The Prince and Princess of Wales are renowned for their sense of humor and competitive nature. Additionally, John Stillwell, a former PA royal photographer, is someone who is completely familiar with this dynamic of their relationship. The most amazing, never-before-heard anecdote about William and Catherine that John shares in the most recent episode of A Right Royal Podcast, William and Kate: The future of the monarchy, will have you in fits of laughter.
William and Catherine used royal photographers to help them capture priceless family moments before Catherine took up photography as a hobby.
When William and Catherine took a brief private vacation with their kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, in 2016, John traveled to the French Alps in his official capacity as a PA royal photographer.
John, who has seen many of the most famous incidents involving the royal family, had taken on hundreds of special assignments.
But due to bad weather on the day of the shoot in the French Alps, the session almost didn’t happen. But thanks to John’s quick thinking, everything worked out in the end, even with George and Charlotte, who were never supposed to be there.
Prior to retiring in 2019, John, who documented the royal family for more than 30 years, described the amazing snowball fight that broke out thanks to a very cheeky Catherine.
The episode’s hosts, Andrea Caamano and Emmy Griffiths, also spoke with royal author Robert Jobson, who has written numerous books about the couple and has covered the royal family since 1990, as well as HELLO! royal editor Emily Nash.
The CEO of The Passage, Mick Clarke, who has known the Prince for more than ten years and is a patron, and the CEO of Baby Basics, Cat Ross, are also featured.
