Uncommon images of Princess Catherine, one of the most photographed people on Earth

She Prince and Princess of Wales are one of the most photographed royal couples around the world.

Prince William and Kate have carried out hundreds of engagements across the UK and overseas throughout their almost 13-year marriage.

Royal photographers have captured some incredible candid snaps of the pair, as well as documenting the activities and work they get up to during their outings, but it’s very rare for William and Kate to pose directly for the cameras.

A number of official portraits have been released of the Waleses over the years to capture special moments, such as birthdays and anniversaries, but there have also been times when the couple have posed for a snap in front of an iconic landmark or in the back of a car ahead of a fancy film premiere.

Take a look back over the years…
