Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, Prince William and Kate Middleton are conducting their royal duties virtually. And in their latest video, they gave their followers a sneak peek into their country home.
On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge conducted a video chat with the children of medical professionals who are helping battle COVID-19. The duo made a call to Casterton Primary Academy, a school in northern England where the kids of essential workers are being cared for during these difficult times. During their chat, they met with students attending the academy (who showed off their Easter-themed projects and drawings of their loved ones), as well as the staff, whom they thanked for their hard work and dedication to the children.
“Well done, honestly, to you and everyone who’s in during this time,” Middleton said in the video. “It must be such a relief for all the parents who are key workers to know that the normality is there for their children—they’ve got the structure and they’ve got a safe place for them to be, so really really well done to all of you.”
While the call itself gave us a closer look at the duo as caregivers, it also offered a behind-the-scenes look inside the duke and duchess’s home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk (where they are said to be social distancing, though they have yet to confirm). The three-minute clip doesn’t show too much of the home, however, we still noticed the simple aesthetic of the room, including neutral colors such as beige, cream and white.
There’s one large piece of furniture behind Prince William’s shoulder. And while we’re not exactly sure what it is, we love the beautiful teal that adds a pop of color to the room. Other design elements visible include a small photograph on the wall (a beach scene maybe?) and a small portion of Middleton’s wooden chair.
Last month, the duke and duchess also gave us a look inside their home offices at Kensington Palace, which, of course, were just as elegant.
Hopefully, more virtual engagements will mean more glimpses into the couple’s royal home.
