The official Twitter account of the Royal Family shared a picture of the Duke of Gloucester inside his home on the Kensington Palace grounds. The photo shows Prince Richard, the Queen’s cousin, on a phone call with Major General Alan Hawley from the Royal Army Medical Corps.
The caption of the post read: “The Duke of Gloucester, Colonel-in-Chief, held a telephone meeting with Major General Alan Hawley from the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) this morning.
“The Duke received an update on the continued involvement of the @ArmyMedServices in the frontline COVID response.”
The prince appeared to be sat in his study while he made the royal phone call.
Behind the Duke, fans can see an impressive bookcase filled will a variety of multi-volume works including The Book of Kells.
Prince Richard and his wife, the Duchess of Gloucester, live on the Kensington Palace grounds in the Old Stables.
The royal couple previously lived in Apartment 1 at Kensington Palace before they downsized in 2019.
The Duke and Duchess have three children – Alexander Windsor, Earl of Ulster, Lady Davina Windsor and Lady Rose Gilman.
But the royal children have all grown up which could explain the couple’s downsizing.
