Kate Middleton returned to public royal duties this week alongside Prince William, after taking a break during the holidays. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took part in a virtual chat on Wednesday, and shared an image from the video call—and revealed a peek inside their home in the process.
As the royal couple were confirmed to be at Anmer Hall, their country home in Norfolk, just last Saturday (their kids threw a tea party for Kate's birthday, naturally), and the U.K. is currently in lockdown, it can be safely assumed that Will and Kate were taking part in the video call from there.
The background shows a cream couch, topped with decorative pillows, as well as a couple plants and a table, on which the Cambridges appear to have placed a couple family photos. The duo has also arranged decorative porcelain plates on their wall—hardly a surprise, as the Windsors famously love them some porcelain.
The aim of the call was for the royal couple to learn about the counseling and bereavement support being provided to help essential workers amid the pandemic. National charity Hospice U.K. launched a helpline called Just 'B' to aid frontline workers cope with loss and trauma in March 2020, in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Through their Royal Foundation's COVID-19 Response Fund, the Duke and Duchess have partnered with NHS England and NHS Improvement and the Department of Health and Social Care to help fund the helpline.
During their meeting, Will and Kate heard from Just 'B' counselors as well as NHS staff who've benefitted from the helpline's services.
