The post comes after Queen Elizabeth and Middleton marked the launch of Hold Still.
Hold Still saw more than 31,000 photography submissions submitted over a six-week period that focused on Helpers and Heroes, Your New Normal and Acts of Kindness — themes around the COVID-19 pandemic. Middleton and four other judges selected 100 images that will now be displayed in the digital exhibition.
The Duchess of Cambridge showed a small collection of the photos to the Queen ahead of the launch, as seen below. They range from an “Everyday Hero” to a girl who made a drawing of her grandmother so she would be “Never Without Her Grandma.”
To mark the launch, Queen Elizabeth released a statement, reading, “It was with great pleasure that I had the opportunity to look through a number of the portraits that made the final 100 images for the Hold Still photography project.”
“The Duchess of Cambridge and I were inspired to see how the photographs have captured the resilience of the British people at such a challenging time, whether that is through celebrating frontline workers, recognizing community spirit or showing the efforts of individuals supporting those in need. The Duchess of Cambridge and I send our best wishes and congratulations to all those who submitted a portrait to the project,” The Queen added.
Ahead of the release, Kate shared a trailer highlighting more images on social media.
“I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has entered and taken part. And a big thank you to my fellow judges. I hugely appreciate the time and dedication that they have shown towards the project,” the mom of three previously said.
