Kate Middleton’s secret talent has been officially endorsed by The Queen

Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth

Announced today, the Queen has passed the patronage of the Royal Photographic Society to The Duchess of Cambridge.

The royal spoke about their family photography outings during a visit to Action for Children centre in Kingston, West London yesterday.

The event was timed to coincide with the announcement from Kensington Palace, that Kate, will take over as royal patron for the organisation, a role previously held, by Her Majesty The Queen, for the last 67 years.

The Duchess teamed the pretty frock with her favourite pair of Castaner "Carina" wedges and a dainty pair of gold leaf earrings from Catherine Zoraida, Daily Mail reports.

Kate told how creative Prince George and Princess Charlotte "love" taking photographs outside.

"The Duchess has a longstanding interest in photography, and this patronage will further highlight the beneficial impact that art and creativity can have on emotional well-being, particularly for children and young people", a press release from the palace reads. When the Cambridges release new photos of their children, Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one, the photographer isn't a professional, but rather their mum, Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge was picture ideal when she encouraged a group of budding young photographers to pursue the artform, as she was named the new patron of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS). The workshops were run by photographers Jillian Edelstein and Harry Borden and covered a variety of topics, including portraits, light and color.

The Duchess of Cambridge's secret photography skills have been hiding in plain sight for years.

Neeve said: "I really liked her, she was very positive and said we had to keep it up because she liked our photos". "George and Charlotte love it when we do that".

Her new patronage, founded in 1853 and one of the world's oldest photo societies, presented 10 cameras to 10 of the children.
