Luckily, our curiosity to see the inside of Prince William and Kate’s home has been satisfied just a little, thanks to a recent post on the Kensington Royal Instagram account.
On Saturday, the couple, whose main residence is Kensington Palace, shared a glimpse at their office, as they showed their support to a Public Health England initiative to boost the nation’s mental health during the coronavirus pandemic.
In the first photo, Prince William is speaking on the phone with Paul Farmer, the CEO of the charity Mind, on March 18. The second, shows Duchess Kate on the phone, on her desk, talking to Catherine Roche, the CEO of Place2Be, on March 19; the same day they visited NHS 111 call centre in Croydon
Prince William and Kate said: “The last few weeks have been anxious and unsettling for everyone. We have to take time to support each other and find ways to look after our mental health. It is great to see the mental health sector working together with the NHS to help people keep on top of their mental wellbeing. By pulling together and taking simple steps each day, we can all be better prepared for the times ahead.”
Announced on Sunday by Mental Health Minister Nadine Dorries, who was herself diagnosed with COVID-19, the new guidance gives helpful tips encouraging people to maintain digital contact with loved ones, learn new hobbies, and follow regular routines and sleep schedules.
Health Minister Nadine says: “When I discovered I had coronavirus I felt anxious and scared. For those who already suffer from anxiety or other mental health issues, this may present new and difficult challenges. It’s imperative that we stay home if we are to beat coronavirus and save lives. I know how important it is that people have support to look after their mental health and this guidance will be of huge value.”
