The couple also made a rare TV appearance on April 23 to praise health care workers’ efforts during the current pandemic crisis. But eagle-eyed fans were quick to analyse what the Duchess wears during the virtual meetings.
She has worn bright colours for almost every interview, sparking theories among fans that she might be sending a message.
Throughout the pandemic, Britons have adopted the rainbow as a sign of hope during these uncertain times.
Members of the public are even displaying rainbow drawings on their windows and outside their homes to spread the message of hope.
And now the Duchess of Cambridge is thought to be doing the same — virtually, through her fashion choices.
The popular @CambridgeMums Instagram account pointed out on May 12 that the Duchess has worn all the colours of the rainbow throughout a series of her virtual addresses.
“Kate has literally worn a rainbow,” @CambridgeMums wrote in the caption of a grid photo showing the Duchess’ colourful looks.
Our duchess of impact has quite literally used her lockdown wardrobe to send a message, and we are here for it.”
The Duchess wore for an indigo midi by French designer Joseph Altuzarra for various video calls to hospitals around the world to mark International Nurse’s Day earlier this week.
At the end of the month, she wore a violet £129 floral dress from British firm Ghost as she stepped out of her home at Anmer Hall for Clap for Carers.
She donned the Anouk Dress, which showcases fabric-covered buttons as the main feature with romantic ruffles along the collar and hem, for the occasion.
Days earlier, she wore independent brand Really Wild’s Long Crewneck Jumper in emerald green as she and Prince William chaired a virtual meeting with a mental health charity.
Her first online engagement, in which Kate spoke to schoolchildren in Burnley over Zoom, was the only event in which she did not wear a British designer.
Kate Middleton and Prince William are working to keep people’s spirits lifted and their outfits might reflect that, too.
In April, the couple told BBC how they are staying in touch with family via FaceTime.
“We’ve been talking to all the family online,” Prince William said.
“It’s been a really good way of keeping in touch and seeing each other.
“For some reason, [Louis] sees the red button and always wants to press the red button.”
