The royal family's official Twitter account also shared photos from the swimming, captioned: "Some more photos of today’s phenomenal efforts in the swimming captured by The Countess of Wessex."

Sophie isn't the only royal family member who likes to be behind the camera on occasion. The Duchess of Cambridge regularly takes professional-level photos of her children, and even shot the Duchess of Cornwall's Country Life portrait.
