The Duchess showed her sense of humour while speaking to a real-life superhero. Jason Baird, a martial arts teacher, who wore a Spider-Man costume during lockdown walks to entertain children in isolation.
A portrait of Jason doing a backflip as children watched in awe featured in Kate’s photo project.
The future Queen’s photography scheme – Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation – was launched last year. It asked individuals up and down the country to submit an image which depicted their experience of the pandemic.
Kate hailed Jason’s Spiderman idea as “very cool” – and joked about buying Prince William a costume.
The Duchess, 39, said: “I’ll see if it takes on the trend here at Kensington Palace.
“Unfortunately I’m not so sure if he’s going to get the air clearance that you’ve got.”
Kate also thanked Jason for his “positive” contribution to her project.
She said: “Thank you for sending in your photograph because there are some really emotive and really sad images and stories that we had.
“But this brought, you know, particularly to the judging panel, it was such a wonderful positive image of community spirit.”
Recent remarks by commentators highlight Kate as “a breath of fresh air” in the Royal Family.
Royal author Ingrid Seward explained that the Queen and Prince Philip approved of Kate as a future Queen consort.
Speaking to Fox News in November, Ms Seward Queen Elizabeth II probably prays to God “Thank you for sending us Catherine Middleton”.
Ms Seward added: “She is a gem.”

In a short video, royal expert Camilla Tominey told the Telegraph ahead of Kate’s birthday in January : “Kate’s turning 39 and as she approaches that birthday she is very much carving her own path as she prepares to be the next Princess of Wales.
“I think when the time comes, Kate will use that title and so comparisons are automatically going to be made with Princess Diana.
“And of course they’re very big shoes to fill and I think that’s why Kate if you like has tried to beef up over recent years her own individual commitment to the crown.
“That means not being in her husband’s shadow but doing her own thing.
“The closet comparison might be a sort of first lady to presidential role in that Kate wants her own office, her own advisers and her own pathway to follow in addition to that of being in union with Prince William.”
