Kate Middleton Discusses the ‘Ups and Downs’ of Self-Isolating, Says Kids 'Are Aware' of What's Happening in the World

Kate Middleton and Prince William are making sure their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, aware of what's going on in the world right now.

On Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sat down for a rare remote interview with the BBC and opened up about what the last three weeks have been like for their family, who is currently social distancing from their country home in Norfolk.

“It’s been ups and downs, like a lot of families self-isolating,” Middleton stated. She went on to reveal that the kids certainly know what's happening to a degree. “George is much older than Louis is and things but they are aware. I’m always surprised. And although you don’t want to scare them and make it too overwhelming, I think it is appropriate to acknowledge it in the simple ways and age-appropriate ways.”

The couple’s three kids have even shown their support for workers on the frontline fighting against COVID-19. Last month, Kensington Palace shared a never-before-seen video on Twitter, featuring the Cambridge children applauding for the camera. The video was in response to a recent social media campaign, which honors healthcare workers using the hashtag #ClapForOurCarers.

Ups and downs during this uncertain time? We can totally relate.
