On Thursday, a video released shows Kate talking to fellow mum and photographer Ceri A Edwards. The poignant snap to Kate’s Hold Still project features daughter Poppy hugging Dad Mark, who has worked as a paramedic throughout the pandemic.
The Duchess asked Ms Edwards if she was a photographer, to which she replied: “No. Well, Mark would say otherwise just because I do take a lot of pictures of the family.”
Kate then explained that her children – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three – sometimes refuse to have their picture taken.
She said: “It’s like me. Everyone’s like, ‘Mummy, please stop taking photographs!'”
Ms Edwards could relate to the Duchess. She said: “Absolutely. But I love it, and I love looking back.”
Hold Still is a photography collaboration launched in 2020 with the National Portrait Gallery.
It encouraged Brits to capture the “spirit of the nation” during the crisis.
In March, Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020 was released, which included submissions.
Talented photographer Kate is also a great subject for other photographers.
Matt Porteous, who captured Kate’s portrait in the Hold Still book, praised the Duchess’ “eye for style”.
It featured alongside Kate’s foreword, and shows the Duchess smiling in a red jumper while holding her camera.
Mr Porteous said the Duchess helped during the shoot by choosing the right setting.

He told Hello! magazine: “Catherine’s style very much suits the country setting we were in and the light was perfect for a few minutes before the sun set behind the trees.
“Catherine has an incredible eye for style, she knows what will look best in these scenes which makes my life easy.”
Last year, Mr Porteous also took the Cambridges’ family picture released by Kensington Palace as their Christmas card.
