Kate Middleton Is Now A Member Of The Royal Photographic Society

Kate Middleton — she's a duchess, mother of two, philanthropist and now a royal photographer.

The Royal Photographic Society named her an honorary member. It's a charity that supports photographers and their work.

The society was founded more than a century ago in 1853.

The Duchess of Cambridge was offered a membership because many of her photos have been used as official royal portraits, including Prince George's first day at nursery school and Princess Charlotte around her first birthday

She doesn't just take photos of her family. Middleton also took her camera on a trip to Borneo in 2012 and captured some nature-filled pics. 

The duchess isn't the first member of the British royal family to be involved with The Royal Photographic Society.

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were patrons of the society when it was first starting, and she was the one who allowed the society to use the word "royal" in its title.
