, respect and appreciate everything that you are doing," said William.
Now, how do we get these two to MC our next virtual event?
