On Monday, the Duchess of Cambridge announced her latest business venture into publishing as the next part of her initiative in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The project, titled Hold Still, is an effort to "help capture the spirit, the mood, the hopes, the fears and the feelings of the U.K." with photos taken by people across the United Kingdom. Now, Middleton will include the 100 finalists in a book published by the National Portrait Gallery.
To announce the news, the 39-year-old posted a heartfelt message on social media alongside a stunning portrait of herself. “Through Hold Still, I wanted to use the power of photography to create a lasting record of what we were all experiencing – to capture individuals’ stories and document significant moments for families and communities as we lived through the pandemic.
