It's not often we get a chance to see inside the homes of royal family members.
But on his Instagram account recently, the Duchess of Cambridge's brother, James Middleton, shared a peek into what looks to be gorgeous, rustic country kitchen of the Middleton family.
James and Catherine's parents - Carole and Michael Middleton - live in traditional England mansion in the Berkshire countryside, not far from where their children grew up.
Since the coronavirus pandemic, it's thought that James, who is the youngest of the Middleton siblings, has been in lockdown at the family home with his parents and fiance, Alizee Thevenet.
He recently posted a video to the Instagram account of his new business, Ella & Co., discussing the foods that are healthy for both dogs and humans to eat.
Whilst sharing an apple with his pet dog Ella, James appeared to be standing against the backdrop of the family kitchen.
The kitchen is decorated in cream tones with darker worktops and cabinets, with an impressive white structure covering what appears to be the vast hob.
Pots and pans can be seen in the corner of the video, suggesting the Middleton clan are keen cooks.
Of course, it's not certain that James did record the video in his family kitchen, but given that social distancing guidelines are still in place, there's every chance he was keen to record the message in the safety of his own family home.
The Duchess of Cambridge's brother has shared various social media posts of his time in Bucklebury during lockdown.
Most recently, he shared some adorable picture of his dogs, 'posing' in the extensive grounds of the Middleton family home.
In the caption of the post, he joked that he hadn't quite been able to tick every item off of his New Year's resolution list this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A few months ago, James also shared another glimpse at his family home, after posting a video of himself surprising his fiance with a freshly-shaven face - for the first time in seven years.

Bucklebury Manor wasn't the home that Catherine and her siblings grew up in, but according to reports it has been her parents home since 2012.
The home's surrounding estate reportedly covers a whopping 18 acres.
