Kate has been out and about lately. On Friday, May 7, Kate arrived at the National Portrait Gallery to mark the release of her new photography book, Hold Still

"The Hold Still book documents a photography project which captured a portrait of our nation as we lived through the first COVID-19 lockdown last year," the message began. "The images tell the stories of the challenges we all faced, but also how we came together in the most extraordinary of times."
