The issuance of the book was announced through a post by Kensington Palace’s official Instagram account.. The book will accommodate 100 portraits.
“Through Hold Still, I wanted to use the power of photography to create a lasting record of what we were all experiencing – to capture individuals’ stories and document significant moments for families and communities as we lived through the pandemic,” wrote Middleton.
