Even during a pandemic, whatever Kate Middleton wears swiftly sells out.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, appeared on Britain’s “This Morning” on Thursday to announce a new photography project called “Hold Still” with the National Portrait Gallery.
Middleton sported a fresh blowout along with a yellow tree-print dress by British brand Raey, which originally retailed for around $600 before being marked down to under $200 — at which point the Duchess’ endorsement wiped it out of stock.
The colorful midi features long sleeves, a nipped-in waist and a flowing hem, and its print is right in line with Middleton’s love of gardens and nature.
Together with the National Portrait Gallery, the Duchess is inviting the public to submit photos that “capture the spirit, the mood, the hopes, the fears and the feelings of the UK as we continue to deal with the Coronavirus outbreak,” according to an Instagram post shared by the official Kensington Royal account on Thursday.
The project is focused on three core themes — “Helpers and Heroes,” “Your New Normal” and “Acts of Kindness.”
One hundred chosen submissions will appear in a digital “gallery without walls” in August, which will be open to all.
“‘Hold Still’ will capture a snapshot of the UK at this time, creating a collective portrait of lockdown which will reflect resilience and bravery, humor and sadness, creativity and kindness, and human tragedy and hope,” the royals’ post explained.
