The Duchess’s Roller Coaster of Emotions Judging “Hold Still” Photos

Hello and happy weekend to everyone. We’re back with a quick post following up on the Duchess’s project, ‘Hold Still, a portrait of our nation in 2020.’ The endeavor was done in tandem with the National Portrait Gallery, one of Kate’s patronages. People across the UK were asked to submit photos that captured “the spirit, hopes, fears & feelings of the UK as we continue to deal with the Coronavirus outbreak.”  It turns out more than 31,500 images were submitted, a rousing success, I would say. Now a panel of judges has selected the final 100 photos that will be part of a special online exhibition.  Below, the Duchess and the other four judges. Above you see (clockwise from top left): Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery; the Duchess of Cambridge; ...
