- Moment came as Duchess of Cambridge visited Chitral district on Wednesday
- Duchess has described herself as an 'enthusiastic amateur photographer'
- In 2015 Kate shared first non-professional official photograph of a royal baby
The Duchess of Cambridge appears keen to capture memories from the Pakistan tour after being seen carrying her camera during a royal visit yesterday.
Kate Middleton, 37, was seen with camera in hand as she walked through the Kalash tribe village in Bumburate Valley yesterday alongside Prince William, 37.
The royal has described herself in the past as an 'enthusiastic amateur photographer' and has been widely praised for her portraits of her children, Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1.
Kate and William had plenty to snap on the third day of their royal tour of Pakistan, taking in a glacier in the Hindu Kush mountain range, before visiting a village in a valley in Chitral, which has been hit by flash flooding in recent years.
Royal fans may get to see the images Kate's captured in the future, seeing as the Duchess previously shared some of her snaps taken on an official visit to Borneo in 2012.

Kate was seen carrying the camera as she and William visited the Bumburate Valley in Pakistan's northern Chitral District.
She appeared relaxed as she walked through the street with the camera, a short way in front of William, before the couple went on to meet members of the Kalash tribe.
While Kate has been seen carrying a small Canon camera in the past, this camera appeared to have a large lens attached.
The royal has been seen capturing memories during royal tours in the past, and was seen snapping pictures during her trip to Canada in 2011.

Dress down like a Duchess in Kate's boots by Really Wild
The Duchess of Cambridge has debuted some amazing looks so far on the Royal Tour of Pakistan, including a beautiful embellished Jenny Packham dress last night!
Today it was a slightly more casual affair, seeing Kate don a leather utility vest by Really Wild layered over a brown shirt, finished off with a tan skirt and chocolate knee-high boots, also by Really Wild.
Both the vest and the boots are recycled pieces that we've spotted the Duchess wearing before. We're not surprised she's turned to these trusty boots again! The suede material gives them a luxe feel but the flat style is super practical... the perfect balance!
Now is the perfect time of year to invest in a new pair of boots and these knee high numbers will look just as good with jeans, as they will with a midi dress or skirt.

Photographs taken during her 2012 trip to Borneo were later released, including a black-and-white image of an orangutan, and a snap of a misty Mount Kinabalu.
Kate has demonstrated considerable skill behind the camera over the years - with rumours she's set to take over the KensingtonRoyal Instagram page.
Hands-on parent Kate became the first member of the royal family to take the first official photographs of a royal baby back in 2015, when she released her snaps of newborn Charlotte in the arms of her big brother Prince George.
The Duchess was also seen snapping pictures for her photo album on the royal tour of Canada in 2011
She has since captured several official photographs of George, five, Charlotte, three, and Louis, one, to mark important family milestones. Royal fans often wait in trepidation for the pictures, which typically capture their subjects looking natural and relaxed.
In June, the Duchess of Cambridge was pictured sharing her photography tips with students at a workshop run by her patronage in south-west London as she was named the new patron of the Royal Photographic Society.
Kate succeeded the Queen as the figurehead of the body, which was officially supported by the monarch for 67 years.
The Duchess also snapped pictures on her trip to Borneo in 2012, with one black-and-white image featuring an orangutan
Another of the Duchess' images she published from a trip to Borneo in 2012 was a shot of a misty Mount Kinabalu - the highest point in Borneo at 13,400ft above sea level
The Duchess's passion for photography dates back to before she became a member of The Firm.
Kate has showcased an artistic flare since her teens, having studied art history at the University of St. Andrews, where she met Prince William.
She produced her undergraduate thesis on the era of photography - in particular, photographs of children.
