We have all had to adapt to working from home and have lost count of the number of virtual meetings we have had to log on to.

Even the Duchess of Cambridge hasn’t been able to escape the laptop camera, as the pandemic has forced her to take her engagements online.

In recent months the mum-of-three has been pictured in the midst online virtual engagements and she has a rather nifty set up - not to mention great WFH style.

From a quick glance it may seem like the royal, 39, has propped her MacBook on a table and sat in front of it, but that has not always been the case.

Look a little closer and you can see the legs of a laptop stand her computer is perched on top of.

In a recent call with teachers from Ribbon Academy, in County Durham, during Children’s Mental Health Week on 2 February, Kate discussed the work they have been doing to support children and families.

Just over a week prior, the duchess spoke with parents of children who attend Roe Green Junior School in Brent, London, to discuss their experiences of homeschooling amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In both calls the adjustable table can be seen in images taken in the duchess’ home office.

Although it is not known the exact laptop desk the duchess uses, there is an affordable model that looks very similar on Amazon.

The Lavolta Laptop Table Desk is suitable for use with laptops measuring up to 16 inches in length and weighing up to 15kg.

It is a lightweight compact device, which folds up to make it easy to carry.

Most importantly, this desk is adjustable and has auto locking joints, which allow you to rotate the table by 360 degrees, so you can get the perfect angle, as well as comfort on your next call.

Not only is the Laptop Table useful for work purposes, but come the weekend it can double up as a tray for breakfast (or reading) in bed.

This design has garnered over one thousand glowing reviews on Amazon. One reads: “I love this. I have problems with tech neck and the best position for me to work in is standing up. This lovely table desk feels good quality, works a treat and it looks so much nicer than a scabby old box. The adjustability means my husband, who is almost a foot taller than me, will be able to use it.”

Another added: “I was looking for something which would enable me to use my laptop comfortably when sitting on a sofa or in a chair. This lap desk offers a multitude of adjustments making it suitable for all sorts of uses and positions. Each 'leg' is adjustable through 360 degrees.

“I found it a little fiddly at first to make the adjustments but having got used to the way it adjusts I now find it very quick to adjust to suit whatever I am doing.”
