Where to Get Those Gorg Books in Kate Middleton's Office

The latest in royal news? Harry and Meghan have reportedly moved to Los Angeles (eeee!). Meanwhile, Kate Middleton and Prince William have been self-isolating in England. Yesterday, Kate and William's official social accounts gave us a peek into what that looks like, with a few shots of their office. (According to the caption, they were making calls to organizations that deal with mental health.)

What caught our eye was an image of Kate (always the picture of perfection) and a very attractive row of hardcover books on her desk. After some sleuthing, we realized that they're part of Penguin's Clothbound Classics collection — most of the spines we recognize are Jane Austen novels, including Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park.

We also spy a copy of Middlemarch ...

As well as Bleak House by Charles Dickens.

Which is your favorite? Because we can't quite decide ...
