Royal fans were left in stitches after noticing Kate Middleton taking a comical swipe at Prince William as they video called a school yesterday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge carried out their first royal tour via video call yesterday to speak to pupils and teachers at a Burnley primary school.

Following the social distancing rules surrounding the coronavirus, pandemic, the royal couple praised the teachers at Casterton Primary Academy for helping the small number of children whose key worker parents continue to deliver vital services to the public.

But viewers of the clip, which was posted to Kensington Palace’s Instagram page, couldn’t help but notice a funny moment.

As the clip came to a close, one of the teachers wished the couple a happy Easter.

“You guys too, have a happy Easter,” Wills replied. “There will be a lot of chocolate eating here, don’t worry.”

Kate quickly interjected with: “You keep eating it.” The duo burst into laughter before waving goodbye to the teachers.

Taking to Twitter, one fan said: “Kate telling Will off for eating all the chocolate haha.”

Another wrote: “We've all done it at some point, then had to buy a replacement. Loved this snippet about William..”

“Same Will, I feel you,” a third added.

And a fourth said: “That was my fave part, too. Busted sneaking the Easter eggies.”

Another light-hearted moment in the virtual tour saw one child ask the future king: “The first William was William the Conqueror. what do you want to be called?”

Wills laughed before swerving the question, saying: “I don’t think I can answer that.”

The couple spent an hour speaking to the children, who showed off their artwork portraying their heroic parents.

A total of 18 children were rotated in front of the camera in groups to follow social distancing guidelines.

Anita Ghidotti, chief executive of the Pendle Education Trust, speaking about the children's reaction to the royal encounter said: "They couldn't believe it. It was just absolutely fantastic."
