Instead of having a professional photographer do the job at some important family milestones, she has chosen to add her personal touch to them.
Kate is passionate about the photography and the bug bit her long before she became part of the British Royal family.
The official profile of Kate mentions her hobbies as hill walking, tennis, sailing, swimming, and painting, while her love of taking picture figures right on the top.
According to the British Monarchy’s website, she took photographs while working at Party Pieces; a party organizing company owned and run by her parents.
One of the most recent photographs she has shared on Instagram is of the newest member of the Royal family, Prince Louis.
Clicked three days after his birth on April 26, 2018, the little Prince is photographed lying on his bed with his eyes wide open at their home in Kensington Palace.
The proud parents thanked the public with a message accompanying the photo. It read, ‘The Duke and Duchess would like to thank members of the public for their kind messages following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.’
Another portrait showed the newborn with his sister, Princess Charlotte, who was celebrating her third birthday. Sporting a blue cardigan, she is seen kissing her baby brother on his forehead.
36-year-old Kate marked another important day in her daughter’s life by sharing two photos of her second child. For the first day of her nursery school, the little Princess was wearing a red coat with matching shoes and a pink cashmere scarf.
Charlotte began her academic journey with Willcocks Nursery School in London at the start of 2018.
In another picture, she is seen walking down the stairs at Kensington Palace. The caption accompanying the photos revealed that they were clicked by Kate before her daughter went to school.
The Duchess had also shared an adorable photo of Charlotte to mark her second birthday. Taken outdoors, the Princess was seen in a yellow cardigan.
The parents thanked those who sent in their wishes on the occasion of their daughter’s birthday. The photo was taken in Norfolk in April 2017.
The official Instagram handle had shared some photos of Charlotte about a year earlier on May 1, 2016, when she was just 11 months old.
Another image had Charlotte sitting in her little chair at their home in Norfolk. The same day, the family shared another photo of the little one standing next to a chair. The couple hoped that the people enjoyed the photographs as much as they did.
A photograph of Charlotte playing in the gardens ahead of her first birthday also made it to the official Instagram page. Kate and William wrote that they were happy to share some of the most important family moments with their fans.
Prince George has also been the subject in his mother’s photographs. In January 2016, she shared pictures from his first day at nursery.
In one of the photos, he was seen with a small backpack standing in front of the mural on the outside of his nursery building.
Another photo had him pointing to the wall of Westcare Montessori School in Norfolk.
Kate began the tradition of sharing the first official portraits of the Royal children. She shared some of the first photos of Princess Charlotte.
The first photograph to be released to the public had Prince George holding his little sister at their family home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.
To mark Charlotte’s sixth month anniversary, Kate shared a photograph of her daughter playing with a stuffed toy.
The Sun’s veteran Royal photographer, Arthur Edwards, said, "Kate is genuinely good at taking portraits."
Edwards has captured the lives of the British Royal family for more than 40 years. He said that Kate fills the frame and uses natural light well. According to the photographer, the photos of Kate’s children are simply amazing.
