Kate Middleton said William had eaten all the chocolate before the Easter holidays, while Prince George was on a new favorite TV show.
During a surprise virtual visit to children whose parents are on the front line of coronavirus pandemic, the duke and duchess presented their plans for the holiday.
The young George is likely to be glued to Blue Planet by David Attenborough, whose mom Kate said he “watched a lot”.
While William said in their foyer – which also includes Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – “there will be a lot of chocolate to eat”.
To what his wife joked: “You keep eating it.”
The Cambridges went through a demonstration session at the Casterton Primary Academy in Lancashire yesterday, via video link – much to the surprise of children and staff.
They spent an hour talking to delighted students, William, 37, praising their teachers’ “good spirit of volunteerism from the North”.
During this time, the children showed photos of their parents and the Easter hats and rabbit ears they had made – while asking field questions to the two members of the royal family.
Anita Ghidotti, CEO of the Pendle Education Trust, told the Daily Mail the children asked them who “the most famous person was that they had met”.
The duchess, 38, revealed her older son’s favorite TV show in response to Sir David – although the duke said his favorite characters weren’t really famous.

The staff then wished them a happy Easter, to which Kate made a playful mocker on William’s weakness for chocolate.
The school has remained open since it is near Burnley General Hospital.
It also serves as a hub for Castercliff Primary, Pendle Primary, Colne Primet Academy and West Craven High School – all part of the Pendle Education Trust.
Members of the royal family have heard of the difficulties faced by staff and children, as well as the measures the school is taking to help students and families – including food deliveries and mental health care.
The Duchess said: “For you and everyone who is there during this time, it should be such a relief for all parents who are key workers to know that their children have normalcy and structure, and they have a place sure.”
