We already know that Kate Middleton and Prince William have mastered Zoom for their virtual engagements. But, as it turns out, the royal couple has also been using video chats to stay in touch with the rest of their family.
On Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sat down for a rare remote interview with the BBC and opened up about how they are communicating with their parents and grandparents while self-isolating at their country home in Norfolk.
“We’ve been talking to all the family online. And it’s been a really good way of keeping in touch and seeing each other,” said William. The couple also revealed which members of the family are better with technology.
“As you can imagine, the younger generation are a little bit more tech-savvy, but only just,” he continued. Was that some slight royal shade we detected, William? “I think we’re getting there now. The family is getting a little bit more used to be able to contact each other and pressing the right buttons and not dropping the computer halfway through.”
“It’s so true,” Middleton agreed. “And I think your father and my parents and our families have really loved keeping in touch with the children because it’s really hard. It gets a bit hectic, I am not going to lie, with a two-year-old.”
And according to the father of three, Prince Louis is the one who’s always trying to end the call. “For some reason, he sees the red button and he always wants to press the red button.”
We’re suddenly getting flashbacks to attempting to video chat with our grandparents.
