Kate and William gave surprising relationship update during first royal video engagement

The royal couple gave followers a rare look into their home with an IGTV video posted onto the Kensington Palace Instagram account on Wednesday. The rare footage showed the royal favourites carrying out their royal duties digitally by having a video chat with children and teachers at Casterton Primary Academy in East Lancashire.

This is one of the schools supported by Place2Be.

This organisation is one of the patronages supported by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and provides mental health counselling support and training to schools to improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and staff.

The school is currently remaining open "for the children of key workers and vulnerable children."

During their joint call, Kate and William spoke to children of frontline workers and their teachers and looked at the children's artwork with care.

The clip was closely examined by a body language expert, who claims there are plenty of signs to suggest the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are going from strength to strength in their relationship.

Traci Brown, body language expert and author of Persuasion Point: Body Language and Speech for Influence, told Elite daily: "They're really tight, as usual,

"We see them really intently focused on the kids they're talking to.

"They both have the same level of a smile on their face and come across with genuine interest.

"They're leaning ever so slightly towards each other again telling us they're on the same team."

The Duke of Cambridge, in particular, seemed to be really moved by the children and the plight the coronavirus has brought upon them and their families.

"We see William touching his chin quite a bit.

"Some of that is supporting his weight looking at what I'm sure is a small screen," Brown explains.

"The rest of that is showing that he's really thinking about what they're saying.

"That shows he's genuinely concerned and doesn't like the situation."

However, there were some lighter moments in the clip as one of the young children appeared to give the Duke a little telling off.

While virtually meeting two young sisters and their teachers, Kate and William took a look at their artworks.

One was holding a paper bouquet, which the Duke thought was simply "brilliant".

Her sister, on the other hand, crafted an Easter bag .

However, she was outraged when Prince William took a wrong guess at what he was looking at.

Speaking to the girl, the Duke said: "Is that a little handbag?"

The pupil replied "no!", while laughing.

She explained: "It's an Easter bag."

Prince William said: "Oh, it's an Easter bag, sorry!"
