Last week the Kensington Palace Instagram page revealed some of the impressive entries so far, including a family celebrating a grandma’s birthday, two hospital workers in PPE and a seemingly unimpressed lad getting a lockdown haircut.

And now, the page has shared another set of standout entries which tap intosome of the key issues families have faced since the coronavirus outbreak began.

The collection of snaps ranges from the heartbreaking to light-hearted, with categories coveringHelpers and Heroes, Your New Normal and Acts of Kindness.

Ahead of the images shared on the Kensington Royal Instagram stories, a quote from the Duchess herself was also shared.

It read: "Hold still aims to capture a portrait of the nation, a spirit of the nation, what everyone is going through at this time.

"Photographs reflecting resilience, bravery and kindness – all those things that people are experiencing."

Kate, 38, who is heading up the project, is a patron of the National Portrait Gallery, and is a keen amateur photographer herself. 

The aim of the project is to capture the UK during the pandemic, which will see Kate select 100 photographs to go on display at London’s National Portrait Gallery. 

Kate has already revealed she has been “struck” by the “incredible” entries already submitted, with more and more being submitted daily.

Speaking of the images she's seen so far, she said: “they've given us an insight into the experiences and stories of people.

"Some desperately sad images showing the human tragedy of this pandemic and there are uplifting pictures showing people coming together to support the vulnerable.”

For the project, people from across the UK are invited, and encouraged,to submit a portrait that's been taken during these extraordinary times.

They must also include a short written submission which outlines the emotions of those depicted in the shot.

The exhibition is free to enter, and all ages and abilities have been welcomed to apply. 

Organisers said the photos will be judged on the emotion and experience rather than technical expertise.

To submit an image visit www.npg.org.uk before June 18.
