The Duchess of Cambridge revealed that her eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, have been set a challenge by their teachers at Thomas's school in Battersea – to learn Dame Vera Lynn's famous wartime anthem We'll Meet Again. Kate and Prince William surprised Second World War veterans at an East Sussex care home with a call by video link on Friday as part of VE Day celebrations. The royal couple listened to the residents as they reminisced about the day the war ended in Europe on 8 May 1945.

During the call, Kate revealed exactly what George and Charlotte have been learning at school. She said: "The school has set all the children a challenge and they're currently trying to learn the lyrics to the song We'll Meet Again... so it's been really lovely having that playing every day." The song has likely taken on a special meaning for George too, as Kate also shared that he is currently learning about WWII. The Duchess added: "George is just starting to learn about the Second World War. He would be really honoured to come and speak to you, so maybe another time George could have a quick chat with you to hear all your stories as well."
