Kate Middleton has said William has been eating all the chocolate ahead of the Easter break while Prince George has been binging on a new favourite TV show.

During a surprise virtual visit to kids whose parents are on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic, the Duke and Duchess laid out their plans for the Bank Holiday.

Young George is likely to be glued to David Attenborough's Blue Planet, which mum Kate said he'd been "watching lots of".

While William said in their household - which also includes Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis - "there'll be a lot of chocolate being eaten".

To which his wife joked: "You keep eating it." 

The Cambridges had dropped in on a show-and-tell session at Casterton Primary Academy in Lancashire yesterday, via video link - much to the surprise of the children and staff.

They spent an hour speaking to the delighted pupils, with William, 37, praising the "good northern volunteering spirit" of their teachers.

Kate said Sir David Attenborough is her favourite famous person

The kids, meanwhile, showed off pictures of their parents and Easter bonnets and bunny ears, they'd been making - while putting some fairly left field questions to the two royals.

Anita Ghidotti, Chief Executive of the Pendle Education Trust, told the Daily Mail the children asked them who "the best famous person was that they had met".

The Duchess, 38, had revealed her oldest son's favourite TV programme when answering Sir David - though the Duke said his favourite people weren't actually famous.

Staff had then wished them a happy Easter to which Kate made the playful jibe about William's soft spot for chocolate.

The school has stayed open because it is near Burnley General Hospital.

It is serving as a hub for Castercliff Primary, Pendle Primary, Colne Primet Academy and West Craven High School too – all part of Pendle Education Trust.
