This year's celebration of St. Patrick's Day still had some spark amid the coronavirus outbreak after a photographer shared a photo, from seven years ago, featuring Prince William and Kate Middleton.


The picture in question was taken during the celebration of St. Patrick's Day in 2013 and showed a sweet moment between the royal couple, William and Kate. 

Kate got her shoe caught in something and had to stoop down to adjust it, but didn't do it alone, with her caring husband lending a helping hand to his wife. Oh! Such sweetness!

That adorable moment was caught on camera by Samir Hussein, and to ensure that the gloom of coronavirus didn't overshadow this year's celebration, he shared the photo on Instagram for people to see. 

In his caption to the post, Hussein said that 2020's St. Patrick's Day was unique because of the current health crisis, leading bars and pubs in Ireland and all over the world to be closed. He hoped everyone was keeping well and added:

"[The] photo... was taken on St. Patrick's Day seven years ago as Kate got her shoe caught only to be ably assisted by William." 


Many Royal Family fans viewed Hussein's picture and commented on it, with most of them praising him for the shot. One fan said that the photographer captured a real moment, adding that she loved his images. 

Another fan, recalling that moment in 2013, said that Kate made the awkward situation she found herself look like nothing really happened and carried on gracefully with a little humor.

During the couple's 3-day trip to Ireland, William didn't hesitate to tell the public how much he loved his wife.


A third fan said she had always adored the picture because it was so relatable, while a fourth opined that Hussein's capture was a good one, and was "Real in a frequent reality." 

Another person had nothing but praise for Hussein, describing the photo as a great shot, and added to her comment, an emoji of two hands in the air. 


The photo posted by Hussein again showed just how much Prince William loves and adores his wife, Kate, something he is very much proud of. 

During the couple's 3-day trip to Ireland in early March, William didn't hesitate to tell the public how much he loved his wife, after a fan, Angela Moran, told him that she admired and loved Kate.

 In his reply, the Duke of Cambridge said that he also loved Kate and that it was kind of Angela to say that. Prince William and Kate Middleton married in 2011, and they have three children, George, 6, Charlotte, 4, and Louis, 1.
