Most people are staying at home and practicing social distancing amid the coronavirus outbreak. Prince William and his wife Duchess Kate are still doing their bit amid the pandemic.


While most medical professionals are focused on the physical implications of COVID-19, Prince William and Duchess Kate are tackling mental health. According to Kensington Royal, the Department of Health and Social Care has released new guidelines to help tackle mental health.

The organization has given out a new Public Health England guidance. The guidelines share advice on how to look after your own wellbeing.

Assisting with mental health issues

They also provide helpful tips on how to look after children amid the coronavirus outbreak. In their effort to assist during this trying time, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been in regular contact with organizations and patronages.

The royal couple aims to understand the issues they are currently facing. According to a Kensington Royal post, last week, William spoke on the phone with Mind Charity’s CEO Paul Farmer.


Working with NHS

His wife was in contact with Catherine Roche, the CEO of Place2Be. In an Instagram post, the royal couple wrote:

“It is great to see the mental health sector working together with the NHS to help people keep on top of their mental well-being.”


Cambridge’s call for unity

The Cambridge’s noted how people were “pulling together and taking simple steps each day” so they could “all be better prepared for the times ahead.” Some of the guidance includes urging people to stay in contact, digitally, with their loved ones.


British Royals under quarantine

The guidelines also encouraged learning new hobbies, following regular routines, and keeping sleep schedules. The Cambridges, the Queen, Prince Charles, and the rest of the UK are currently in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.


Wearing similar looks

Last week, William and Kate’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, all took part in the Clap for our Carers campaign. Royal fans noticed that little Louis and Charlotte were wearing clothes very similar to ones previously worn by their parents in the video.


Louis matching with William

Louis was dressed in dark blue trousers, a blue V-neck jersey, and a shirt. The attire was similar to his father’s one when he and Kate first announced they were expecting George in 2012.


Charlotte matches her mom’s clothes

Charlotte wore dark jeans and a striped top in the video. Kate last wore a similar look in 2015, when she attended the Gigaset Charity Polo Match at Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury.

Being homeschooled

George and Charlotte’s Thomas's school in Battersea, West London has been closed due to the pandemic. The two royal children will be homeschooled in the meantime.
