Prince William and Kate Middleton Became Surprise Bingo Callers for a Nursing Home in Wales
Prince William and Kate Middleton recently surprised a Welsh nursing home by appearing as guest Bingo callers during their game. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went on a video call via Zoom to call out numbers for the surprise Bingo game participated by the nursing home’s residents with their caregivers.
As they drew out each numbered balls, they also used traditional Bingo phrases corresponding to the numbers. When Kate drew the number 55, she said that its expression, “five and five, snake’s alive”, may excite George, the royal couple’s first-born. This might hint that the 6-year-old prince may be interested in snakes. Being third in line to the British throne can’t stop him from developing a liking to critters like every other boy his age.
This is not the first time the 37-year-old Duke and the 38-year-old Duchess opened up about their kids’ hobbies and interests. The doting parents frequently share what George likes doing and what he is learning in school, especially when they attend royal engagements with children.
In 2019, Kate revealed that George was learning about outer space. William has also talked about his eldest child’s fondness for playing with tractors. Kate most recently shared that George gets jealous of Princess Charlotte’s school work. She said that he wants to do all of his 5-year-old sister’s projects. Little George may prefer making spider sandwiches over literacy work, and we can’t blame him.
William and Kate continued drawing numbers throughout the Zoom game and eventually asked the elderly participants if they are drawing the numbers badly. The royal couple then spoke to the residents virtually right after the game.
Before they started the game, William and Kate had a little chat with the nursing home’s staff members present during the Zoom call. They talked about the impact of the coronavirus and what they have been going through because of the COVID-19 pandemic. If there was something good that came out of this crisis, Prince William said that it would have to be the growing appreciation and acknowledgment for the social care sector.
Amid the quarantine, the Cambridges have been staying at Anmer Hall, their country home, together with their three children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and 2-year-old Prince Louis. Even though their activities have been limited, William and Kate continue to engage with different groups and sectors critical during this public health crisis. They have recently been focusing on elderly care facilities—both residents and staff—and how they are coping during the pandemic.
The royal couple has been reaching out to other sectors as well. They also recently had a Zoom call with five volunteers of text crisis line Shout to celebrate their first anniversary in the United Kingdom and thank them for their service. The group has been helping concerned callers cope during the pandemic.
