Putting his daddy skills to good use! Prince William proved he’s more than just a royal during an official event on Wednesday.

The father of two visited a primary school in Wales, where he helped launch the SkillForce Prince William Award. He was greeted by students dressed as red dragons and daffodils – symbols for the British country.

The award is aimed at children aged 6 to 14 and is split into Pioneer, Explorer, and Trailblazer groups based on age.

The Duke of Cambridge met and participated in exercises with students from each group. In the eldest group, the royal was blindfolded and instructed by students who helped him put together an outdoor tent as if he were doing so in the dark.

The program works with 200 schools and impacts more than 60,000 children, and is close to Prince William’s heart.

“I believe an individual’s academic success, wellbeing and mental health depends not only on traditional qualifications,” he said in a speech at the event. “The ability for a child to develop character, courage and resilience to overcome setbacks is something I care deeply about.”
