Video Of Kate Middleton And Prince William Showing Their Luxurious Home Angers Some Royal Fans For This Reason

Prince William Kate Middleton Residence

Kate Middleton and Prince William have been bending the rules quite a bit these days — they gave a rare glimpse into their home — some royal fans loved it, others slammed them for flaunting their massive wealth.

The royal couple has been in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic at their home in Norfolk, and as a result, they have not been able to pay much attention to the Kensington Palace in recent times.

Reports indicate that the palace has remained empty since the global health crisis started, although it has over twenty rooms with plenty of areas to spare for several people.

The two have decided to give their followers a glimpse into what their lives are like, delivering a candid tour of the palace and going through it in style.

The footage showed that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and her husband enjoy antique furniture, fancy paintings, and lamps but also have a liking for modern styles, and the home is decorated very lavishly.

Self-isolation and social distancing can pose huge challenges to our mental health — in recent weeks The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been in regular contact with organisations and patronages to understand the issues they are facing during this difficult time. Last week ☎️ The Duke spoke to @mindcharity CEO Paul Farmer, and The Duchess spoke to Catherine Roche, CEO of @_place2be. Today Public Health England has published new guidance to help support people during the COVID-19 outbreak, and updated its world-leading Every Mind Matters platform, with specific advice on maintaining good mental wellbeing during the outbreak; take a look at our Story or visit the link in our bio 📱 to find out more. Speaking about the new guidance, The Duke and Duchess said: • “It is great to see the mental health sector working together with the NHS to help people keep on top of their mental well-being. • By pulling together and taking simple steps each day, we can all be better prepared for the times ahead”. • The Government has also announced a grant for @MindCharity to help fund their services for people struggling with their mental wellbeing during this time.

This prompted some mixed responses from the royal fans, with some noting that the home’s high value made it even more of a waste to keep it unoccupied.

This royal supporter praised Kate’s choice of home decor. The person wrote: “Beautiful home, What a wonderful job this beautiful lady does for so many in her charity work. She is so in touch with the people and the work that goes into them. Bravo Duchess Catherine x.”

The pair was laughed at by this commenter: “I kind of expected a better cord control situation by the printer for a palace. 🤓”

Kate and William also received this message: “My God, that is having a lot of money and a big home and meanwhile, I need a computer for my son so he can do his homework 😭😭.”

However, in the end, it is not like members of the royal family would give up a luxurious lifestyle for any reason.

Kate and William, Duke of Cambridge, do not seem to be missing any of their luxuries at their current home either, and the two have been able to deal with the pandemic more or less without any issues.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a special performance of Dear Evan Hansen @dehwestend, held in aid of The Royal Foundation. The musical @dearevanhansen has been credited with helping to start important conversations about mental health between parents and teenagers. The issue of mental health is a key priority for The Royal Foundation which works to tackle the stigma and encourage more people to talk openly about their mental health. @GiveUsAShoutInsta, a free and confidential 24/7 UK text messaging helpline that supports people in crisis and was developed by The Royal Foundation, is one of four not-for-profit partners of the show which provide mental health resources to audiences and beyond.

Of course, the situation is still ongoing, and it will take a while for the dust to settle.

It is possible that the royal family might decide to move somewhere else to deal with the effects of isolation at some point, especially if the quarantine goes on for a longer time.
