On Monday, her mother the Countess of Wessex filmed a video for the royal family's official Twitter and Instagram pages, encouraging fellow mums and dads not to feel alone in their new home-schooling routines amid the coronavirus pandemic. The footage was filmed by Lady Louise and also gave fans a peek into the family's Surrey home.

"For parents and carers, it can be a daunting time to help our children and young people through this period of uncertainty," Sophie began. "But please don't feel alone. Make use of the resources out there and the fantastic digital communities that are sharing them and supporting them. Stay safe and thinking of you all."

Prince Edward and Sophie are also parents to 12-year-old son, James, Viscount Severn.
