We’re in the midst of another royal era where, I’m sure, we’ll be told that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are Zooming their fingers to the bone. Since before Christmas, William and Kate have been in lockdown at Anmer Hall. This is after their Covid Choo Choo superspreader tour, after which (no coincidence!) many parts of the UK went into strict lockdown protocols. So Will and Kate are unable to be keen out in the open air, breathing their keenness on children and frontline workers. Poor sausages have to do two Zoom calls a week and I’m sure we’ll be hearing about it for MONTHS.
Anyway, the Duchess of Cambridge did a video this week where she thanked NHS staff from he University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, specifically the nurses. It’s a nice thing to do and I’m sure the staffers loved chatting with Kate, but most of the headlines today are about Kate’s hair and styling. Ooof.
Her hair does look nice? I prefer it without all of the bells and whistles and sausage curls. A clip of this conversation was posted on the Kensington Palace social media accounts, but I much prefer the full video which was released, Kate comes across much better. You can see that she’s consulting notes and talking points, but she does seem to be engaged in the conversation. It’s also notable to see… um, where in Anmer Hall these Zoom calls are taking place. The Cambridges really are keen to copy that other couple, you know? Kate especially liked the couch set-up that Meghan was using for her videos and Zoom calls.
Last week, the Cambridges did another Zoom call to launch a Bereavement support line. This video is poorly edited, my God. Good cause, but yeesh.
Bereavement is never easy, especially for frontline workers during these unprecedented times.
It is so important to have services like Just 'B', who provide a listening ear for those coping with the loss of colleagues, loved ones, and people they care for. pic.twitter.com/5pmr0IiNDw
