UPDATE: The new photography book by The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is now available. Hold Still, published by the National Portrait Gallery (for which the Duchess is patron), documents the realities of the pandemic through photos of the people who lived through it. 

The official Twitter profile of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posted a quick look at the book, which you can see in the video below. Much was made of Kate's official portrait used in Hold Still, which sees her holding her trusty Fujifilm X-T3 camera – a more deliberate tool than the Canon PowerShots she is often seen with.
