Prince William Pitches a Tent While Blindfolded With the Help of School Children: Watch!
By Rachel McRady
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 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.

“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.”
