  • The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly spent her and Prince William's ninth wedding anniversary working, calling members of charities that support pregnant women and new mothers.
  • Duchess Kate and Prince William along with their three children are currently self-isolating at their Anmer Hall home amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

The Duchess of Cambridge spent her ninth wedding anniversary doing the work that matters most to her.

According to the Court Circular, Kate took the time to video-call respective charities and organizations that support pregnant women and new mothers. Though the Kensington Palace Instagram also shared a throwback snapshot of the royal couple to honor their wedding anniversary, not much further insight into the Cambridges' special day has been shared.

Kate, along with her husband, Prince William, have been steadily working in recent weeks, especially with causes that highlight the work of emergency personnel and frontline workers amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis. In addition to helping virtually open field hospitals, visiting an NHS emergency call center, and video-calling caretakers, William and Kate spearheaded a new mental health initiative called Our Frontline, which provides emotional support and resources for frontline workers currently combatting the global pandemic.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge described the new initiative as being their "top priority" in the coming months as the United Kingdom continues to slow the spread of COVID-19 nationwide.

"Over the past few weeks, millions of frontline workers across the UK have put their physical and mental health on the line to protect us all during the Coronavirus pandemic," said the duke in a statement. "That takes a real toll, and as I've seen for myself through my work with the Air Ambulance, without the right support at the right time the challenges they face will only be greater. Catherine and I, together with The Royal Foundation, will do all we can to support Our Frontline.
