The Duchess of Cambridge is known to be a keen fan of photography, however no one knew quite the extent of Kate’s passion for photography until Prince William’s surprise revelation at an event during the couple’s last night in Sweden.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their last night in Stockholm on the second day of their busy four day royal tour of Scandinavia at a glamorous evening event held at the Fotografiska Gallery in the Swedish capital.
Dressed in complimentary blue ensembles, Kate and Prince William chatted to other guests throughout the evening who work in the arts in Sweden, from all different corners of the creative industry from music and film to television and theatre.
Whilst talking to UK photographer Nick Veasey, Prince William revealed that Kate was especially interested in the exhibition on display that night at the gallery as his wife was a ‘passionate’ photographer. The Duke also revealed that Kate likes to practice her talent for photography every day – on their two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte!
‘We had a conversation about ultrasound, because she has been having scans while she is pregnant, and I told her that I’m inspired by the work of radiographers’ Nick revealed. ‘She was really interested and she’s a passionate photographer.’
‘William said that she takes pictures of her children every day.’
The Duchess of Cambridge’s photos of her two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are regularly shared with public, much to the delight of royal watchers.

Most recently, Kate took some sweet snaps of Princess Charlotte on her first day of nursery, just as she did when Prince George started nursery in 2016. The proud mum also used her photography skills to capture the very first photos of Prince George with his little sister after Princess Charlotte was born in in May 2015, and the keen photographer took the photos of Princess Charlotte to mark her first birthday in 2016.

Kate is so passionate about photography that she was commended by the prestigious Royal Photographic Society in 2017, who chose to recognise her ‘talent and enthusiasm’ by giving her an honorary lifetime membership to their society.
