We've seen an awful lot more of the royals' private living spaces this year, as the family have carried out official engagements from their homes amid fluctuating lockdown measures. This week, Kate Middleton took part in a video call with several military families who lost loved ones, to mark Remembrance Week in the U.K. As Town and Country reports, Kate shared a glimpse inside Kensington Palace on the call—and revealed the sweet family photos on display.
The @RoyalBritishLegion provides lifelong support to anyone who has served with the British Armed Forces 💂♂️ and their families. The Duchess of Cambridge spoke to Armed Forces families who have lost loved ones to hear about the impact that #Remembrance week has for them. Together they spoke about the support that they receive from members of the Armed Forces community, including other bereaved families, and from the Royal British Legion. #WeWillRememberThem

The framed photos include a snap of Kate and youngest son Prince Louis at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2019, and another of Princess Charlotte and Prince George before they headed to school later that year. There's also a photo taken by the Duchess of Cambridge herself: the sweet photo of Prince George giggling in the grass that the royals released to mark his sixth birthday last July.
🦁🦁🦁 Happy Birthday Prince George! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share new photographs of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness's sixth birthday. This photograph was taken recently in the garden of their home at Kensington Palace by The Duchess of Cambridge. Thank you everyone for all your lovely messages!

On the video call, Kate spoke to several relatives of service members who died during or after deployment. "I'm sure you spend your time every day remembering your loved ones but it's so important that the nation comes together and really spends time thinking about those who have lost their lives and the families that have been impacted," she said.
"It's been a real honour to speak to all of you and I think I speak for the whole nation when I say just how proud you should be of your loved ones, and for the sacrifice and the bravery that they've shown," Kate continued. "I'll certainly be thinking of you this difficult week and will be for many years to come."
