The British royal family adapts to the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic. If the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and Prince William can no longer travel to Buckingham, they continue to be present online. The small family is confined to the Georgian mansion of Anmer Hall in Norfolk. They take care of their three children: George, Charlotte and Louis, and manage their charitable meetings remotely. Queen Elizabeth II could stay in the shelter of Windsor Castle for many more weeks, with Prince Philipp. Relatives of the royal family fear that it could catch the Covid-19 virus, which more severely affects the elderly.
The Duchess of Cambridge has launched a photo contest
To bring some gaiety in these troubled times, the Duchess of Cambridge launched the photo contest Photostill, in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery (editor's note: the London portrait gallery), of which she is one of the patrons. The project aims to "create a collective portrait of the United Kingdom" who will show "resilience, courage, humor, kindness and creativity" of the British during this extraordinary period. All photographers can take on the challenge by submitting their photo under the hashtag #Photostill. The Duchess of Cambridge, herself passionate about photography, sends congratulatory messages to the photographers she finds talented. Below a photo of a child blowing a dandelion, the Duchess of Cambridge wrote: "A perfect example of Hold Still … The opportunity to reconnect and enhance the little things around us". A hundred photos will be selected and shown during a virtual exhibition … which will become physical after the coronavirus crisis.
