Duchess Kate also writes about her hobby: “Photography has a great ability to capture what we have all experienced.”
On International Photo Day on Thursday, Buckingham Palace released pictures of Queen Elizabeth II (95) posing for photos. In the mini-series published on the social media channels of the British royal family, for example, the king can be seen with a small yellow camera in 1982 on the South Sea island of Tuvalu while taking pictures.
Her Majesty has used a similar or even the same device to take pictures in Australia since 1977, as shown in a black and white photo. Another black and white photo, probably from the early 1950s, shows her and two of her children – possibly Prince Charles and Princess Anne – with a much older camera.
Photographer Hobby Kate
However, members of the royal family are actually Duchess Kate’s greatest amateur photographer. The 39-year-old often shares her own pictures of her kids on their birthdays. On the Twitter account of the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge, as Kate and her husband William, 39, are also called, photos from a competition for young photographers can be seen on Thursday. “Photography has a great potential to create a lasting record of what we have all experienced,” she said.
