So she drives her family on the palm
Duchess Catherine tells how annoyed her children often react when she lets off steam with her beloved hobby.
Duke Catherine, 39, found her great private passion in photography. The mother of three even launched the Hold Still photo project, which calls on people from across the UK to record scenes amid the coronavirus pandemic. During the video call with a participant in this project, Kate speaks openly about her experience of getting her own family in front of the camera and that doesn’t seem to be that easy in the royal household. Because, as Kate reports, not everyone in the Cambridge family likes to be available as a model and is annoyed when mom pulls out the camera again.
Duchess Catherine: “‘Mom, stop now’, I hear a lot”
Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, make it clear when they have had enough: “‘Mommy, stop taking photos,’ I often hear”, says Kate. The Duchess of Cambridge is often behind birthday portraits of her three children and other family moments. Following the death of Prince Philip, † 99, in April, the royal family shared a never-before-seen photo of Queen Elizabeth, 96, and Prince Philip with their great-grandchildren, taken by Kate.
“Only parents are close enough to get such photos”
Long-time official Royals photographer Arthur Edwards, 80, recently said he was a “great admirer” of Kate’s behind-the-camera skills and points to a very special snap. “The one I love most of Kate is William and the three kids on the swing,” said Edwards on ITV’s The Royal Rota podcast, which Kate took on the occasion of Prince William’s 38th birthday last year. “I would have given anything to be able to take the picture. Everyone laughs at their mother and you know that only a mother or a father can get this picture, it is an absolute winner. Charlotte with her arm around Daddy and you know right now, this is ‘Daddys Girl’. It’s a beautiful photo and I was so praised for her. “
