Duchess Kate uses her MacBook and laptop stand for Zoom calls
The Duchess of Cambridge performed her royal duties on Zoom using her MacBook and handy laptop stand.
Laptop stand, £ 33.90, Amazon
We found a tech support version of Kate for £ 33.90 – such a steal! In addition, the foldable stand is really versatile. It can also be used as a breakfast tray, standing desk, book tray and desk. It even has a detachable cell phone holder and is good for neck pain.
360-degree rotatable ergonomic tablet stand (also available in white), £ 32.99, Amazon
We also got a good look at Kate’s iPad booth during the lockdown. The Duchess knows that if you trust the typical folding iPad cover stand, the tilt angle of the camera pointing at you makes the photo extremely unflattering. Instead, it invested in a nifty 360-degree rotating tablet stand that offers unparalleled adjustability.
We found an ergonomic version of the professional grade stand on Amazon for a bargain price of £ 32.99 and with fast same day delivery. It’s super sturdy and fits tablets of all shapes and sizes and you can even use it with your phone.

Hohem Gimbal Stabilizer, was £ 109 now £ 99.99, Amazon
When Kate and William recently returned to public tours, we found out that their secret to perfect Instagram videos was a gimbal! Their social media manager uses one very similar to this to get smooth, crisp images – which he films on his phone! The Hohem Gimbal stabilizer works with iOS and Android – just pop your phone into the holder, grab the stick and start shooting.
If you move around, the stabilizer stops blurring and shaking, giving you crisp, smooth video. There are many more interesting professional shooting options than the smart gadget – you can set it up to track faces or objects so that it moves to follow the person or thing when they move and it has ‘360 degree panning mode so you can shoot really cool sweeping scenes. The slow motion and fast motion functions are also amazing!
