Turns out, as patron of the NHM, the Duchess of Cambridge will be announcing the winner of this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year for the competition’s first virtual awards ceremony on Tuesday evening (yep, that’s tonight). The 38-year-old royal teased the big news while on location at the museum’s famous Hintze Hall in a video clip shared on the Kensington Royal Instagram.
“It is so wonderful to be back at the reopened Natural History Museum, where we can all enjoy its treasures once again," Middleton says in the clip. "I'm here because tomorrow night I'm announcing the 56th Wildlife Photographer of the Year. I've been lucky enough to have a quick preview and I can say it's truly spectacular. I can't wait for you all to see it.”
