Inside Prince William’s Royal Office – and the Adorable Family Photos That Decorate It

Prince William may be part of the British royal family, but he’s also a doting father and husband. The Duke of Cambridge recently sat down for an interview with BBC that not only allowed viewers to get an inside look at his office but also revealed the adorable family photos he keeps on his desk.

Prince William’s royal office looks like a cozy space

Knowing how opulent royal palaces and homes can be, it would be easy to imagine William’s office adorned with ornate moldings and luxurious furniture. But as revealed by his interview with BBC’s Adam Fleming, Prince William’s Buckingham Palace office is an intimate and cozy space that looks like it was decorated with a personal touch. 

In the interview, William and Fleming sit on simple, mint green upholstered chairs. There are plants on both sides of them. And a simple wooden coffee table with two coffee mugs sits in front. 

Several items in William’s office look like they could have been picked up during his world travels. Directly behind his chair stands a large wood panel adorned with an Asian script. And the room is strewn with beautifully painted vases and plates. 

Prince William keeps sweet photos of his family in his office

While watching Prince William’s interview, it was hard to miss the sweet family photos he keeps in his office. On the mantle, there is a framed photo from Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s 10th-anniversary shoot. 

On the table just behind him sits an adorable photo of William’s son, Prince George, with his late grandfather, Prince Phillip. And a side table holds a couple of barely visible photos, one of which seems to be a family photo of William, Kate, and their children

In his office interview, Prince William spoke passionately about saving the environment 

William probably keeps his office space cozy so he can comfortably work on one of his biggest passion projects — the Earthshot Prize. He developed the award through the Royal Foundation in collaboration with David Attenborough, to promote and fund groups working to better the environment. 

During his interview with Fleming, the Duke of Cambridge talked about the Earthshot Prize. And he suggested the world should be focusing on saving Earth before looking out into space. 

“We need some of the world’s greatest brains and minds fixed on trying to repair this planet, not trying to find the next place to go and live,” he said. 

While discussing climate change, William talked about the challenges and emotional impact younger generations are facing. “We are seeing a rise in climate anxiety,” he suggested. “You know, people, young people now are growing up where their futures are basically threatened the whole time. It’s very unnerving and it’s very, you know, anxiety making.” 

William also shared his hope for the Earthshot Prize initiative. And he talked about the positive impact he wants it to make.

“The prize itself will stimulate solutions and action that a lot of people haven’t necessarily produced yet,” the Duke of Cambridge suggested. “And so I’m hoping, you know, the prize will galvanize a lot of people in positions of responsibility to go further, bigger, and actually start to deliver.”
