Like many people across the country, the royal family has continued their dedicated work from home as the world grapples with the coronavirus crisis.
And the firm adapted remarkably quickly to the disaster, sharing snapshots as Prince Charles, 71, opened Nightingale Hospital in London from his office at Birkhall Residence in Aberdeenshire and Prince William, 37 years old, and Kate Middleton, 38 years old, phoned their clients to offer with the support of Kensington Palace.
But now experts have revealed what the makeshift offices of the royal family reveal about their work practices and their personalities.
Interior architects Katharine Pooley and Nadia McCowan Hill told FEMAIL how Prince William’s simple yet bright office reflected his “focused” personality, how Camilla’s “artistic personality” appeared in his “busy” office.
They also noted how Kate Middleton adapted her workspace to help her balance work with motherhood, while Prince Charles’ crowded room showed an ability to “stand out from the distraction.”
Kate Middleton “balances motherhood and duty”
Experts told FEMAIL what the royal family’s home work facilities reveal about their personalities, revealing how the Duchess of Cambridge had “adapted” the space to help her find a balance between work and motherhood
Kate Middleton started working at home last month at Kensington Palace before the Duchess and her family moved to their home in Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
The Duchess shared photos while sitting at her desk and phoned sponsorships across the country to offer support.
Katherine revealed that Kate “clearly” balances motherhood with the royal functions of working in space.
The interior designer revealed; “The room is clearly designed to have children around her while she works; there’s a high chair in the corner, the table is loaded with children’s books, and there’s a soft sofa that seems perfect for her young family to jump on and make themselves comfortable.
Meanwhile, Nadia, Wayfair’s resident advisor, said the elegant literary classics on her desk demonstrated “Kate’s appeal of calm and timeless style.”
She added: “A classic white sofa combined with a miniature chair shows that Kate’s office is perfectly integrated into her family life and that her family comes first.”
Prince William stripped to stay focused
Meanwhile, interior designer Katherine revealed how Prince William’s “stripped back office” revealed a “strong work ethic” and a clear determination to stay focused.
Like his wife Kate, the Duke of Cambridge shared photos of his office at Kensington Palace last month when he started working from home in the midst of the crisis.
Katherine revealed how the stripped-down office space of the royal revealed a “strong work ethic,” noting that her office was almost completely bare except for the most part, “as telephone, printer and necessary. “
She added that the balance between contemporary furniture with classic features and tons of natural light “echoed someone who is focused and determined.”
Meanwhile, Nadia described the implementation as “productive and efficient” with little distraction indicating a focus on “getting the job done”.
Prince Charles’ “highly competent” ability to work anywhere
Katherine said Prince Charles’s “improvisation desk” reflected a dedication to work and a determination to work “wherever he could.”
Prince Charles’s shared video earlier this week gave royal fans a rare look inside the royal’s Scottish home.
The clip, posted on Clarence House’s Instagram account, shows the 71-year-old Prince of Wales seated at his desk in Birkhall, his home on Queen’s Balmoral estate in Aberdeenshire.
Katherine revealed that the establishment of Prince Charles seemed to show the royal’s dedication to the role and the ability to work anywhere: “His work from domestic space in general seems to mimic that of much the British public; work from wherever he can, do everything he can to do his job fully.
Meanwhile, Nadia added, “Pinging emails from the couch or dining table will reveal to you that someone who is very capable and can distract himself from distraction.
The installation of “Prince Charles” is the perfect example of the “improvisation desk”, which is surrounded by family photos and sentimental memories to create a familiar and supportive environment.
“The layered patterns and textures enhance the feeling of intimacy, while the simple piano provides a glimpse of the Prince’s musical nature. “
Camilla’s “artistic nature” comes out in an “occupied room”.
Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cornwall’s office in her Aberdeenshire home offered a glimpse of an “artistic personality” and gave “a sense of activity and productivity”
The Duchess of Cornwall shared a snapshot while working from home at the Royal’s Scottish Home earlier today.
Katherine noted that the “sense of occupation” could be an indication of the royal’s attitude to his duty during this period.
She said: “Camilla’s work from her home makes her feel extremely productive; there’s a real sense of activity in this room, with a lot of paperwork on her desk and the shelves full to the brim.
Katherine continued, “Like Prince Charles, she has many family photos in her work from home – again emphasizing the importance of family during this time.
Meanwhile, Nadia noted that the “piles of paperwork and stationery living in harmony among personal treasures” alongside personal cards and drawings revealed an “artistic personality.”
She continued, “A well-stocked library provides a characteristic setting, as well as a source of inspiration and relaxation,” adding that “the fresh spring flowers keeping his Royal Highness connected to nature.”
