    Duchess Catherine has channelled her sister-in-law Duchess Meghan as she appeared in a new video.

    The Duchess of Cambridge appeared in a new video to appeal to fans to take part in her special lockdown photography project Hold Still.

    “There have been so many amazing entries to Hold Still over the last few weeks,” she said in the lovely video broadcasted from the Cambridges’ Anmer Hall home.

    “From families up and down the country showing how they are adapting to life during lockdown, through to some of the most amazing NHS and social care staff who are putting their lives on the line to save the lives of others.

    “But it isn’t too late to take part. So please take a moment to capture what life is like for you, because together I hope that we can build a lasting illustration of just how our country pulled together during the pandemic.

    “I can’t wait to share the final 100 images with you.”

    Today The Duchess of Cambridge launches a community photography project spearheaded by you! In collaboration with the @NationalPortraitGallery, we are asking you to help capture the spirit, the mood, the hopes, the fears and the feelings of the UK as we continue to deal with the Coronavirus outbreak. Completely free and open to all ages and abilities, Hold Still will capture a snapshot of the UK at this time, creating a collective portrait of lockdown which will reflect resilience and bravery, humour and sadness, creativity and kindness, and human tragedy and hope. One hundred shortlisted portraits will feature in a gallery without walls – a one of a kind digital exhibition open to all this August. The images can be captured on phones or cameras and each image will be assessed on the emotion and experience it conveys rather than its photographic quality or technical expertise. Submit your images through the link in bio and share your portraits on Instagram by tagging @KensingtonRoyal #HoldStill2020 to be in with a chance to be featured on our channel throughout the project. #StayAtHome

    But as the Duchess appealed to fans, she seemed to be channelling her sister-in-law Duchess Meghan in her choice of outfit.

    The royal wore a gorgeous fitted bright blue dress by Stella McCartney, which was reminiscent of the standout Victoria Beckham number that Duchess Meghan stunned in during the Sussexes’ royal farewell tour when the Sussexes took their iconic rain photo.

    But it’s not the first time the Duchess of Cambridge wore the lovely frock and it seems as though the dress has a special significance when it comes to this important lockdown photography project.

    Catherine she debuted the dress back in 2012 when she visited the National Portrait Gallery – the same organisation who she has teamed up with for the Hold Still project.

    So it seems to be a lovely nod to her partner in this meaningful lockdown photography project.

    How thoughtful of the Duchess!
