The Duchess has kept herself very busy during the lockdown, making almost daily video-calls to the charities that she supports. In the past few weeks alone, Kate has spoken via video link to nurses delivering vaccines in the Midlands, as well as to frontline workers and counsellors dealing with the mental health impact of the pandemic. Her selfless commitment to her various causes has raised her profile among the public, and has led to a greater appreciation of her role as a working Royal.

Royal author Penny Junior told The Sunday Times: “I think the whole of lockdown has opened people’s eyes to working members of the Royal Family.

“They are reaching a far wider audience than before and Kate is coming out of it really well.”

Former BBC Royal correspondent Jenny Bond also praised Kate’s performance during the Covid crisis.

She told the publication: “She’s widely admired now as a public figure.

“I think she’s demonstrating that she’s very much in touch with the mood of the country.”

One striking success for Kate has been her involvement in the ‘Hold Still’ project.

A keen amateur photographer, the Duchess asked the public to take photos capturing life in Britain under the lockdown.

The result was the publication of ‘Hold Still’, a collection of photos depicting life during the pandemic.

Kate helped select the photos and wrote a forward to the book, in which she said: “Through Hold Still, I wanted to use the power of photography to create a lasting record of what we were all experiencing.

“When we look back at the Covid-19 pandemic in decades to come, we will think of the challenges we all faced … but we will also remember the positives: the incredible acts of kindness, the helpers and heroes who emerged from all walks of life and how together we adapted to a new normal.”

Proceeds from the book are being donated to the National Portrait Gallery and the mental health charity Mind.

A video posted to the @KensingtonRoyal Instagram account, showing Kate receiving a copy of the book, has racked up over two million views.
