The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went to meet some of the 100 finalists for the Hold Still photography project, which documented life in the UK under lockdown. As the powerful images of everyday life go on display across the UK, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge headed to Waterloo to meet Hackney Food Hub volunteer Samy Massalami Mohammed Elmassalami Ayed, who featured in the photograph “Sami”, shot by Grey Hutton.

And the outing was just another opportunity for the stylish Duchess of Cambridge to show off her caring and nurturing side.

Sami, who didn’t know his photo had been taken until he got a call from the National Portrait Gallery, spoke to the Duchess on the phone.

He said: “The Duchess called me a few weeks ago and we had such a lovely conversation.

“She told me how she wanted to build a snapshot of how Britain was coping in the pandemic, but to show all sides of what people have gone through and are still going through.”

Sami, who is studying for his PhD in London, said: “The Duchess came across as really caring and dedicated, I was so impressed she took the time to call me.

“I told her about the work they do at the food hub, and she agreed it’s such a vital project.

“I was lucky enough to help out there for a couple of months, but they always need help throughout the year.”

The Duke and Duchess also managed to visit St Bart’s Hospital, where they met Joyce Duah who photographed ‘All in this together’.

Ms Duah, who is a specialist oncology pharmacist, photographed her colleagues Amelia Chowdhury and Dipal Samuel, who were drafted in to work in the Intensive Care Unit.

Speaking to Ms Duah, the Duchess said: “Thank you so much for the image.

“It had such an impact it captured the moment, it was a look behind the scene. The story of what you experienced is so important.”

Prince William added: “It is important for history purposes to show that actually happened.”

And Sami isn’t the first person to remark on the Duchess’s caring nature.

According to parenting expert and founder of Babyopathy Angela Spencer, the Duchess’s caring and positive nature can be seen in her three children.

While many people in the public eye prefer to keep their children out of things, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are often seen out and about with their parents.

Ms Spencer said: “I think it is extremely hard to be a parent in this decade because in this age of social media every move we make is under scrutiny.

“But for a mum in the royal spotlight, that is even worse.

“Having to parent in the public eye would be every mum’s nightmare, however, the Duchess of Cambridge does it with such grace and serenity I have to say I’m a little jealous!

“It’s lovely to see her acting so naturally with her children and that they are obviously allowed to let their individuality be part of their public life too.

“The caring, positive nature of her parenting shines through her children.”
