KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, is thought to be urging others to get behind the camera with the new Earthshot Prize photography competition.
She is no stranger to a camera, preferring to take her own pictures which are very good, too. Reports suggest that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to be launching their very own photography competition, due to be called the Earthshot Prize. Earlier in the year, Kate visited a photography workshop run by the Royal Photographic Society an Action For Children.
The Royal Photographic Society was founded in 1853 with the aim of promoting the art and science of photography, and in 1854 received Royal patronage from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
The Duchess made her appearance around the time that she was named the new patron of the Royal Photographic Society, following on from the Queen.
She seemed to be in great spirits as she arrived at the workshop at the children’s centre in Kingston upon Thames, South-West London.
The mother-of-three participated in the workshop with youngsters run by the esteemed organisation, that supports disadvantaged youngsters from around the UK.

The children that attended learned about several elements of photography such as light, colour and portraits.
The workshop also highlights the importance of photography and how it provides young people a universal language to express themselves through.
The Duchess has been praised for the photographic portraits that she has shared of her children, Prince George. Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
She has taken photographs of her children at important milestones in their lives such as birthdays and first days at nursery, which have then been published to mark the occasions.

Earlier this year, the keen royal photographer took photos of her youngest child, Prince Louis in April on his first birthday.
The royal couple’s charitable organisation, the Royal Foundation, has already applied to the Intellectual Property Office to trademark the name of the prize.
According to the application, high importance has been placed on the Earthshot Prize with the possible use of the name covering photographs, clothing, footwear, and headgear.
The trademark application also covers areas that include education and training services, publishing, cultural activities and any relating to nature conservation and the environment.

The Earthshot Prize will be one of the first projects the Royal Foundation has launched since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex left to start up their own foundation, Sussex Royal.
There may be some competition between the two organisations however, with both William and Harry sharing many interests including wildlife conservation and the environment.
Prior to their departure from the foundation, Prince Harry and Meghan were considered to be a part of what was labelled as the “Fab Four” with William and Kate.
Although a Kensington Palace spokesman declined to give any details about the prize, it makes sense that the Duchess of Cambridge is celebrating camerawork.
