Kate Middleton can't wait for the photo project she's been curating during lockdown to come together! As People reports, about 12,000 photographs have currently been submitted to the royal's "Hold Still" project, which she's running in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery.
The project, which Kate first announced back in May, aims to capture the spirit of life in the U.K. during the coronavirus crisis. And with a week left until the deadline for submissions closes, the royal has shared a brand-new video message about it!
Kate says that there's "been so many amazing entries" for project
Kate says in the video that she's excited for the final results of her "Hold Still" project, and shares some of the photos she's received so far! "I can't wait to share the final 100 images with you," she says in the video. "There have been so many amazing entries to 'Hold Still' over the last few weeks."
"From families up and down the country showing how they are adapting to life during lockdown, through to some of the most amazing NHS and social care staff who are putting their lives on the line to save the lives of others."
Kate hopes "Hold Still" can "build a lasting illustration" of this time
Kate also urges those living in the U.K. during this time who haven't submitted a photo for "Hold Still" to do so, as the deadline for entries is June 18. "But it isn’t too late to take part," the Duchess of Cambridge says in her video message.
"So please take a moment to capture what life is like for you, because together I hope that we can build a lasting illustration of just how our country pulled together during the pandemic."
The images selected to be part of "Hold Still" will be featured in a digital gallery exhibition, and centre on three key themes: "Helpers and Heroes," "Your New Normal," and "Acts of Kindness." Those interested in submitting their photos can do so on the National Portrait Gallery's website!
