Carole Middleton has shared a rare glimpse of her office.

The businesswoman, who is the mother of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has got fans in a frenzy after she gave them a glimpse into her place of work.

Carole, along with her husband of 39 years Michael, owns business Party Pieces, an online shop that specialises in decorations and supplies for all types of parties and occasions.

And in honour of the festive season the mum-of-three, who also shares daughter Pippa and son James with husband Michael, has taken to the business’s social media to share a glimpse of her office.

Taking to the Party Pieces Instagram account, Carole shared a festive snap with the retailer’s nearly 15,000 followers that shows her decorating the office’s Christmas tree.

And the former workplace of Duchess Catherine, whose siblings Pippa and James also contributed to the success of the family business, is giving us all the inspiration to do up our own office spaces.

We’re loving the cosy farmhouse vibes of the large open space, complete with wood panelling throughout and a rustic brick wall.

And the real fir Christmas tree decorated with pine cones, coloured lights and glittery gold and silver baubles, looks right at home in the countryside space.

Alongside the adorable snap, which shows Carole beaming at the camera while she hangs decorations on her Christmas tree, the business head wrote, ‘Working next door to a Christmas Tree farm means we had the pick of the best Xmas trees! #yattendonestates 🎄🎅

‘Fairy lights, wooden ornaments, and the ever-important glittery baubles! There’s even a sneaky elf hidden somewhere in the branches!
