Prince William and Kate Middleton remain focused on the mental health of the British people during the coronavirus pandemic. The couple opened up to the BBC in a candid interview, highlighting the importance of mental health and also talking about how their own family is coping in quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

"It's been, yeah, ups and downs, probably like lots of families self isolating," Kate said. "George is much older than Louis is, but they are aware. I think I'm always surprised and also you don't want to, sort of, scare them and make it too overwhelming. I think it's appropriate to acknowledge it in simple ways and in age-appropriate ways."

On the topic of homeschooling their kids -- George, 6, Charlotte, 4, and Louis, almost 2 -- the couple started laughing before William quipped, "Yeah, homeschooling's fun."

"We don't tell the children, we've actually kept it going through the holidays," Kate said of skipping the spring break. "I feel very mean. The children have actually got such stamina."

She noted that they've been pitching tents, cooking, and baking. 

"They've had a lovely time, but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day, that's for sure," Kate added.
