Prince William and Kate Middleton’s weird Zoom meeting name explained

Ah, it makes sense now!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge surprised pupils with a ‘virtual visit’ this week when they spoke with staff and children at Casterton Primary Academy, which has remained open as it’s located close to Burnley General Hospital and has a high percentage of pupils whose parents are key workers.

The clip was shared onto the Kensington Palace social media accounts, and it’s all very sweet (and features Kate teasing William for stealing all their family’s chocolate, playfully telling him: ‘You keep eating it!’)

But, having put our investigative hats on, we noticed something ~weird~ about Kate and William’s screen name for the meeting. Instead of calling themselves ‘Prince William’ or ‘Kate’ they simply called themselves ‘DOC.’ So…what does that mean, exactly?

Well, according to Town & Country, the couple appears to have abbreviated their royal titles Duke and Duchess of Cambridge into a handy acronym. So yeah.

The royals are enjoying some family time while in isolation at their home Amner Hall in Norfolk. And according to a Us Weekly source, they’re all getting involved.Kate bakes and decorates cakes with the kids [on] the weekend to keep them entertained. The kitchen is always a complete mess by the end of it, but it’s all part of the fun – that’s how Kate sees it. They also enjoy gardening together and planting seeds.’

Sounds lovely!
