Kate Middleton doesn’t just shoot official portraits of her children. Her fans unanimously celebrate her as a professional photographer. Now the Duchess even pulled the trigger for the cover of Country Life magazine, which is dedicating an issue to Camilla’s 75th birthday.

Wiltshire – When the Duchess of Cambridge (40) puts her finger on the trigger of a camera, the result is impressive. Not only the fans of the amateur photographer are celebrating her pictures and the brand new cover photo, the Kate Middleton shot by the Duchess of Cornwall (74) for Country Life magazine. Publisher Mark Hedges (58) is already thinking about the next order for Kate’s sharp eye.

“Country Life” gets royal power in a double pack with Kate and Camilla

The occasion is a double anniversary. Duchess Camilla celebrates her 75th birthday on July 17 and Country Life magazine celebrates its 125th anniversary issue with the daughter-in-law of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II (96). Fans erupted in praise of Kate’s magazine portraits, congratulating the “#DuchessofCornwall and the #DuchessofCambridge on a “great collaboration,” as one fan wrote, adding, “Love it!!!”.

Star photographer Kate staged her model Duchess Camilla relaxed on a bench with a basket full of flowers ready to be planted. The Duchess of Cornwall’s country estate Ray Mill House in Lacock in Wiltshire serves as the location, whose gardens otherwise serve as a place of retreat. Another picture shows the mother of three bending down in action, looking at the wife of the heir to the throne, Prince Charles (73).

“Beautiful!”: Kate Middleton and Camilla wow fans at the cover shoot

“The Doc [Duchess of Cambridge] could be a professional photographer in another life”a Royal fan notes about Kate, who also benefits from her passion as patron of the Royal Photographic Society. “Kate should publish a photo book of her photos” suggests another user was. A third responded enthusiastically: “Well, I could almost cry just looking at this! Very beautiful!”

Editor Mark Hedges can congratulate himself on the “magnificent scene”. For him it’s just a beginning. Kate, whose paintings are also on display in an exhibition at London’s Imperial War Museum should soon be booked by other magazines: “The photos are great and we would be delighted to be able to offer the Duchess of Cambridge another job,” he already announced.
