The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took a trip back to school on Friday to raise awareness for the Heads Together campaign, and had some fun chatting to the students and their parents about their own childhoods, with Prince William revealing that he stills feels like he's 16.

The second-in-line to the throne joked that he still acts like a teenager, saying: "Sometimes I still feel like I am 16, to be honest sometimes I still act like I am 16," while Kate agreed, saying: "I still think your 16," to which he agreed, telling the fellow parents: "Yes Catherine often tells me that."

He also offered students his job so he could go back to school, saying: "Do you really like it? I was always dreadful at it at school. We should swap places - I can come back to school and you can do my job."

The Prince showed his fun side by chatting to the students about their interests, engaging in friendly rivalry when one boy mentioned that football helps him with his problems and that he is a Chelsea football supporter, leading the 34-year-old to say: "Chelsea? Just when I thought we could get along!"

The couple joked with the students and parents

The couple visited the school, which works with one of Kate's charities, Place 2 Be, and offers counselling to help children feel supported emotionally as well as academically.

Prince William spoke about how important he felt this was for his own children in a blog post, writing: "Catherine and I have young children who will be going through this themselves in a short period of time, and like all parents we will want to make sure that our children are not just able to achieve their academic potential at school but are also happy and emotionally supported."
