    I don't get the fuss over William's hair. Sure he looked better with it but it's no big deal

    Americans reputedly are obsessed with hair and teeth? Guess the Brits would care more if he showed movie star vanity, considering that's not his job.

    It would be hilarious if he got plugs. They're ridiculous, even more so on someone we've all seen walking around like a cueball for years.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge revealed today that they home schooled their children during the Easter holidays without telling them - as they also spoke of their fears for Prince Charles over his coronavirus diagnosis.
    Prince William and Kate said it had been 'challenging' to teach their three children - who they said had 'got such stamina', although it 'hasn't been all hardcore' - but also told how they have been staying in touch with other Royal Family members using online video calls, in an interview with BBC Breakfast broadcast this morning.
    Kate said of home schooling: 'Don't tell the children, we've actually kept it going through the holidays. I feel very mean. The children have got such stamina, I don't know how. Honestly, you get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things that you've done in that day.'
    She added: 'It's just having that bit of structure actually. And it's great, there's so many great tips online and fun activities that you can do with the children, so it hasn't been all hardcore.'
    William admitted he was 'quite concerned' for Charles after his 71-year-old father tested positive for coronavirus after having mild symptoms last month - but the Duke had been optimistic he would make a full recovery.
    He also revealed he is worried about the health of his elderly grandparents, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, although they have both been doing all they can to ensure they are protected and isolated at Windsor Castle.
    William also said the lesser environmental impact of people not flying around the world for business had been a 'positive' of the pandemic, and said he hopes people will now choose to work from home more in the future.
    And the couple told of their fears for the mental health of NHS staff who will be carrying some of the 'pain, fear and loneliness' suffered by patients, adding: 'They're the ones who absorb that and take it home to their families.'
    Also during the interview with the BBC's Tina Daheley:

    • William spoke about the stages of grief during mourning - how people will feel 'angry, confused and scared';
    • Kate admitted online video calls with the rest of the Royal Family had been 'a bit hectic, I'm not going to lie';
    • The Duchess hinted that they might call Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to celebrate Archie's first birthday;
    • William said he had been positive about Charles beating the virus because of his many previous ailments;
    • The Duke said the three-week lockdown has been 'frustrating' as 'pressure, stress and isolation' builds up;
    • Kate praised the 'extraordinary job' NHS staff and other frontline workers are doing during the pandemic.

    The Duchess also talked about how the couple had kept a strict regime while home schooling their children Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, who is two next week, in the past month.
    The couple said it was also important to avoid scaring their children and making it 'too overwhelming', but added that home schooling was 'fun' and the children had been pitching tents, cooking and baking.
    And speaking about continuing the home schooling throughout the Easter holidays this month, the Duchess said: 'We don't tell the children we've actually kept going through the holidays. I feel very mean.'

    Kate also said the family had been through 'ups and downs' during the lockdown 'like lots of families' since it was imposed on March 23, but they had stayed in touch with other family members using video conferencing apps.

    She said the family were getting used to contacting each other in a different way - and trying to avoid dropping the computer halfway through, adding: 'It gets a bit hectic, I'm not going to lie.
    William admits he was 'quite concerned' for his father Prince Charles

    Prince William told of his fears for his father Prince Charles after he was diagnosed with coronavirus and had to self-isolated at his Scottish home of Birkhall.
    He said: 'I have to admit at first I was quite concerned, he fits the profile of somebody, at the age he's at, which is, you know, fairly risky, and so I was a little bit worried.
    'But my father has had many chest infections, colds and things like that over the years and so I thought to myself (if) anybody's going to be able to beat this it's going to be him.'

    William added that Charles was 'very lucky he had mild symptoms' and told how he ''got a lot of good reassurance from doctors and friends of mine who said 'listen, the days he's on when we found out about it, he's probably passed the worst of it'.'
    The Duke continued: 'And obviously speaking to him made me feel more reassured that he was OK, but again at that age you do worry a bit more.'
    A fornight ago, Prince Charles opened the new NHS Nightingale hospital at the ExCeL centre in London, built to deal with the many seriously ill virus patients expected in the coming weeks.
    He has also offered a message of hope when he recorded a video after coming out of isolation following his positive test for the infection, which also saw his wife Camilla have to self-isolate in a different part of Birkhall.
    'With a two-year-old you have to take the phone away. It's quite hectic for them all to say the right thing at the right time without pressing the wrong buttons. But it's great and it's nice to keep in touch with everybody.'
    They said Charles, Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton and 'our familes' have all enjoyed keeping in touch, but added of Louis: 'For some reason he sees the red button and he always wants to press the red button.'
    The Duchess also indicated that they might call Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in Los Angeles next month to celebrate Archie's first birthday on May 6.

    I do agree a lot with one of the things that Wills said ... more people working from home from now on. Those pictures of LA without the smog were AH-MAZING and it was only a couple of weeks.

    Honestly, I would not be surprised if she was reacting to a child in the crowd. She just lights up with children.
