“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.

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 tourwhen 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.
