8 breathtaking royal Zoom backgrounds: from Kate Middleton and Prince William to Prince Charles and Camilla

The coronavirus pandemic has revealed more of the royals' homes than ever before

Bridie Wilkins

The royal family has unveiled more areas of their homes than ever before amid the coronavirus pandemic. Where their living rooms, dining rooms, home offices (and everywhere else inside) were once entirely private spaces, they have now been revealed for the world to see. Our thanks for such an exciting time goes to Zoom, the virtual platform that everyone who is anyone has been using to keep in touch with the outside world while working from home.

There is also a floor lamp with a gold base and a cream shade.

Prince Charles isolated at his home in Scotland, Birkhall, with his wife Camilla (until they made the decision to become the first royals to return to Clarence House in London). During his time at Birkhall, he joined several Zoom calls from his home office. The regal space features cream walls with endless bookcases and shelves, as well as a series of framed photographs of his family and friends.

Prince William

Prince William joined London's Air Ambulance Charity, of which he is patron, to discuss staying mentally fit whilst working from home. He sat in a room at his country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk, where he and his family isolated during the pandemic (and continue to do so). It's decorated with bottle green walls, and features a traditional wooden fireplace, a large painting in a gilded gold frame and two white doors with coordinating architraves around the ceiling.
