Duchess Kate is thinking about getting a cheeky gift for Prince William, which George, Charlotte and Louis will definitely love!
On Monday, Kensington Palace released a phone call of Kate speaking to Jason Baird, one of the finalists chosen for her photography book, Hold Still: A Portrait of our Nation in 2020.
The selected photograph, shows Jason performing a backflip while dressed up as Spider-Man during lockdown last year. The mother-of-three joked she would think about buying Prince William a Spider-man costume too to entertain children in their local area.

“Thank you for sending in your photograph because there are some really emotive and really sad images and stories that we had,” Kate said during her phone call with Jason. “But this brought, you know, particularly to the judging panel, it was such a wonderful positive image of community spirit.
“It was amazingly captured. And I hadn’t appreciated at the time that you are a martial arts teacher so that gives it a lot of context as well.”
“I’ll see if it takes on the trend here at Kensington Palace,” she laughed. “Might have to buy William a suit. Unfortunately, I’m not so sure he’s going to get the air clearance that you’ve got.”
Duchess Kate also asked Jason what inspired him to dress up as Spider-Man in lockdown. “When we heard the news that you were only allowed out for an hour a day, kind of like the activities, go for a walk, go for a run, it was more a case of we wanted to try and cheer the kids up,” he said.
“I’ve got two children myself, a five-year-old and a one-year-old, and obviously they can’t go out and they can’t see their friends, so it was more a case of trying to just bring a few smiles and stuff.
“Literally from that day one, we had all the children in the area playing Spider-Man out the window, dressing up as Spider-Man, they had signs in the window, ‘Spider-Man stop outside my house’ and stuff.”
