Kate Middleton, or formally known as Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, over the years has proved herself quite the budding photographer, having first taken an interest in documenting her family life before expanding onto different subjects – such as the recent photography project she undertook where she published her very first photography book, titled Hold Still, which captured the British nation during peak coronavirus pandemic – and it seems that the Duchess photography skills have now caught the eye of the Imperial War Museums in London, as they’ve “honoured” Kate Middleton with displaying some of her photographs she had taken from her time working with Holocaust survivors for a new exhibit.
Kate Middleton ‘honoured’ with spot on photography exhibit
At the beginning of 2020, Kate Middleton photographed Holocaust survivors Yvonne Bernstein and Steven Frank with their grandchildren, and in a post shared to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s joint Instagram account, Kate Middleton – who’s currently enjoying some well deserved time off at a staycation with Prince William – was said to be “honoured” that two of the portraits she had taken of the survivors would be included in the “new photography exhibition” at the Imperial War Museum, which aims to bring “together over 50 contemporary portraits of Holocaust survivors and their families.”
In honour of the announcement, the mom-of-three (to Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three) shared a “behind-the-scenes” snap of herself with Frank and his granddaughters to the delight of her 13 million Instagram followers.
In a lengthy caption, Kate Middleton described the exhibit as “powerful” and “special” with its display purpose being to connect “Holocaust survivors and the younger generation”.
Kate Middleton wrote, “displayed for the very first time, these powerful photographs capture the special connections between Holocaust survivors and the younger generations of their families, and remind us of our collective responsibility to ensure their stories live on.”
The post quickly gathered over 200,000 likes was inbound with comments from royal fans who praised the Duchess of Cambridge on her achievement. One Instagram user sang Kate Middleton’s praise, writing, “You are SOLID GOLD, Your Royal Highness, Duchess of Cambridge! 🙌.”
With others adding praising the Duchess’ photography skills, “Beautiful photos. Catherine is an incredibly talented photographer ❤️,” an Instagram user commented.
