On their Kensington Royal Instagram account, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a few behind the scenes images of their palace offices. The couple were seen separately speaking on the phone — with the duke reaching out to CEO Paul Farmer of Mind Charity and the duchess conversing with Catherine Roche of Place 2Be. The couple are launching new initiatives supporting mental health during the coronavirus pandemic.

For the photograph believed to have been taken on the day the Cambridges visited an NHS call centre, the mom of three wore a dark rose Marks & Spencer pantsuit.

The images also reveal Penguin UK Clothbound Classics, designed by artist Coralie Bickford-Smith on Kate’s desk. Thanks to Emma4AboutRoyal.
