How Kate Middleton Is Staying Busy During the Coronavirus Lockdown
Kate Middleton and the rest of the royal family are adhering to the latest lockdown order in the UK. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are self-isolating with their three children at their country estate and will likely remain out of the spotlight for several weeks. With most of the world facing similar circumstances, here is a look at how Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, is staying busy during the coronavirus lockdown.
The royals take action against the coronavirus pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic continues to spread throughout the world and even the royal family has become affected by the outbreak. Last week, the royals announced several cancelations and are now self-isolating to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Those cancelations are expected to continue over the next month as senior members of the royal family keep out of the spotlight.
In a normal year, Kate Middleton would be spending her time taking her children to school and fulfilling royal duties. Her upcoming meetings and engagements, however, have been canceled, and schools across the UK have closed in light of the social distancing measures.
Just like thousands of other households across the UK, Kate is now home-schooling her children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, and will continue to do so until schools re-open.
Where is Kate Middleton staying?
With the royal family under lockdown, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reportedly staying at their country estate in Sandringham, Anmer Hall. The family of five is self-isolating at their house and keeping their contact with the outside world to a minimum.
Queen Elizabeth gave William and Kate Middleton Anmer Hall shortly after they tied the knot in 2011. The two consider Kensington Palace their primary residence and use Anmer Hall as a place to escape the city.
Although they are keeping to themselves, William has been in constant contact with his father, Prince Charles, who recently tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
We do not know if William and Kate have been tested for the virus, but hopefully they are staying safe and healthy amid the ongoing crisis.
How is the Duchess of Cambridge keeping busy during the lockdown?
Like most people in the world, Kate has been doing her best to stay busy during the lockdown. According to Hello Magazine, the Duchess of Cambridge is likely doing a few things to keep her and her family occupied.
For starters, Kate is a big advocate of getting outside and exercising. Luckily, Anmer Hall is located on a sprawling property that features a tennis court and a swimming pool, giving Kate and her kiddos plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors.
Kate Middleton has also been very open about cooking for her children and previously revealed that spending time in the kitchen is a go-to activity for her kids. In fact, Kate even has a garden she tends to and enjoys growing staples like carrots, beetroot, and beans.
“We’ve got carrots, beans, beetroot – a massive favorite – Louis absolutely loves beetroot,” Kate shared.
Considering how schools in the UK are shut down, Kate likely spends most of her day homeschooling her two oldest children. Fortunately, she is getting help via online learning, which undoubtedly helps take away some of the stress.
Will Kate Middleton and Prince William appear in public?
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, William and Kate have become the new face of the monarchy. Queen Elizabeth is currently in self-isolation at Windsor Castle while Prince Charles is under quarantine in Scotland after testing positive for the virus.
With most of the senior members of the royal family out of the spotlight, Prince William recently addressed the nation and encouraged people to stay safe. The move has left fans wondering if we will see more of William and Kate in the near future.
Unfortunately, William and Kate will likely remain out of the spotlight in the weeks to come. The prime minister of the UK, Boris Johnson, recently announced a strict lockdown for the entire country.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will likely follow Johnson’s order in a bid to set a good example for other citizens.
Kate Middleton has not commented on the reports surrounding her plans for the lockdown.
