From Town & Country

The Duchess of Cambridge is continuing to embrace her business-casual style while working virtually from home.

For her latest video call alongside her husband Prince William, Kate chatted with a number of nursing students currently attending Ulster University. The Royal pair spoke with the students about their experiences of studying during a global pandemic, as well as their experiences having to step in for frontline workers battling the Covid-19 crisis in Northern Ireland.

The Duchess appeared professional and polished, but casual, for the virtual appearance, opting to wear a sleek black blazer paired with a cream-hued knit sweater, gold mini earrings and a dainty necklace. She wore her hair in a soft blow-dry and parted to the side. Prince William wore a navy blazer and maroon knit jumper for the call.

William and Kate first spoke to Abigail McGarvey, a first-year adult nursing student, who created a TikTok video diary in which she demonstrated a typical shift for her while working on the frontline, which the Cambridges shared on their official Kensington Royal Instagram account. During their conversation, McGarvey spoke about the emotional impact of Covid-19 on both working nurses and patients, and particularly how difficult it has been for patients not being able to be with their loved ones while battling the novel virus. For another conversation, the Duke and Duchess chatted with second- and third-year students, who expressed that, even amid their tireless work fighting the virus, they’re grateful for the invaluable experience that Ulster University is providing them amid this challenging time.
