The pair also revealed that the Duke of Cambridge had been joining in the campaign himself. 

“The Duke has been volunteering for #Shout85258, the UK’s first 24/7 crisis text line, launched in 2019 by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex — as one of more than 2000 Crisis Volunteers trained to support anyone, anytime, whatever their crisis may be.”

Prince William wore a blue shirt for the video, while Kate wore a white shirt that she’s been spotted in before. 

“You’re a lifeline to them,” Kate told one of the volunteers in a video call, saying to another, “Everyone’s got something to give back.”

The Duchess also asked one volunteer named Cain to give her chess lessons, claiming she’s “terrible”. 

Kate has been praised for her more casual look during lockdown, wearing tops and dresses that are less formal than her usual style. 

In this new video Kate recycled a shirt that she previously wore to unveil her Back to Nature Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show last year. 

The Mabel Shirt by MiH Jeans is £255, and is still available to buy on the brand’s website. 

However, it’s already selling fast; usually available from size XS up to a size large, it’s currently only available in extra small.

The chic broderie anglaise shirt features a scallop trim on the neck and puffed sleeves, and is made with 100 percent cotton. 

The thrifty Duchess paired the shirt with some budget-friendly hoop earrings that she’s also been seen in before. 

Kate appeared to wear her Twisted Circle Drop Earrings from Accessorize, which were just £5. 

The pretty earrings feature two hoops – one for the stud and one that drops to a length of around three quarters of an inch. 

Kate had previously worn the trendy earrings for a reception at Ireland’s Museum of Literature in Dublin.

The royal paired the high street jewellery with a pink vintage polka dot dress by Oscar de la Renta. 

Kate is known for mixing high street fashion with designer clothing, often appearing in items from high street stores such as Zara and H&M. 

In recent weeks she’s also caused Ghost dresses to sell out after wearing the brand’s floaty dress to clap for carers alongside her family.
