Prince William is quite the handyman.
The Royal showed off his wilderness skills and proved he’s quite the outdoorsman while working with a group of children to pitch a tent blindfolded. The team-building exercise took place on St David’s Day, this Wednesday, in Wales to help boost children’s confidence and resilience in support of an award campaign in William’s name.
The task was no easy feat, but with clear co-operation and at-tent-iveness, the 34-year-old Royal and his team of youngsters got the job done. “Ta-da, look at that! Good job guys. Amazing!” he told his team.
And the group completed their exercise on the Welsh countryside in impressive time, needing only 10 minutes to pitch the tent. His team imagined returning to camp at nighttime and having to put up their tent in the dark. “It’s nice to be here in the sunshine,” the prince quipped.
That wasn’t the only responsibility Prince William had on St. David’s Day. His first job was to help six-year-old kids from Bishopstone Primary School construct towers with marshmallows and drinking straws. It seems William enjoyed his time, maintaining a cheery demeanour all day. “Look at that! Brilliant!” he exclaimed as the tower took shape.
Outside Llanfoist Fawr Primary School, William took part in yet another team-building exercise by moving a soccer ball across the playground using ropes.
The Prince William Award was organized by one of his charities, SkillForce. The charity works with schools to transform lives through motivational mentoring and inspiring educational programs. William met with students who participated in the award during its debut year.
It has been a very busy week for William and wife Duchess Kate. The couple joined Queen Elizabeth to celebrate UK-India ties at a party at the palace on Monday. Kate then visited with families of sick children in London on Tuesday while William also carried out an investiture on behalf of the Queen that day.
