Kate Middleton might be a royal, but that doesn't mean she's a lot different from other moms. Just like any mom, she takes too many pictures of her kids. 

And her children aren't too thrilled about it. 

The Duchess of Cambridge recently opened up about her habit of taking too many photographs of her family during a chat with fellow mom Ceri Edwards, a winner of the Hold Still photography contest launched by the Duchess in 2020.

While talking to the photographer mom, whose award-winning image showed her paramedic husband hugging their daughter before a shift, Kate admitted she takes so many pictures that her children have started protesting. 

"Everyone's like, 'mummy, please stop taking photographs'," Middleton joked. 

Ceri added that she persists because taking photos as a mom is "a lovely thing".

"You look back and see how much the children have grown".
