A royal photographer has been met with heaps of praise once again for catching a “one in a million” shot of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Flocking to social media to applaud Samir Hussein, one royal fan said, “Another set of gorgeous pics from Samir Hussein.”

Another joked, “Every time it rains, they say: ‘Activate Samir Hussein.’”

Speaking out about his talent for capturing royals in the rain, Samir said it’s something he’s incredibly proud of. 

“It's a one in a million when all the elements you could wish for as a photographer come together - perfect timing, great lighting, strong symbolism, and amazing subjects make this a magical photo I am extremely proud of”

In true British fashion, the Duchess apologized for “bringing England’s rain with us,” as she addressed the school’s pupils in an assembly. 

She said, “I hope you didn't get too wet coming here and apologies for bringing this British weather with us.”

Before adding, “Thank you so much for such a warm welcome.”
