On the 7th of May 2020, Kate joined presenters Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on ITV’s This Morning to launch her new project, Hold Still.
Hold Still is a community photography project hosted by the National Portrait Gallery. The Duchess, who is Royal Patron of the gallery, is spearheading the campaign.
Kate and the NPG want us to “help capture the spirit, the hopes, the fears and feelings of the UK as we continue to deal with the Coronavirus”.
Members of the public are being asked to submit photographs taken during the Coronavirus pandemic and submit them using the entry form on the NPG’s website. There are three themes:
- Helpers and heroes
- Your new normal
- Acts of kindness
The project is free and open to all ages and abilities. You can find out more on the National Portrait Gallery’s website, here.
The Duchess appeared by video link for the chat, which took place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the interview, Kate also spoke about life during lockdown. Speaking about homeschooling her children, the mother-of-three explained that George gets upset because he wants to do his younger sister Charlotte’s projects as they’re more fun.

For the interview, Kate wore a bright yellow dress adorned with a colourful tree print motif. It’s by contemporary brand, Raey.
The dress has a round neckline, bracelet-length sleeves and a long, flowy skirt. The piece retailed for £495 before going on sale at £148.
Raey is stocked exclusively at MATCHESFASHION. Sadly, the dress is now sold out.
Kate wore a pair of earrings by Catherine Zoraida. They’re the Gold Fern Drop Earrings. They feature a 3cm gold fern leaf suspended from a hook. The team at Catherine Zoraida made the earrings from 18ct gold plated silver. They cost £165 (around $200 USD). Kate’s worn the earrings regularly for a couple of months now.
