August 20 2018

Every time an adorable photo of the Cambridge children is released, one significant similarity stands out - they're all taken by the Duchess of Cambridge (or mum!).

Despite being contrary to royal protocol, there is a special reason Kate is always the one behind the lens.

Kate, who is known to have a real love of photography, asks that in exchange for these intimate and private snaps the British media grant her children general privacy day to day.

'Nothing is a given, but in terms of managing to keep a good relationship with the British media, it’s in William and Kate’s interest to release photos', royal commentator Victoria Arbiter told Cosmopolitan.
