We all know her as the Duchess of Cambridge, but Kate has also received another title within the Royal Family unofficial royal photographer.
Duchess Kate is known to be a keen amateur photographer who often delights royal fans with pictures of her family released to mark special occasions Especially when it comes to photographing her three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
But, apparently, she also photographs the wider family.
Last week, in memory of the late Prince Philip, the royal family released several never-before-seen photographs of the long-serving consort. And almost all of them were taken by Duchess Kate.
One photo shows the Queen, the Prince, and seven of their great-grandchildren. The Duchess of Cambridge took the photograph in 2018 when the group visited Balmoral Castle.
Mike Tindall also posted a photo of his daughter Mia and great-grandpa Philip also taken by Kate. It showed Mia chatting with Prince Philip while he sliced some food and also enjoyed a beer.
Back in May 2020, in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, Kate launched the Hold Still project which received more than 31,000 entries. And a month ago, she announced the publication of the book Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020 which united the final 100 Hold Still portraits, as well as the stories that go along with them. The proceeds will be shared between the mental health charity Mind and the National Portrait Gallery, of which Kate is patron.
Matt Porteous, the man behind several official portraits of the Cambridges, told HELLO!: “Catherine is an amazing photographer, we have both shared tips on location and talked about light, settings and styles. Catherine has an amazing eye for photos so will always point us in the right direction for light and backdrops.”
“Catherine has an incredible eye for style, she knows what will look best in these scenes which makes my life easy.”
