Prince William Gave Fans a Sneak Peek Inside His Home Office (& We Spy a Special Coffee Mug)
Prince William gave fans a small (and we mean minuscule) glimpse into his personal, at-home workspace— and we got a look of HRH’s coffee mug in the process.
On Tuesday, Kensington Palace shared a video montage on Instagram featuring clips of NHS workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic over the last year. The video also included bits and pieces from Will’s personal conversations with healthcare staff. “To the medical staff, porters, cleaners, volunteers, pharmacists, administrators and all those working across the NHS—thank you for everything that you do,” part of the caption read.
Per Kensington Palace, over the last twelve months, the Duke of Cambridge has spoken to more than 300 staff and volunteers across the U.K. throughout various NHS facilities. The conversations included one-on-one phone calls and video chats.
Of course, while the main portion of the video was packed with clips of the NHS, we couldn’t help but focus on the very beginning, which showed off the duke’s home office—specifically his desk.
The first thing we noticed was that Will was conducting the chat via an iPad rather than a computer or a cell phone. To the left of the screen was a telephone and a gold lamp. However, we almost missed one tiny item—the mug sitting on the desk. Luckily, Hello! Magazine had all of the details.
Per the outlet, the mug included the phrase, “Saving lives at sea since 1824,” and appears to be from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), a charity that saves lives at sea around the coasts of the United Kingdom. The organization is actually one close to William’s heart. Not only is Queen Elizabeth patron but the 39-year-old royal also worked closely with lifeboat crews in his time as an RAF search and rescue pilot.
We guess even royals have their go-to coffee mugs.
