Prince William and Kate finished off the third day of their Pakistan tour with a visit to Kalash village in Chitral. And while there, the Duchess of Cambridge was spotted one of her most beloved- her own camera.
She took photos of locals, especially children, dressed in brightly coloured traditional clothing. So, now, we are keeping fingers crossed that some of her photos will make it onto the Kensington Royal social media accounts.
By bringing her own camera, Kate’s appears to be following the Queen’s footsteps, who is regularly spotted with her camera on royal tours.
It’s common knowledge that Kate has a keen eye for photography, having taken some stunning images of her children in the past. From birthday portraits to the first day of school photos, she has been capturing all of her family’s big moments for years.
Duchess Kate is also a patron of the Royal Photographic Society, a role the Queen held for 67 years before passing it onto her granddaughter-in-law earlier this year.
“The Duchess has a longstanding interest in photography, and her patronage will further highlight the beneficial impact that art and creativity can have on emotional wellbeing, particularly for children and young people,” Kate’s office said.
During the engagement, William and Kate also enjoyed performances of traditional dances and music by the Kalash people wearing their unique attire. A cap traditionally worn by Kalasha women was also gifted to the Duchess.
“They were very happy, meeting and shaking hands with everyone,” a district administration official said of William and Kate, adding that the couple also took a keen interest in the Kalash culture.
While chatting, through a translator, with locals, Kate tried to say a few words in the local language, Kalasha.
Kate asked: “How do you say ‘thank you’?”
Repeating it a couple of times, she said: “Thank you so much for these amazing gifts. “What’s it like living here? “Were you affected by the floods and what did you do to recover?”
