Prince William and Catherine spoke to teachers and students at Casterton Primary Academy in Lancashire, North West England, which remains open to children of key workers, including National Health Service staff.
The couple, who shared the video on the Kensington Palace Twitter account on Wednesday, spoke to children who showed them paintings they had made to their parents and Easter crafts they had created. They also spoke with teachers and school staff.
The royal couple introduced themselves to the children as Catherine and William. Seeing that the children were wearing bunny ears, the royal couple joked that they should have worn theirs. William also mistaken an Easter egg bag created by one of the children for a handbag, to his dismay.
