Looks like Kate Middleton isn’t the only one with photography skills.
The Duchess of Cambridge joined a creative workshop run by the National Portrait Gallery’s Hospital Programme at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital to observe how the arts support children’s health, well-being and happiness.
During the event, Middleton joined the children as they participated in activities such as photography, illustration and 3D set design. At one point, 10-year-old heart patient Luke Wheeler-Waddison, took a beautiful photo of the Duchess as he tested out a Polaroid camera.
The snap shows the duchess smiling at the lens as she holds one of the rag wreaths, made by the children from discarded fabrics. According to Hello! Magazine, Luke was not shy about taking the photograph, “I will take it home and keep it forever,” he said.
“We just really wanted to say thank you to the Duchess for coming and spending time here. She was really touched, I think. I told her that I had the same birthday as her son, George, and my sister is four, like Charlotte. She said Charlotte would love to have the pink wreath up in her room. It would be amazing if they did that,” he continued.
For the occasion, the royal mom of three opted for a bespoke Dolce & Gabbana skirt suit to meet with children receiving care at the facility. She paired the look with black tights and her trusted Gianvito pumps. Middleton has been Patron of the National Portrait Gallery since 2012 and became Patron of Evelina London in 2018.
Luke, if you’re reading this, we’re seriously impressed.
