Royal fans have jumped to the defence of Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge, 39 was being trolled following the announcement of her first book, Hold Still.

The book was created from the Duchess’ photo project which captured the nation as we faced the coronavirus pandemic.

The wife of Prince William announced the news on Twitter alongside a picture of herself with a camera and the words: "Through Hold Still, I wanted to use the power of photography to create a lasting record of what we were all experiencing – to capture individuals' stories and document significant moments for families and communities as we lived through the pandemic."

But the announcement fuelled uproar from one particular onlooker who replied saying: “Oh god, this is so self absorbed it's painful.”

“How is a project featuring photographs taken by the people of the UK and benefiting charities self-absorbed?” an onlooker slammed back in response to the negative feedback, with another adding: “Well said.”

A fellow spectator took to the Twitter chain to defend The Duchess of Cambridge from the trolling she had received and urged people to change the way they used social media.

“A few trolls here which is a big shame,” they said. “Why can’t people just scroll if they don’t like the post.”

“We all need to change the way we use social media else we all become bitter and awful people,” the angered Twitter user continued.

“Well done to the Duchess of Cambridge for this great project,” they gushed. “I’ve pre-ordered!”

“Totally agree!!!” agreed an onlooker with four red love heart emojis.

Another fan of the Duchess showed their support saying: “Catherine, you’re such a beautiful person, inside and out, and this is reflected in the projects you undertake and your unwavering commitment to them. Well done!”

However someone else hit out at The Duchess of Cambridge about the relationship she has with her sister in law, Meghan Markle.

“Maybe you should look back about you treated your only sister in law???” they asked.

To which a royal fan also took a stand for Kate replying: “You mean when she apologised immediately and meghan quoted her as a good person? Mmmk”

This is in wake of the jaw dropping interview between Meghan, her husband Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey.

During the televised chat, Meghan accused the royal family of refusing to correct the rumours of her making Kate cry while they were doing a bridesmaid’s fitting.

"A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something—yes, the issue was correct, about the flower girl dresses—and it made me cry and it really hurt my feelings,” Meghan said during the TV interview, also confirming that Kate “owned it, and she apologized and she brought me flowers and a note apologizing.”
