Kate Middleton recently revealed that the judges of the "Hold Still" competition had selected the final 100 portraits. The project aims to capture what life has been like during the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the United Kingdom, and it's clear that the duchess is extremely proud of all of the work that's been produced as a result.

In a new Instagram post, Duchess Kate introduced the "Hold Still" judges, and shared a personal message about the competition. She wrote, "I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has entered and taken part. And a big thank you to my fellow judges. I hugely appreciate the time and dedication that they have shown towards the project."

The caption also revealed, "From the 31,598 submissions, these amazing judges have chosen one hundred images that will feature in a gallery without walls – a one of a kind digital exhibition – which will launch on Monday 14th September."

In the accompanying clip of Kate's video chat with the judges, the duchess wore a flora Zara dress from its Spring 2020 collection, per @middletonmaven. Sadly, the summery number has since sold out.

The Royal Producer at ITV News, Lizzie Robinson, posted a moving quote on Twitter from the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate said of the project, "I’ve been so overwhelmed by the public’s response to Hold Still, the quality of the images has been extraordinary, and the poignancy and the stories behind the images have been equally as moving as well."
