Prince William is talking to Royal family via video calls and reveals worry for Prince Charles over coronavirus

Prince William and wife Kate Middleton spoke in a video call with Tina Daheley on BBC Breakfast this morning, when they gave a glimpse into their family life during lockdown.

The Duke of Cambridge, 37, revealed that he, Kate and their children are keeping in touch with the rest of the royal family via video calls during lockdown.

Kate, 38, admitted that the video calls be difficult with their three young children; Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, almost two.

The Duchess said the family had been through "ups and downs" during the lockdown like lots of families and said of the video calls: "It gets a bit hectic, I'm not going to lie, with a two-year-old you have to take the phone away.

"It's quite hectic for them all to say the right thing at the right time without pressing the wrong buttons. But it's great and it's nice to keep in touch with everybody."

During the chat, Prince William also admitted that he was concerned when his father Prince Charles, 71, was diagnosed with coronavirus.

The Prince of Wales suffered mild symptoms and had to self-isolate at his Scottish residence of Birkhall, but has since recovered.

He said: "I have to admit, at first I was quite concerned, he fits the profile of somebody, at the age he is at, which is fairly risky."

Prince Harry's older brother also revealed that he was confident that his father would recover, but acknowledged that isolation was tough for active Prince Charles.

William said: "My father has had many chest infections, colds, and things like that over the years. And so, I thought to myself, if anybody is going to be able to beat this, it's going to be him.

"And actually he was very lucky, he had mild symptoms. I think the hardest thing he found was having to stop. And not being able to go and get a bit of fresh air and a walk.

"He's a mad walker and just loves walking so I think he found it quite difficult. Especially, also I think with his mental health, being stuck inside and not being able to go for walks."
