Duchess Kate publishes portrait book “Hold Still”


Prince William’s wife captured the mood in Great Britain during the corona pandemic in a photo project. The profit from the resulting illustrated book is to be donated.

After her photo project on the mood in Great Britain during the corona pandemic, Duchess Kate (39) is now publishing a book with 100 portraits. Hold Still profits are to be shared between the mental health charity Mind and the National Portrait Gallery.

“With” Hold Still “I wanted to use the power of photography to create a permanent record of what we all experienced,” writes the wife of Prince William (38) in the foreword. It’s about capturing the stories of individuals and documenting important moments for families and communities.

“When we look back on the Covid-19 pandemic in a few decades, we will remember the challenges we faced – the loved ones we lost, the extensive isolation from our families and friends, and the strain on our key forces,” writes Kate. “But we will also think of the positive sides: the incredible acts of kindness, the helpers and heroes who have emerged from all areas of life, and how we have adapted together to a new normal.”

Collective portrait of the nation

As patron of the photo project, Kate had invited people from the kingdom to submit photographic portraits that they took during these extraordinary times. The most poignant portraits were selected for a virtual exhibition. The aim was a collective portrait of the nation. The pandemic has hit the country hard. More than 126,000 people in the UK have now died with or from Covid-19.

Duchess Kate is a passionate hobby photographer herself. She regularly takes photos of her three children, George (7), Charlotte (5) and Louis (2), which the royal palace publishes on important occasions such as birthdays.
