Prince William jokes he hasn’t been wearing TROUSERS during Zoom calls | Royal | News

The Duke of Cambridge appeared on the BBC One show in aid of Comic Relief and Children in Need just before the 8pm Clap for Carers celebration. In the comedy sketch Stephen Fry’s Blackadder character Lord Melchett was trying to help William with home schooling during the coronavirus lockdown.

As the time approached 8pm, Mr Fry gave William a 60 second warning, where the Duke joked he was not ready and had to get changed.

William said: “On my way, let me just see if I can find my socks… and my shoes… and my trousers.”

A few moments later out came William, Kate and their three children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and birthday boy Prince Louis, two.

Charlotte began the clapping and was quickly joined by the rest of her family in the weekly tribute to our care workers on the COVID-19 frontline.

In the pre-recorded skit between Mr Fry and William, the Duke was quizzed about how he finding teaching his children from home.

William joked it had been a “nightmare” and asked Mr Fry if he could help with spelling.

Over his laptop Mr Fry said: “So how is the home schooling going?”

William then said: “It is a bit of a nightmare really.”

The award winning actor and author then offered some assistance, he said: “Well I would be delighted to help if I can, what subjects are on the curriculum?”

Without hesitation the Duke said: “Spelling.”

Mr Fry replied: “I could help with that I can do most words from cat to contrafibularities.”

William continued to stay in character wanted to turn the topic of conservation onto history, however a witty Mr Fry insisted the Royal Family would be a strong point of the second-in-line to the throne.

On the topic of history, Mr Fry said: “Well I am not too bad on Kings and Queens but then I am guessing that may also be your strong point.

A smiling William then said: “You would think so wouldn’t you.”
