How nice?

So, today is an exciting day for Kate Middleton.

The Queen has passed on one of her most treasured patrons to her granddaughter-in-law.

Announced today, the Queen has passed the patronage of the Royal Photographic Society to The Duchess of Cambridge.

This is a pretty major deal, especially because photography is one of Kate's passions.

The Kensington Palace Instagram shared the news earlier today, writing:

"Her Majesty The Queen became Patron of the Royal Photographic Society, one of the world's oldest photographic societies, in 1952."

Her Majesty The Queen became Patron of the Royal Photographic Society, one of the world's oldest photographic societies, in 1952. Today The Queen has passed the patronage of the Royal Photographic Society to The Duchess of Cambridge, ahead of The Duchess’s visit to a photography workshop run by The Royal Photographic Society and Action for Children, another of The Duchess’s patronages. The Royal Photographic Society was founded in 1853 with the objective of promoting the art and science of photography, and in the same year received Royal patronage from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The Duchess of Cambridge has a longstanding interest in photography, and this patronage will further highlight the beneficial impact that art and creativity can have on emotional wellbeing, particularly for children and young people. Swipe to see some of The Duchess’s photographs taken over the past few years of her family. ? PA/Kensington Palace/HRH The Duchess of Cambridge @royalphotographicsociety @actionforchildrenuk
