Kate Middleton Reveals What it Was Really Like Getting that Perfect Shot of Prince Louis for His Birthday

Remember this year's adorable birthday portraits of Prince Louis? Well, capturing those moments was no easy feat, according to Kate Middleton. 

On Thursday, the Duchess of Cambridge made an appearance on British TV show This Morning to discuss her latest project: Hold Still, a photography initiative aiming to capture the feelings of everyone across the United Kingdom amid the current coronavirus pandemic. Middleton, in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, is asking followers to “help capture the spirit, the mood, the hopes, the fears and the feelings of the U.K,” using phones or cameras and sharing the images online.

During the interview, the 38-year-old royal opened up about her own recent experiences with photography, specifically those now-famous portraits of Prince Louis (who turned 2 on April 23) completing an art project. 

“I should have taken a photo of what I looked like after that as well!” Middleton said. “Luckily it wasn't documented but I looked like Louis at the end of it!” We bet. 

ICYMI: The royal family shared never-before-seen photos of Louis last month, which showed the prince with rainbow-colored paint on his hands and on his face and, of course, the finished product—his rainbow handprint on a piece of paper. 

Oh, how we wish someone had snapped a picture of Kate through all this.
