Royal Family News – Kate’s Extensive Photographic Portfolio
Country Life is a magazine dedicated to countryside activities. Camilla has guest-edited for the outlet and this particular front cover, set to be released July 13, will mark the duchess’ 75th birthday. It wasn’t random that Camilla chose Kate to capture her image, as the relatively young royal is becoming known for her photographic talent, having taken and published her own children’s official portraits for a number of years.
The duchess has also collaborated with holocaust survivors, the Royal Photographic Society, of which she is reportedly a patron, and the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust to produce a number of salient images in 2020.
Royal Family News – Duchess of Cambridge Honored
Of the duchess’ photography shoot with Camilla, Country Life editor Mark Hedges had this to say, via press release:
“We are thrilled to have our Guest Editor captured so magnificently by royal photographer The Duchess of Cambridge.
“We understand this is the first time a formal portrait of The Duchess of Cornwall has been taken by The Duchess of Cambridge for a magazine and we are honoured to have been chosen to be the first to publish this beautiful photograph.
“The photographs are superb and we would be delighted to offer The Duchess of Cambridge another commission!”
Royal Family News – Hidden Ladybug
In the image, Camilla is wearing a floral print dress and carrying a trug Easter basket filled with flowers. It seems quite simple and elegant until you look closer. In the basket of flowers is hidden the Easter egg that is reportedly the symbol for Country Life’s commitment to environmental causes like sustainability. On one of the flowers within the basket’s bouquet is a tiny graphic of a ladybug.
According to Hedges, this is metaphorically an Easter egg for readers that often search the publication to try and spot the ladybug. Be sure and stay up to date on all Royal Family News and return here often for more news and updates.
