Is there anything she can't do? After iconic photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte were revealed to be taken by Kate Middleton, the world realized just how talented of a photographer the duchess is. And now, about a year later, she's getting official recognition for her skills. The duchess has received a lifetime honorary membership to the Royal Photographic Society.

The Mirror reports that Kate is the latest member of the royal family to be associated with the charity, which promotes photography and supports photographers. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were both early patrons of the society. 

Kate strayed from the tradition of hiring a professional photographer to take official photos of a new royal baby by taking the first photos of Princess Charlotte. In one shot, Prince George is seen cradling his baby sister and giving her a kiss at her home in Norfolk, Amner Hall. In another photo, the siblings are seen cuddling together in an armchair.

Such beautiful photos. 

Kate also took the official photos that were released of the little princess for her first birthday. 

Without a doubt, she's a talented photographer.

In addition to photos of her children, the duchess also released a series of photos from her tour of South East Asia and the South Pacific in 2012, which included artsy shots of Mount Kinabalu, the highest point in Borneo.

Clearly, the duchess's latest patronage is a perfect match for her. It's likely that both she and the Royal Photographic Society will benefit big-time.

Oh, Katie. You really do it all.
