Countess submits Mosque snapshot to #HoldStill2020

After her visit to the Shah Jahan Mosque in Woking (click here), The Countess of Wessex has submitted this image to #HoldStill2020 – the National Portrait Gallery photography project that’s spearheaded by the Duchess of Cambridge. It aims to reflect the spirit and mood of the nation during the coronavirus crisis, captured in snapshots of people across the UK. The Countess of Wessex took this shot on her phone while volunteering with Ali and others at the Woking Mosque and posted it on The Royal Family Instagram with this message: “Ali helped to establish the Mosque’s food parcel delivery service, which has so far helped 400 households in need. His smile captures the enthusiasm for helping others that is so evident amongst the volunteers at the Mosque.” You can submit your own photograph to Hold Still (by 18th June) – click here to find out how.
