Royals have resumed their official duties from home thanks to these trusty tech essentials. The Duchess of Cambridge has become a Zoom pro, using her MacBook and foldable laptop stand, while the Countess of Wessex has invested in a professional microphone. As well as most offices, gyms have had to close amidst the pandemic, but that doesn’t mean that the royals won’t be able to keep on top of their health and fitness goals. Prince Harry has been pictured wearing the high tech Oura Ring on a number of occasions, while Duchess of Cornwall often accessorises with her Apple Watch.
We’ve rounded up the royals’ favourite tech essentials, so you can make life that little bit easier.
