The Duchess of Cambridge's penchant for photography is no secret; last year, she was made an honorary lifetime member of the Royal Photographic Society for her family portraits and tour photos. Kate Middleton has clicked her husband, Prince William, and children — Prince George and Princess Charlotte — on several occasions.

Middleton has been protective about her children from the time they have been born. From their clothing to where they are seen, the Duchess ensures that she is in charge of everything related to her family. She even clicks photographs of her kids herself. She took snaps of Prince George on his first day at nursery and all of their birthday photos rather than calling for a well-renowned photographer for taking the snaps, according to the Royal Central website.

Middleton has the knack for blending high street fashion along with her tailored and recycling outfits. Similarly, when it comes to taking photographs of her children, she wants to be resourceful.

Gina Jones from "The Baby Show," which is sponsored by Bumpkins told Mail Online: “It shows how modern Kate and William are by being more accessible and having a hands on approach." She added: “It also shows that they are resourceful with money as you often see Kate in high street fashion and sometimes repeating outfits and so by taking her own photos this again shows how she is savvy with money."

“The couple like to exercise control of the images of them as a family,” she said.

Simon Apps, director and photographer of PR photo agency, Professional Images, said: "I don’t think the Duchess is looking for a career in photography, but she could certainly have an eye on taking the position of 'Royal photographer," a title that was bestowed on Lord Lichfield who passed away from a stroke in 2005.

"Like him, she is perfectly, if not better, placed to capture those intimate spontaneous moments within the Royal Family for which he was so famous," Apps told Mail Online.

Even Middleton's official profile notes the former art student's love for photography. "Other hobbies include more recreational sports such as hill walking, tennis, sailing, swimming, and the arts, including photography and painting," reads the profile. Her fondness for remaining behind the lens saw her taking photographs as part of her role during her time working within Party Pieces, a family company owned and run by her parents, Hello! Magazine reported.

The Duchess has shown her photography skills during royal engagements as well. She showed clicked photographs in the Borneo jungle by taking a series of stunning shots that were later released to the public, reports said.

Last year, when the pictures of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, clicked by the Duchess, were released, Hugo Rittson Thomas told People: "I thought they were wonderful pictures, beautifully shot."

“She captured the joy, happiness and youth of her children which is a wonderful thing and sometimes hard to do as a parent,” Rittson Thomas said. Rittson Thomas is one of the UK's most respected portrait photographers, who had spent the last four years, working on 42 portraits of the Queen and various members of the royal household.
