Prince George isn't too happy with Princess Charlotte's homework – compared to the homework he has to do, at least.

In a television appearance on This Morning, Kate Middleton shared what life's been life in lockdown amid the coronavirus. She told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: "We're stuck into homeschooling again, they're unprecedented times, but we're fine, thank you for asking."

Holly told Kate: "Well, homeschooling is a challenge as I imagine you're experiencing yourself – I also have three children at different ages and it is quite difficult keeping them all occupied with their individual topics."

Kate nodded and laughed: "Yeah, it's true, and actually George gets very upset because he just wants to do all of Charlotte's projects, like making sort of spider sandwiches is far cooler than doing literacy work."

Kate appeared on the show to talk about her new community photo project, Hold Still.

In collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, Kate is asking people from across the UK to send through photos of what life is like amid the Covid-19 pandemic to be displayed in a digital exhibition for all to see in August.

"We've all been struck by some of the incredible images we've seen which have given us an insight into the experiences and stories of people across the country. Some desperately sad images showing the human tragedy of this pandemic and other uplifting pictures showing people coming together to support those more vulnerable," Kate said.

"Hold Still aims to capture a portrait of the nation, the spirit of the nation, what everyone is going through at this time. Photographs reflecting resilience, bravery, kindness – all those things that people are experiencing."
