Royal fans were delighted to discover a breathtaking image of Kate Middleton in the rain was taken by the same photographer who captured an iconic shot of Harry and Meghan.

The photograph was taken by Samir Hussein as the royal couple continued their tour of the Bahamas yesterday morning, arriving in the rain at Sybil Strachan Primary School in Nassau.

As they stepped out of their car, the heavens opened, and Mr Hussein captured an astonishing photograph of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge laughing in the rain.

Kate, who was wearing a dress by Self Portrait and jewelery by Bahamian designer by Nadia Irena, said as she walked under an umbrella in the rain: ‘Oh my gosh. The weather, sorry, we’ve brought England’s rain with us. ‘

Images of the moment are reminiscent of shots of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during their farewell tour in March 2020 – which were also captured by Mr Hussein.

After royal fans discovered the connection, one joked: ‘Every time it rains, they say: “Activate Samir Hussein.”‘

Another said: ‘Another set of gorgeous pics from Samir Hussein.’

The earlier images of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle capture the couple giving each other the ‘look of love’ as they made their first post-Megxit appearance in 2020.

The couple were seen stepping out arm-in-arm underneath an umbrella in the pouring rain to attend the Endeavor awards evening at Mansion House in London.

Speaking about the image later, Mr Hussein said: ‘I spoke to some of their team and they were really happy about it and talking about it.’

The photographer went on to describe the image as ‘one in a million’.

He said: ‘It’s a one in a million when all the elements you could wish for as a photographer come together – perfect timing, great lighting, strong symbolism and amazing subjects make this a magical photo I am extremely proud of.’

The recent images of Kate and William were taken as the couple continued their tour of the Bahamas at Sybil Strachan Primary School, where they dropped in on a class to meet pupils and staff, and joined the morning assembly.

In a speech during the assembly, Kate told the children: ‘I hope you didn’t get too wet coming here and apologies for bringing this British weather with us.’ The Duchess added: ‘Thank you so much for such a warm welcome.’

She said the couple’s three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis ‘all love being by the sea’, adding: ‘So I hope they will be able to experience your clear waters and beautiful beaches before too long.’
