Kate Middleton on Friday released the photobook “Hold Still” which consists of portraits taken by the public. The photographs depict the lifestyles of British people under the COVID-19 Pandemic lockdown.
Funds raised from the sale of the book will be given to the National Portrait Gallery and the British mental health facility, Mind. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their official Instagram account on Friday shared photographs and a video displaying Kate Middleton with the book.
Today the final 100 Hold Still images have become part of the Gallery’s national Collection, joining over 250,000 photographs spanning from the 1840s through to the present day. pic.twitter.com/j67iJo8m5N

As per the caption on the post “The Duchess of Cambridge is working with The Book Fairies to distribute free copies of her Hold Still book on its launch day.” The Book Fairies is an enterprise that encourages people to pass on books after they have read them, leaving them in locations for others to discover and enjoy.
The concept is that the book will be passed on, which will allow others to read the book. Hold Still is a project launched by the Duchess after the first lockdown.
