‘Harry and Meghan’ ski scene a ‘reminder’ of ‘how smart’ Kate Middleton is to take photos of kids, expert says
James called the scene a “reminder” of how clever Kate is in photographing her and William’s children.
“Young children normally need gentle and playful coaxing in a safe environment to smile happily for a photo shoot,” the expert said.
“Being alone in the snow, having a bank of strange photographers yelling at you non-stop, and not particularly friendly, would be agony for any child, even a royal one,” James continued.
“It was another reminder of how smart Kate has been to take most of her own children’s pictures herself,” she said.
Kate has a well documented interest in photography. Part of that includes taking photos of Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 4. Often, the photos taken by Kate will be the ones she and William will use as their children’s official birthday portraits.
For example, Kate took the images used to publicly mark George, Charlotte and Louis’s birthdays in 2022.

Meanwhile, “Charles stood off camera, beaming and smiling and throwing on a headscarf to encourage William and Harry to have fun and laugh.”
