Umm, Kate Middleton Is Leaving Personal Comments on Instagram Photos of Non-Royals

Kate Middleton is currently self-isolating at Anmer Hall with her husband, Prince William, and her three children, Prince George (6), Princess Charlotte (4) and Prince Louis (2). However, these brand-new photos prove the Duchess of Cambridge, 38, still has time for daily Instagram stalking like the rest of us.

The royal recently left a series of comments on social media posts of non-royals. It all started as a result of Middleton’s Hold Still photography initiative, which encourages people to share photos that reflect the current coronavirus pandemic.

Middleton commented on one post and thanked the man, named Ben, for his submission. “Thank you so much for taking part in the Hold Still project. I get so much joy from being outside and gardening too,” she wrote, signing the comment with a “C” for her full name, Catherine.

But it didn’t stop there. Another user shared a relatable homeschooling photo, which prompted Middleton to respond, “My children will very much relate to this!”

The duchess even applauded a 4-year-old photographer, who captured this gem of her mom cutting her dad’s hair with dog clippers. “I love this!” Middleton wrote. “What a budding photographer!”

When Middleton caught wind of nurse Christine’s story, she couldn’t help but chime in, writing, “Thank you so much for sharing your story and for the amazing work you all continue to do at such a difficult time.”

Middleton also commended a woman named Anna, who shared an action shot of her child. “A perfect example of Hold Still…the chance to re-engage and value the simple things around us,” she wrote.

Royals, they’re just like us…even when it comes to late-night social media use.
