Duchess Kate and Prince William are ringing in the holiday season with some special visits! The royal couple recently embarked on their royal train tour around the United Kingdom, which saw them make a stop at a school in England on Monday to partake in some festive fun!
Kate and William join students and teachers in lesson
Duchess Kate and Prince William paid a visit to Holy Trinity Church of England First School in Berwick-upon-Tweed. As People reports, they joined students and staff in a holiday-themed outdoor lesson. "It's freezing!" William remarked, despite being bundled up in his jacket and scarf.
While Kate and William could be seen enjoying themselves during the festive activity, there was also an important reason behind their visit! That's because as People shares, the royal couple wanted to have the opportunity to personally commend teachers for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.

As People mentions, Duchess Kate and Prince William's school visit wasn't their first stop on Monday! Earlier on in the day, the royal couple were named as patrons of NHS Charities Together at the Scottish Ambulance Service in Edinburgh.
