Sharing a video on her official Twitter account, Kate wrote: “Let the research begin! We joined @the_bookfairies for the day to share copies of Hold Still in the UK with you. “

Each copy is adorned with a fairy sticker from the guestbook, a gold ribbon and a letter from the Duchess hidden inside.

One lucky researcher shared a photo of their copy online, writing: “My roommate and I just managed to get the hidden copy on Van Gogh Walk by Nicholas Cullinan! “

They’ve attached a photo of the Duchess’s letter inside, which asks readers to “leave it somewhere else in your community for the next person to enjoy” once they’ve read it.

Kate launched her Hold Still project in May last year and has encouraged the public to grab a camera or smartphone and capture “the spirit of the nation” during the pandemic.

Images of sleeping nurses, the elderly protecting the elderly, and family scenes showing the reality of working from home were among the images submitted, with 100 photos chosen to be exhibited across the country and now featured in the book. .

The photos will also be on permanent display at the National Portrait Gallery in London, which Kate visited this afternoon.

Talented photographer Kate joined the Hold Still judges and contributors of the last 100 images by leaving copies in places that gave them hope during the lockdown.

The initiative was supported by The Book Fairies, an organization that encourages people to leave books they liked for others to find.

It comes as the book roams the charts, ranking number one in Amazon’s Portraits in Art, Architecture, and Photography section.

It is also currently number five on the bestseller list while Meghan Markle’s children’s book – scheduled for publication on June 8 – is at number 24.

Yesterday Kate Middleton called and chatted with four-year-old Mila Sneddon, who was featured in her Hold Still project.

The clips are the first in a series of phone calls the Duchess of Cambridge made with attendees in the fall of last year.

The Duchess’s secret letter in its entirety

Here’s what the Duchess of Cambridge wrote inside the Hidden Books …

Dear researcher,

“The book Hold Still documents a photography project that captured a portrait of our nation as we experienced the first COVID-19 lockdown last year.

The images tell the story of the challenges we all faced, but also how we came together in the most extraordinary moments.

I am proud to have worked closely with the National Portrait Gallery on this project, and am delighted that book fairies across the country are returning the images to the communities at the heart of Hold Still.

Once you have finished browsing the book, please leave it elsewhere in your community for the next person to enjoy.

Best wishes,

Catherine

HRH the Duchess of Cambridge

Kate spoke to a number of the 100 finalists who shared their life experiences during the first Covid lockdown.

In an image titled Shielding Mila, the little girl was shown kissing the kitchen window as her father Scott stood outside.

The youngster, who is undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia, was separated from her father, who had to go to work and could not risk introducing coronavirus into Falkirk’s family home.

Mila started the call by saying, “Hello Your Royal Highness,” with Kate responding: “Hello. Good me, you are so polite Mila. “

The Duchess thanked Mila and her mother Lynda who took the image, for sending in the “fantastic” photos, adding: “We love your photo. “

Kate asked Mila to be separated from her father: “How come you can’t see him for so long?” “

Mila replied: “Because he had to take care of me because I went for treatment. “

The Duchess asked: “Was it really hard not to see him?” “

Mila replied that it was and recounted the moment they were reunited after seven weeks, saying, “When he entered the house I was so surprised. “

Mila also asked the Duchess: “Do you have a costume? “

Kate replied, “I’m not wearing a princess costume right now, I’m scared Mila. Do you have a lot of outfits yourself? “

Mila replied, “Yeah” and told the Duchess that her favorite color was pink.

The Duchess replied: ‘OK, well I have to make sure that I will try to find myself a pink dress so that I hope, when one day I hope, Mila will meet us and then I will remember to wear my dress. pink for you. Would that be good?

And the little girl responded excitedly, “Yeah! “
