Princess Kate forced to miss out on school activity due to injured finger

Princess of Wales visits HMP High Down in Surrey

The Princess of Wales was unable to take part in a group activity while visiting a primary school in Hereford with Prince William on Thursday as she revealed she is still having trouble with her fingers.

Kate was first pictured with two fingers on her right hand taped together on Tuesday, on a visit to HMP High Down in Surrey, which she explained had been caused while trampolining with her three children.

Yesterday the royal couple were at Madley Primary School to learn about their prioritising of outdoor learning in order to enhance the mental and physical wellbeing of their pupils.

However Kate was sadly not able to take part in all the outdoor lessons due to her injury, as she could not wear the safety gloves required for some log sawing.

William donned safety goggles and gloves to saw through his log, while Kate had to assist by holding the wood steady for him.

She said: “I can’t even put that on because I’ve got two fingers stuck together!”

William was able to get stuck in though, and also tried his hand at whittling, with 10-year-old Jake giving him some tips on how to use the knife.

The heir to the throne admired his young assistant’s handiwork, saying of a stick Jake had whittled himself: “Is this yours? It’s brilliant.”

The Prince and Princess looked thrilled to be helping out with making dens and preparing food around a campfire with the schoolchildren.

The group sat under a canopy in the forest as they prepared apple, cinnamon and sugar skewers to toast on a fire.

Kate said: “It’s like a healthy marshmallow. It always tastes so much better whenever you cook something on the fire.

“I’ve seen 1000 marshmallows around the fire but I’ve never seen a sugar-dipped apple. I’m going to try this with my kids.”

William added that it “smelled delicious”, as they were informed how the children learn to start building and maintaining the fire once they get into Year 6.

The Princess praised the school for its efforts to teach children about the outdoors, saying: “These are really good skills to learn, to be able to keep warm, to feed yourselves.

“Is it nice learning here? It’s so peaceful, isn’t it? I could stay here all afternoon.”

Pupils at the school attend outdoor activity sessions every week to learn about awareness of the environment, conservation and woodland management.
