Here, all the royal news you need to know for the week of September 23, 2021.

  • Last week, Prince William shared a video on Instagram of himself sitting down at a typewriter (yes, you read that correctly) to pen a special forward for the new book Earthshot: How to Save Our Planet. In the video, the Duke of Cambridge gave followers a glimpse into his home office as well as his unique typing style. Turns out, the 39-year-old types with his pointer fingers only.
  • We learned recently that Kate Middleton uses a certain phrase with her kids in public to signal when they are acting out. The Duchess of Cambridge urges her children—Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 3—to calm down when they act up by telling them, “Let's take a break.”
  • This week, it was revealed that Prince Philip's final will and testament will be kept private for a very long time. A decision from the court states that the late Duke of Edinburgh's will shall remain sealed for 90 years in order to protect the monarchy's “dignity.” Judge Andrew McFarlane stated the reasoning behind this decision, saying, “The degree of publicity that publication would be likely to attract would be very extensive and wholly contrary to the aim of maintaining the dignity of the Sovereign.”

  • Kate Middleton recently visited the newly reopened RAF Air Cadets’ Windermere Training Centre in the lake district of Northern England. During her outing, the 39-year-old royal, who is the Honorary Air Commandant of the Royal Air Force Cadets, accompanied a group of trainees for some rock climbing, hiking and bike riding “to test the outdoor terrain.”
