IT WAS a candid moment when one of Britain’s sailing greats was explaining to one of the nation’s favourite royals the work he does.
The moment was captured by a photographer working for The News and his photograph has been nominated for a prestigious award.
The online public vote for the News Media Association’s Royal Rota photography competition opened yesterday.
To vote for Allan Hutchings and his photograph, titled ‘The Duchess of Cambridge Sailing Near Portsmouth’, go to newsmediauk.org/Royal-Rota-in-Action-new and click on his image of the Duchess.
The picture is one of 48 images shortlisted for the ‘Royal Rota in Action’ award by the News Media Association. The winner will receive vouchers for photography equipment.
