Earlier this week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took part in a Zoom call with staff from Hospice UK’s Just “B” counselling and bereavement support line. Kate Middleton and Prince William spoke with frontline healthcare workers about the work they’ve been doing to support vulnerable people during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly as many have been facing bereavement, or have found themselves working in extremely challenging roles.

Duchess Kate and Prince William conducted the video meeting from their home, as the United Kingdom is in the midst of another nationwide lockdown. Kate recently celebrated her 39th birthday in Norfolk, at the family’s Anmer Hall residence, according to People. As a result, it seems likely that the couple’s Zoom meeting took place at Anmer Hall, with the Cambridges giving fans a glimpse at their home decor.

In the video, Kate and William can be seen sitting on a cream-colored couch, with their surroundings decorated in neutral colors. Decorative plates adorn the walls behind them, along with an ornate mirror. Plants line a side table, and a photo of Prince George can be seen in the background. Duchess Kate rests on floral cushions in the cozy, and carefully decorated, home.
