Queen helps Britain’s parents through lockdown homeschooling in surprising morale boost

Prime Minister Boris Johnson plunged England into another national lockdown last week due to the surging of COVID-19 cases. The third lockdown has meant schools have had to close their doors to most students, leaving many parents across the country with their children at home.

But the official Twitter account for the Royal Family has started to share some resources for parents and homeschoolers.

A threat of tweets shared by the Royal Family’s account on Wednesday explained how every Wednesday for the next few weeks they will be providing online resources.

The post read: “Every Wednesday for the next few weeks, we’ll be highlighting cultural institutions which are providing online resources for use by homeschoolers and for anyone interested in finding out more about their work.

“Today, we begin with the @nationaltrust.

“The Prince of Wales is President of the Trust which preserves places of historic interest or natural beauty for the nation across England.”

The royal account added how Beatrix Potter used to work closely with the National Trust.

It read: “Beatrix Potter and the National Trust have a unique history – she worked closely with the Trust, helping it to acquire land in her beloved Lake District.

“When she died in 1943, Potter left 4,000 acres of land, including 15 farms, to the care of the National Trust.

Kate and William have been known to encourage their children to take part in outdoor activities.

In the summer, Prince George and Princess Charlotte picked up a new hobby to keep them busy during lockdown.

The royal children were looking after chickens they raised from chicks.

William and Kate’s children appear to have taken after Prince Charles who also loves to rear birds.

The two young royals were self-isolating at Anmer Hall at the time with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Louis.

The children were going outside to check on their chickens when they are not inside the 10-bedroom country house.

At the time, a source told the Sun: “The great interest outside Anmer Hall are the hens, reared from chicks.

“Kate and the children are out daily in the hen house, collecting fresh eggs in their baskets, and the eggs are then used in the kitchen almost immediately.

“Kate and the children have a well laid out chicken coop, and a safe fox-proof chicken house, filled with healthy food and feeding treats.

“Organic self-sufficiency is the name of the game with the Cambridges.”
