The Cambridges are undoubtedly one of the most talked-about families in the world.

Following their role elevation over the coronavirus pandemic and their mention in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Oprah interview, it’s hardly surprising that Prince William and Kate Middleton are making non-stop headlines right now.

The Duchess of Cambridge usually makes the most news, from the announcement that she's entering the world of publishing to her handy viral face mask trick.

It was a sweet act of kindness that made headlines this week as Kate's new photography book, Hold Still 2020, was published.

The Duchess of Cambridge has been marking the occasion by leaving special copies around the UK for people to find, with personal notes inside.

'Let the search begin!' the Cambridges captioned a sweet video of Kate leaving books for members of the public to find. 'We’ve joined @bookfairies_uk for the day to share copies of Hold Still around the UK with you.'

The post continued: 'Each copy is adorned with a gold book fairy sticker, gold ribbon, and has a letter from The Duchess tucked inside. To make this activity even more special, book fairies, the Hold Still judges and participants of the final 100 images are leaving copies at places that gave them hope during the lockdown.

'This special book documenting the unique collection of photographs goes on sale today in UK bookshops and online.'

This is lovely.
