To see how learning photography can help young people develop confidence and self-expression, The Duchess of Cambridge will join a photography workshop with her patronage Action for Children, run by the Royal Photographic Society.

Her Royal Highness will join young people from Action for Children in several sessions run by Royal Photographic Society honorary fellows Jillian Edelstein and Harry Borden that will cover various elements of photography such as portraits, light and colour. Alongside developing new skills, the workshop will highlight how photography provides a universal language for young people to express themselves and explore their thoughts and feelings.

As part of her longstanding work on early years The Duchess is on a mission to support organisations like Action for Children that aim to give every child the best possible start in life. Action for Children, who are marking their 150th anniversary this year, are committed to helping vulnerable children, young people, and their families, across the UK. The charity’s 7,000 staff and volunteers operated over 522 services in the UK, improving the lives of 301,000 children, teenagers, parents and carers last year.

The Royal Photographic Society is one of the world’s oldest photographic societies. It was founded in 1853 with the objective of promoting the art and science of photography, and in 1854 received Royal patronage from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The Society has over 11,000 members and runs an extensive programme of more than 300 events throughout the United Kingdom and internationally. Her Royal Highness was made an Honorary Member of the Royal Photographic Society in January 2017.
