The one shining light of lockdown, has to be the behind-the-scenes access to the homes of the rich and famous via Zoom.
From Gal Gadot's controversial Imagine video, which gave us a sneak peek into the homes of multiple A-listers, to numerous Zoom calls with the Royal Family, who have been doing their best to cheer up the nation, throughout most of the pandemic.
The most frequently seen faces have been the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who've called the NHS to say thank you, sent messages of support to teachers and continue supporting their various patronages during lockdown.
With most of their video calls taking place in a mysterious green painted room, at their Norfolk residence, Anmer Hall, and one where William switched things up, and decided to chat about his new documentary - Football, Prince William and Mental Health - in what is presumably his study; a large room with high, impressive-looking bookcases in the background.
But all that changed today, when Kate Middleton allowed us into a third room of the house, thanking all those who've entered her photography competition, Hold Still, in a never-before-seen room, with pink scallop trim curtains and a large window overlooking the garden. How exciting.
During the first ever Thursday night #ClapForCarers movement, the Cambridges were also filmed clapping with their three children, Charlotte, George and Louis, outside their Norfolk house, which looks like a lovely, traditional red brick. So it's fair to say, we've got a fairly good picture of what life is like at home with the Duke and Duchess.
We've also been privy to a glimpse inside the home of Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton, thanks to the insightful video Kate's brother James posted recently of the family estate, Bucklebury Manor in West Berkshire. Though not where Kate grew up, it's nice to picture the Cambridges all playing in the garden when they visit the whole family. A much shorter travel time than if they fancied popping over to see Harry and Meghan, who gave a brief glimpse into their new family home in LA, during an impromptu Zoom call with Crisis Text Line back in May.
Here's hoping as the summer draws on we'll get more and more glimpses into how the other half really live!
