Duchess Kate Middleton has recently revealed an insight into how her children see her love of photography in the final phone call from the Hold Still series. This series was inspired by the Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020 book, which showed different aspects of life around the UK during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Ceri A, Edwards captured a photograph of her daughter Poppy hugging her dad before he began his shift as a paramedic. Poppy was worried about her dad working during the pandemic, so gave him a hug every time he left for work. Edwards submitted the photograph to be considered for the Hold Still book and it ended up becoming one of the finalists.
