The palace hopes it will provide a snapshot “creating a collective portrait of lockdown which will reflect resilience and bravery, humor and sadness, creativity and kindness, and human tragedy and hope.”

“It will also act as a reminder of the significance of human connection in times of adversity, and that although we were physically apart, as a community and nation, we all faced and rose to the challenge together,” Kate's office says.

Submissions for "Hold Still" can be made between May 7 and June 18 at npg.org.uk.
