Royal photographer Arthur Edwards praised Kate Middleton’s camera skills and admitted that he would have committed murder to have taken the picture of Prince William posing with his children on a swing because it is an ‘absolute winner’.

The Duke of Cambridge, 38, was captured by the Duchess of Cambridge, 39, sitting in their garden at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, with his children Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, on his birthday last year.

The image shows the family beaming at their mother as she snaps away – with Charlotte hugging her father, Louis sitting on William’s lap and George standing behind them.

On ITV’s podcast The Royal Rota, 80-year-old royal photographer Arthur, 80, from London said: ‘The photo I love most that she took is William and the three children on the swing. I would have killed to take that photo.’

Arthur, who has been photographing the royal family since the 1970s, added: ‘Everyone laughs at their mother, and you know only a mother or father can get that photo, and it’s an absolute winner.

‘Charlotte with her arm around daddy, you know, ‘daddy’s girl’. It’s a beautiful photo, I was so full of praise for that.’

The Duchess of Cambridge often backs birthday portraits of her three children, as well as other important family moments.

Speaking of her skills, the royal photographer said, “I’m a great admirer of Kate’s photography, she understood it very quickly.”

Arthur also praised Kate’s 2020 project in which she photographed Holocaust survivors with their grandchildren.

“I recently photographed a Holocaust survivor and his family for an exhibition later this year at the Imperial War Museum, and I was a little — uninspired by what she was doing, but I found she spent two hours beforehand with the family.” spent, talking to them, getting to know them,” he recalls.

“She lit it beautifully and… it was just a beautiful picture. And I told her that, and she said, “Well, I’ve got a lot more to learn,” and I said, “No, you’ve done a great job.”

He added that Kate is now more than just a ‘burger snapper’, explaining: ‘Her photos are beautifully composed, they are beautifully lit and of course she has the best subject in the world. But she delivers.

“I’m kind of a fan of hers now — a fan of not just photography, but the way she made that role so brilliant.

“She has done an amazing job as Duchess of Cambridge. And one day she’ll be the princess of Wales, and one day she’ll be the queen, and she’s just perfect for it. Just perfect.’
