In a statement obtained by People, the Duchess said: “We’ve all been struck by some of the incredible images we’ve seen which have given us an insight into the experiences and stories of people across the country.
”Some desperately sad images showing the human tragedy of this pandemic and other uplifting pictures showing people coming together to support those more vulnerable.”
Kate, alongside a panel of judges, was able to select her favourite photographs which will be displayed on billboards for four weeks.
The winners will also see their portraits exhibited on October 23 at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
The Duke and the Duchess shared images of their outing on their Instagram account.
The pictures showed them both admiring the billboards with a caption that read: “Having seen the incredible response from people around the UK to the digital exhibition, we have brought #HoldStill2020 to the streets of the UK.
“Today The Duke and Duchess visited the Hold Still posters on display in Waterloo, London to see some of the portraits up close.
“With the support of @NationalPortraitGallery and @CoopUk, Hold Still portraits will be on display in 112 sites across 80 towns, cities, and boroughs over the coming weeks.
Ms Duah submitted the image “All in This Together”, which featured her co-workers Amelia Chowdhury and Dipal Samuel, who were working as pharmacy technicians in the Intensive Care Unit.
The photograph showed the technicians writing their names and drawing smiley faces and love hearts on their PPE aprons during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Thanking Ms Duah for her submission, Kate said: “Thank you so much for the image.
“It had such an impact it captured the moment, it was a look behind the scenes.
“The story of what you experienced is so important.”
