The Duchess of Cambridge has received recognition for her beautiful family portraits and tour photos, with a lifetime honorary membership of the Royal Photographic Society.
Dr Michael Pritchard, Chief Executive of the Royal Photographic Society praised the duchess for her “talent and enthusiasm” behind the lens.
“The Duchess of Cambridge has had a long-standing interest in photography and its history,” said Dr Pritchard.
“She is the latest in a long line of royal photographers and the society is pleased to recognise her talent and enthusiasm through honorary membership.
“We look forward to a continuing relationship with her.”
Since the birth of her first child, Prince George, the Duchess of Cambridge has released a number of family photos including Prince George’s first day at nursery school and Princess Charlotte’s first birthday.
Catherine has also previously published photos from her Asian and Pacific tour with Prince William in 2012.
