Kate Middleton would have probably become a photographer or child educator, or maybe a psychologist if she hadn't become a part of the royal family.

The Duchess of Cambridge has stated multiple times that photography is her passion and her works can be seen on the official Instagram page of Kensington Palace as she occasionally posts portraits of three children took by her camera.

Kate Middleton reportedly gave up the career close to her heart to marry Prince William and become an official member of the British monarchy.

Back in 2006, Carole and Michael Middleton's older daughter got a job as a part-time accessories buyer at a London-based clothing store, Jigsaw Junior. At the time, Kate was considering a career in photography, which is one of her great passions.

Notwithstanding, the Duchess of Cambridge had to put this dream aside when she and Prince William announced their engagement in 2010. It is common knowledge that royals are not allowed to have personal accounts or share private pictures.

Albeit, luckily to the mother-of-three, she was able to continue working with this particular art field. She is a keen photographer and an Honorary Member of the Royal Photographic Society — the patronage that the Queen bestowed Kate Middleton earlier in 2019.

Moreover, Duchess Catherine often shares photos of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis via the Kensington Palace profile, marking their special dates, such as birthdays and first day at schools.

In March 2018, Prince William's wife of 8 years also became the first Royal Patron of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London — the patronage that reflects her interest in the visual arts, photography, textiles, and design as a whole.

The contemporary royal family is not the royal family as several decades ago. Rules have been changed, the royal protocol has been slightly amended, the Queen has stopped being too strict, and everything seems a bit simpler and modernized, which is admittedly incredible for everyone.
