The Princess of Wales was unable to participate in a group activity while visiting a primary school in Hereford with Prince William on Thursday due to finger problems.
Kate was originally photographed with two fingers on her right hand taped together during a visit to HMP High Down in Surrey on Tuesday, which she stated was caused by trampolining with her three children.
The royal couple visited Madley Primary School yesterday to learn about their emphasis on outdoor learning to improve the emotional and physical well-being of their students.
Kate, on the other hand, was unable to participate in all of the outdoor classes due to her injury, as she could not wear the protective gloves required for some wood sawing.
William put on safety goggles and gloves to saw through his log, and Kate had to help him by keeping the wood steady.
She said: “I can’t even put that on because I’ve got two fingers stuck together!”
William, on the other hand, was allowed to get buried in and try his hand at whittling, with 10-year-old Jake offering him some pointers on how to handle the knife.
The heir to the throne praised his young assistant’s craftsmanship, asking of a stick Jake had whittled himself, “Is this yours? It’s brilliant.”
The Prince and Princess appeared delighted to be assisting the students in building dens and preparing supper around a campfire.
The party sat in the forest under a canopy, preparing apple, cinnamon, and sugar skewers to toast over 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.”
As they were taught about how the youngsters learn to start creating and keeping the fire once they reach Year 6, William added that it “smelled delicious.”
“These are really good skills to learn, to be able to keep warm, to feed yourselves,” the Princess said of the school’s attempts to teach children about the outdoors.
“Is it nice learning here? It’s so peaceful, isn’t it? I could stay here all afternoon.”
Every week, students at the school participate in outdoor activity sessions to learn about environmental awareness, conservation, and woodland management.
