Still scratching your head on what to do with all those gifts from your wedding anniversary? It looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton may have found the answer.
- Prince William and Kate Middleton's living room has been revealed on a recent Zoom call with NHS frontline staff.
- The video showed several decorative details, including one brilliant home decor hack.
- In other Royal News, Prince William has revealed that future role as king was not at the top of his "priority list."
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s creative home decor hack has been revealed to their millions of followers - and we’ve already got the toolbox out.
Royal followers were treated to a rare peek inside Will and Kate’s plush living room, in a recent Zoom call with NHS frontline workers. Although the entire space wasn’t visible, fans of the couple were quick to clock several design details in their background - as well as a clever home decor hack that’ll lift the elegance of even the barest of rooms.
Seated on a cream-colored couch adorned with decorative pillows, Will and Kate listened earnestly to the staff from Hospice’s Just 'B' counseling and bereavement support line about the challenges facing the service during the pandemic.
Three house plants can be spotted behind the future monarchs, as well as a beige table lamp and framed photograph.

While the overall vibe exudes neutrality, the room is far from boring.
The minimal furniture is backed by a mirrored feature wall, decked with a generous serving of white-ivory china plates. Hanging plates on a wall is an easy but effective hack that adds a regal touch without overwhelming the space.
Despite her access to the world’s top designers, Kate reportedly prefers to have full control over her home’s aesthetic.
"Instead of hiring a royal interior designer, she wants to furnish it in her own style, because she wants this to be her own family home,” antique rugs dealer Simon Knight revealed after Kate visited his store in Gloucestershire.
With her DIY design hacks and fuss-free furniture shopping, Kate’s royal style has never been easier to replicate.
Sure, wall plates may not be as luxurious as dripping chandeliers, but if they’re good enough for the Duchess, they’re good enough for us.
