If you've always been curious about what Kate Middleton does in her pockets of spare time, you might be surprised to learn about her favorite hobby—and that she's really good at it. Yep, even royals have to feed their creative passions.

Even though the Duchess of Cambridge has spent a lot of her life in front of cameras, she's actually quite adept at being behind one: Before becoming a royal, she worked for her family's business—the UK-based event-planning company Party Pieces—doing photography work, and her love of the art continued into her relationship with Prince William. According to Vogue, she was the shutterbug responsible for the first official photo of Princess Charlotte, as well as for Prince George's first-day-of-preschool snapshots.

And I'm not talking about standard iPhone photography, either: Middleton's skills are so impressive that she was granted a lifetime honorary membership by the Royal Photographic Society. Unfortunately, likely due to royal protocol, Middleton's body of public work is very limited, but we can all certainly dream of a world in which she could share artfully composed insider shots on Instagram from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May wedding. (I, for one, want to know the real deal about that alleged banana cake!)

Here are three ways to get the manicure Kate Middleton copied from the Queen. Or, find out which single food helped ease her morning sickness.
