Prince William's dinnertime problem with George, Charlotte and Louis is so relatable

Prince William and Kate Middleton surprise bingo players at the nursing home

Kate Middleton and Prince William's official Twitter and Instagram are featuring a noticeable change.

The royal couple showed off a new talent Thursday when they stepped in to lead a game of bingo with nursing home residents at Shire Hall Care Home in Cardiff, Wales. "Visit our YouTube page through our story to see more".

William also took the time to praise caregivers for the work they have been doing amid the pandemic, especially those who work with or care for young children.

"One little duck, number two", William says.

As reported in the Express, Kate held up the first ball and announced: "So, the first number is five and eight, 58".

Consultant psychiatrist Frances Doherty, who runs the Beechcroft Regional Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) Inpatient Service, said that while some referral rates had dipped in the short term, she expected them to rise in the future.

Duchess Catherine began the game by calling, "Six and two, tickety-boo".

William and Kate were met with rounds of applause from residents as they called out the bingo numbers but then received some honest feedback after the game from one resident, which they seemed to take in stride.

The royals were stunned by one cheeky resident's remark: "You could've been better". The parents of three heard from members of the care team about the impact of COVID-19 and the challenges that they have faced as a result of the current pandemic.

In absence of their annual event, where Kate showcased the garden previous year, the Royal Horticultural Society is running a whole slate of digital programming from Q&A sessions with gardening advisors to demonstrations and virtual nursery tours. And though Zoom calls have provided some limitations in the way that they work, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have found their own way to put a spin on video chats.

In the calls, the royal couple thanked them "for their tireless efforts as they continue to look after the most vulnerable in our society".
