We love the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Instagram videos - including their recent Wimbledon videos - like when Kate Middleton’s vibrant yellow dress was hailed as the perfect summer outfit

But if you've ever wondered how their social media manager gets such stable professional videos - it's because he uses a stabilizer gadget called a Gimbal. By using this gadget it means he can get different angles, rotate the phone when he needs to and keep the camera stable - therefore producing professional-looking videos. 

The couple's recent Instagram videos include Prince William's stunning fans as he sold copies of the Big Issue on the streets of London and when Kate Middleton wore a statement gingham blouse in a rare at-home video with Cambridge kids.

We're not sure what version the couple's social media manager uses, but for Amazon Prime Day there are tons of discounts on the site - including from brands Hohem and ZHIYUN - with discounts varying from 5 to 20 per cent of their original price.

So if you fancy yourself as a vlogger or want to recreate Kate and William's videos there's no time like the present.
