Prince William praised his wife's artistic skills during a video call with students from Islamabad Model College for Girls.

The royal couple shared a recording of an adorable video call with some of the organisations they met with in Pakistan to mark the anniversary of their visit there in October 2019.

William and Kate guessed right drawings depicting a birthday, recycling, and cricket, and the Duke joked that he was glad the kids had to do the artwork and not him.

We kept our friendship bracelets very safe, so thank you for those.

Following their fun game, Kate asks the students if they appreciate coming back to school now - and sees their friends and teachers.

"I'm very glad you guys are drawing and we're not having to draw", admitted William.

During their in-person visits, they did arts and crafts with the children, played with toys and even enjoyed a game of cricket!

Kate added, "It's not practicing enough".

The duo was also shown friendship bracelets made by a little girl called Minahil Kabeer.

Some village children (pictured) also showed the Duke and Duchess the artwork they made about their memories of the visit a year ago, including drawings and friendship bracelets.

During their visit to the government-run school a year ago, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duchess met with sixth-form students from kindergarten. During their visit, they learnt more about the Teach for Pakistan program, which is modelled on the UK's successful "Teach First" scheme.

During this call, the teachers talked about how the staff had transformed their activities with the Duke and Duchess, when the school was closed by providing students and WhatsApp packs to the school between March and September.

Royal correspondent Rebecca English added that the two also spoke with students in Lahore's SOS Village. During that conversation, William and Kate learned about how the village has come together to help teach children protective measures and combat the spread of COVID-19 through special sessions led by doctors and medical staff.

Established in 1977, SOS Children's Village provides a home and family structure to over 150 young girls and boys, and promotes the development of children into happy, confident and resilient adults.

William and Kate visited the village twice during their tour where they took part in activities such as cricket and handicrafts, and attended a birthday party for one of the village sponsored children.
