"That is why it is so wonderful that after nearly two years away, you have recently returned to school and been reunited with your teachers and friends again."

She added: "We have rediscovered how important our families are, and just how important our friends are.

"I always think it is the simple things in life that bring the most joy: playing together, chatting to your friends at school, eating meals together, listening to each other's stories. These are the things that bring us together and give meaning to our lives."

Kate had the handy planner

Kate and Prince William were enjoying their first full day in the Bahamas after a royal tour that has seen them visiting other nations like Belize and Jamaica.

The couple had enjoyed glorious Caribbean sunshine for most of their trip, but on Friday they had to brave a torrential downpour as they headed into the primary school in Nassau.

Students from other local schools also gathered for the assembly, which included a school choir performance and a traditional 'Rake n' Shake' Band.

Rake n' Shake music is characterised by the use of a saw tool as the primary instrument and is used to accompany dances such as the Bahamian Quadrille and the heel-toe polka.
