The Duke of Cambridge spread around him around George, Charlotte and Louis as he praised the efforts of young people fighting online bullying with charities to promote the legacy of his mother Diana, the Princess of Wales.
William said he was “heartbroken” to hear how abuse on the Internet had affected the lives of teenage ambassadors at The Diana Awards, when he spoke to the group on the occasion of Anti-Bullying Week.
The Diana Award, founded in memory of the princess, and her belief that young people have the power to change the world has trained more than 35,000 young people as anti-bullying ambassadors to help victims of school and community.
The duo were surprised by an unannounced appearance in a video call praising their work and what appears to be a living room in Apartment 1A, where they shared a four-story property with wife Kate Middleton, and their children. Seven, George, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two.
While William and Kate were photographed in a few rooms, including Obama’s famous drawing room in 2016, it’s still not uncommon to get a glimpse of where the Cambridges are.
The photos have been closely reviewed, which appeared earlier in Kate’s video call, revealing how the Cambridges have adopted a more traditional approach to decoration and, like many parents, proudly keep pictures of their children.

William said: ‘It’s just awful and you people move a lot to hear how you want to help others and make sure it doesn’t happen to anyone else.
‘This is the most important thing, you understand that it will not defeat you and you want to make sure that others do not suffer the same way.
‘But I am very sorry that you have felt this situation and these words. It’s heartbreaking to hear how much it affected your schooling, your life and things like that.
‘Obviously you all accepted it and beat it, which is great. Because it – and, unfortunately, it can – climbs on too many people and some of them can’t get through. “
Despite the closure of most schools this year due to Covid-9, the charity’s anti-bullying ambassadors say the abuse has only been transferred online.
The Duchess of Cambridge gives a look at a photo display of the same Kensington Palace as previously illustrated
The Duchess of Cambridge was seen in front of the same photos, although they were rearranged.
Rose Agnew of Warwick, Jude Bedford, 16, of Cambridge, Pige Kane, 14, of Norwich and Isabel Broderick, 15, of the West Midlands shared their experiences with Duke.
They were invited to join a video conversation on Thursday but have no idea what it will be like with the future king. ‘No way, no way,’ Rose exclaimed happily.
Laughing, William replied: ‘Well, at least one of you recognized me. The other three are not sure either … ‘
Isabelle told him that after being targeted by an anonymous online account, she fell into social anxiety that threatened to reveal fake personal and sensitive information about her towards the end of the 8th year.
He never found out who was responsible and it took him two years to tell his mother.
William said: ‘It’s a lot to live for, that stress, that anxiety, that stress. It is terrible for you to live so long. ‘
Paige was targeted by a group of boys who edited her online photos and called her ‘fat’ or ‘ugly’, while Jude said he was annoyed with her choice.
Suffering from racism and other forms of intimidation, Rose and her school work were badly seen, she told William why she had become an ambassador.
“I joined the Diana Award and applied because I know how it should be raped and it’s a feeling I want to try and prevent people from trying as much as possible,” she said.
‘When people hate you for a reason you can’t control and you can’t change, it makes you feel so powerless.’
He told the Duke that every school should have an inhumane ambassador and that having a peer-to-peer mentor when he was targeted would have a profound effect on his life.
When William asked if the threat had worsened because of the lockdown and why everyone had spent so much time on video calls and social media before returning to schools in September, Rose suggested that it would have been worse if people hadn’t confronted anymore.
“Usually when people were rocked, what was said was a lot worse, because it went online, since our whole lives went online and went with the threat,” he said.
