If you’ve ever wondered what Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, does when she has some downtime, the snap of her at-home office might have provided a little insight.

Earlier this week, Kensington Palace shared an image of Kate on the phone with Catherine Roche, the CEO of Place2Be – a children’s mental health charity that provides counselling and mental health support in UK schools. 

While the photo highlighted some of the work that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are doing to help support those working to combat COVID-19, the image also revealed Kate’s love of classic novels.  

On the desk behind the Duchess of Cambridge was a row of bright-coloured Penguin Clothbound Classics. The collection, designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith, features the likes of Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky; Little Women by  Louisa May Alcott; and Emma by Jane Austen.

Eagled-eyed fans of the Duchess of Cambridge were quick to decipher the books behind Kate. According to fans Kate’s books are as follows:

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

The Sonnets and a Lover’s Complaint by William Shakespeare

Middlemarch by George Elliot

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronté

The Odyssey by Homer

Bleak House by Charles Dickens

In the past Kate has been spotted purchasing  The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows and When God Was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman. In 2016, she also revealed that she had recently finished reading The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
