In a chat with one of the participants of the Hold Still Project, Kate Middleton revealed an interesting detail about her kids whenever she tried to take their photographs.


Photographs and videos are a great way to document memory and happenings. Although there are times when it feels like taking these pictures might be too much for those who are always in front of the camera.

In a chat with Ceri Edwards, one of the participants and finalists of the Hold Still Project, Kate Middleton shared a bit of information about her children when she attempts to take their pictures sometimes.

The mothers talked about Edwards' winning entry which featured her daughter Poppy hugging her father, who was a paramedic. The duchess expressed that the image was such a powerful one as it was touching.

Edwards then revealed that although she was not a professional photographer, she enjoyed taking pictures of her family for keepsakes. Kate agreed with her and revealed what her kids said to her sometimes. The royal said:

"It's like me. "Everyone's like, 'Mummy, please stop taking photographs!"

Edwards agreed with her and said she experienced the same thing sometimes with her family, but despite their reluctance, she loves it and enjoys looking back to see how much the kids have grown.

Edwards went on to share how their life has been since the beginning of the coronavirus and how much they have had to adapt to working from home and homeschooling the kids.

Working with the Duchess was a delight.

Edwards' daughter Poppy also jumped on the call with the duchess. Kate told the adorable girl that she loved seeing her big cuddle with her dad Mike.

She further revealed that cuddles were "very, very important," and she was certain Poppy's dad took that with him every time he went to work such that it helped him through the day. Poppy politely replied saying:

"Thank You. I was scared he would get the Corona."

The Duchess then went on to ask Poppy how she felt about the virus, to which she replied that it made her sad, but she did not talk about it to her friends, only her mother, and father. The call ended with Kate commending and thanking the family.

In another call with one of the finalists of the project, Kate revealed another family moment when she shared that her son Prince Louis was growing up fast and very quick on his scooter.
