Matt took these pictures back in 2018 year, explaining why Prince William and Kate Middleton decided to choose these images for publication. Matt said the editor: “This is truly a beautiful image, isn’t it? This morning when I saw that it was published, I missed the message that it will be printed on the cover page of today’s edition of Hello!”.

He continued: “This was taken last year, just at the time when I went to the annual Christmas card from the Royal family. It’s a very funny and touching picture. It demonstrates the unity of the family, their happiness, all seen in pictures. This picture is slightly reminiscent of the defocused photo, but the warmth and unity which is present on it… I think that’s why they chose it”.
Speaking about the Duchess and about how to be a photographer, shooting the Royal family, Matt added: “People always tell me that they are very beautiful family, caring and sharing. But honestly, I feel the pressure while shooting. The first time was extremely awkward, the second and third too. Better now, but still, because of the burden of responsibility I’m a little nervous”.
Matt also revealed his favorite picture of the family, namely, a great shot where a smiling Kate holding Prince Louis immediately after his baptism.
Rosie and Matt also discussed the passion of the Duchess to the art of photography, and Matt noted her talent in choosing the angle for the shot. “She’s an amazing photographer” – he said.
