Kate Middleton showed off a side of herself that we rarely get to see this week when she became emotional as she praised the frontline workers whose photos helped to capture the struggles of the medical staffers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a video that was released over the weekend, Kate spoke to Johannah Churchill about the portrait she took of her colleague Melanie. The image was later displayed in a massive mural that was part of a national exhibition for Kate’s Hold Still photo project.

People Magazine reported that Kate’s voice could be heard cracking as she talked about how much she admires Churchill, saying, “It has become such an iconic portrait that represents a lot of what frontline workers have experienced and what those of you across the U.K. have put your lives on the line in looking after all of us this year.”

“It certainly touched us in terms of the judging panel. We felt it was a hugely moving image,” Kate, 38, continued. “I think it has, like you say, it’s really resonated with lots of the public too.”

Churchill had snapped the photo of Melanie wearing personal protective equipment as she helped out at a clinic for COVID-19 patients. It was lated submitted to Kate’s Hold Still photography project that has been displayed on posters and billboards around the U.K.

“I’m glad that the image of Melanie can feel representative of a group of people,” Churchill told Kate. “And it’s not about our story, it’s about everyone’s story. I like that that is what she represents. But obviously, we have our own story that’s attached to that image too. It is a powerful thing.”

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who submitted an image to Hold Still,” Kate said. “I launched the project with the National Portrait Gallery back in May because I wanted to find a way to allow everyone to share their stories and experiences of lockdown.”

“We have been thrilled by the response to the project and I couldn’t be more grateful to each and every one of the 31,000 people who submitted an image,” she added. “It was so hard to select the final 100 photographs, but we hope we have created a collective portrait of our nation, reflecting on what others have experienced as well as our own journeys through this difficult time.”

God bless Kate for going above and beyond to inspire others during this difficult time!
