The Duchess of Cambridge takes on new role
After 67 years as patron of the Royal Photographic Society, Her Majesty The Queen has passed this role onto Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
The Duchess is already a great supporter of the arts being Patron of the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum. She has also published many of her own photographic portraits of her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The announcement by Kensington Palace was made when The Duchess visited a photography workshop for children. This event was a collaboration between the Royal Photographic Society and Action for Children, one of The Duchess’s charities, which is celebrating its 150 year anniversary this year.
The RPS, which is a registered charity, has enjoyed Royal Patronage since 1853.
