Exclusive: Kate Middleton opens up about Prince George in secret call

> The Duchess of Cambridge unveiled the final 100 images for her Hold Still photography project earlier in September

The Duchess of Cambridge has shared details of Prince George‘s school subjects in a surprise phone call this week.

Kate shocked one of the entrants from her Hold Still photography project when she called to speak to her young daughter, who was the subject of the touching portrait. And during the call, the Duchess revealed a topic her eldest son Prince George, seven, is currently studying.

Ceri Edwards’ photograph entitled “Be Safe Daddy X” was chosen as one of the final 100 images for the National Portrait Gallery’s digital exhibition, which was unveiled earlier this month.

The moving image shows Poppy sharing a cuddle with her father, a paramedic, before he left for a night shift during the COVID-19 pandemic.


“The Duchess was absolutely wonderful,” Ceri from Newport, South Wales, tells HELLO!. “She asked Poppy about her favourite topic at school and put her at ease. She asked Poppy how she felt when her Daddy had to go to work during the pandemic and Poppy said that she was very scared and worried about him, but very proud too.

“They talked about how important cuddles are and how they both love to give them.

“The Duchess also spoke to my husband (Poppy’s Dad) about how things were for him as a paramedic during the height of the pandemic.”

Back in May, Kate invited people of all ages across the UK to submit a photo that they had taken during lockdown, aimed to capture and document the spirit, the mood, the hopes, the fears and the feelings of the nation as we continue to deal with the coronavirus outbreak.

The royal mum-of-three appeared on This Morning to talk to presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about the project with one of her patronages, the National Portrait Gallery.

Ceri tells HELLO!: “The Duchess thanked us for our photograph and said how it resonated with her and the other judges and showed not only the special bond between father and daughter, but real emotion of the time.

“The Duchess was so down-to-earth and was so wonderful with Poppy. We talked about Poppy and Prince George being in the same school year [three] and their current school topics [Poppy’s is Brazil and Beyond and George’s is The Active World – Volcanoes].

“It was a very special day and something we treasured and will always remember.”
