When asked to rate her maths ability, the duchess gave herself the score of minus five.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, opened up about her life in lockdown during a recent video call with fellow parents, and spoke of the difficulty of always pleasing her children Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2.

The mother of three took part in a discussion with three parents whose children attend Roe Green Junior School in Kingsbury, northwest London, alongside head teacher Melissa Loosemore.

As the conversation moved on, talks also turned to how everyone had been finding the third lockdown and Kate again wrote a word giving an insight into her life raising three mini royals, when she penned "exhausting" as her answer.

"Kate would certainly trim George and Charlotte's hair as she is very competent and they are used to home haircuts", a source told The Sun.

During a video call with a group of parents Catherine also joked about her three children recoiling in "horror" when she had to cut their hair.

The Duchess of Cambridge has admitted that it's been hard to manage being a parent on top of every other task during the pandemic.

And one of the challenges she faced was becoming her family's hairdresser.

"We've had to become a teacher - and I think, personally, I feel pulled in so many different directions and you try your best with everything, but at the end of the day I do feel exhausted", she said.

"I think every parent is breathing a sigh of relief that school has started again", he said when schools in the United Kingdom first went back.

In another exercise, the parents were asked to write down who had been their support during the pandemic.

Kate has spent most of lockdown at home at Amner Hall in Norfolk with William and the children, and says her husband was her biggest support throughout. "That's pretty good! I am obviously right at the bottom of the class", commented the Duchess, with the other parents explaining they had all improved a lot during lockdown.

Kate Middleton discussed how parents, who already have enough to juggle, now have to wear more hats than ever before, according to People.
