Like others in the UK and around the world, Kate Middleton is working from home in the midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19). As Prince Charles recovers in Scotland after being tested positive for the virus, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are doing their part to model good social distancing behavior from their own home offices.
On March 28, Kate Middleton and Prince William shared a rare glimpse of their living quarters via an Instagram post inviting subscribers to prioritize their mental health in these uncertain times. “Self-isolation and social distancing can pose enormous challenges to our mental health – for the past few weeks, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been in regular contact with organizations and sponsors to understand the issues facing they are facing in these difficult times, “says the legend. .
Of course, making sure people have the support they need right now is extremely important, but I’m not going to lie … it’s also very exciting to take a look inside their excavations ( see William’s printer)! The images may have been taken on the same day that Middleton and William visited NHS first responders because the Duchess wears the same gorgeous dusty pink costume (no sweatpants and old hooded moments for these two, it seems).
Let’s be honest, the layout of Middleton’s home office is just a little more sophisticated than ours. Still, we love the classic vibe it has, especially the book collection. A royal fan pointed out that the novels appear to be bound editions by Penguin Classics and include titles like A Christmas Carol, Sense and sensitivity, Mansfield Park, Great expectations, The Wuthering Heights, and The Odyssey. Before the pandemic, the Duchess was spotted in Ireland to buy books, so at least we know she has a lot of reading material lying around.
The English major in me is very impressed – and it may just be the thing to inspire a little redecoration as we face another week of isolation.
