William, Kate & Harry spend day at BAFTA clay modelling & throwing wellies

Today, Prince William, Catherine and Prince Harry spent the day at BAFTA, and tried their hand at a few unusual tasks…

The Royal trio were there to attend the charities forum, which supports a number of their patronages, including the Art Room, Place2Be and WellChild. The bi-annual meeting discusses how the Royals could best to support the charities.

The Duke of Cambridge has been president of BAFTA since 2010, supported Aardman’s work, including Shaun the Sheep and his film, during his tour of China earlier this year.

Following a talk from the Aardman team about animation, the Duchess was called up onto the stage to help with a green-screen animation herself. She and a young girl carried a large trunk across the stage, which children had ‘got into’ earlier, via CGI.

Her husband William shouted ‘make Catherine do a silly walk’ as she undertook her task, applauded by the audience for her acting skills.

Harry, William and Kate were then presented with a model scene made by some youngsters.

William appeared very happy with his gift, remarking: “That’s amazing. How long did the sheep take you to make? Very impressive. They are grazing away very happily.”

Prince Harry was also impressed: “I know exactly where I am going to put this.”

Next for the trio was a modelling class, creating their own Shaun the Sheep alongside children. Some ill youngsters were also there, watching the activity, unable to take part due to their conditions, but Harry made sure they were part of the group, showing them his model and asking their opinion.

Welly wanging came next! The Royals had a go a throwing a welly at a target to knock it off. Harry missed, grunting in frustration, while Catherine’s fell miserably short. William, however, nailed it, and knocked the target off.
