Who is Will Warr – videographer who captured Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 10th anniversary video?


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose London-based advertising filmmaker Will Warr to capture their tenth anniversary video, which shows the happy family-of-five playing on a beach and enjoying the garden of their Anmer Hall residence.

To thank supporters for sending ‘kind messages’, the couple released a short montage on the the @kensingtonpalace Instagram page showing Kate Middleton, 39, Prince William, and their three children – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, three – in the great outdoors.

Donning casual-wear and with big smiles on their faces, they appear to be enjoying some quality downtime, climbing sand dunes and sitting around the campfire toasting marshmallows in the countryside in the natural clip which didn’t appear to be staged. 

Will is the owner and creative director of Detail Films, which largely produces branded films and creative campaigns for corporate companies. He also does wedding videos – and has beautifully captured the loving relationship between William and Kate.

Brands he’s worked with include Uber Eats, Red Bull, Miele, Bloom & Wild, Diageo, ergobaby, Puma and Holland Cooper. The slick advertising filmmaker was also behind the recent Tesco Food Love Stories ads.

It’s perhaps telling that William and Kate opted for a videographer of his experience to adeptly present ‘brand Cambridge’ – and if the brief was to capture a ‘normal’ down-to-earth loving family unit with a passion for the outdoors, he has certainly succeeded. 

According to his website, after training as a designer Will set out on a ‘one-man mission to create beautiful, engaging visual content’ – and five years on has ‘a portfolio of world-leading clients with whom he creates story-led branded content, corporate films and commercials’.

From creative design and artistic direction through to post-production, including animation and sound design, Will and his team ‘build close working relationships with clients from initial concept through to high value finished product’.

He’s also one half of film production duo Topjaw, where along with his friend Jesse, he produces videos of ‘his favourite things to eat, drink and do’.

Will, who now boasts 11,700 followers on Instagram and counting, is followed by Made in Chelsea’s Jamie Laing – having produced content for his brand Candy Kittens – and Matt Porteous, the award-winning Royal Family photographer who captured images of the Cambridge family used for their most recent official Christmas card.

When it came to their new anniversary portraits, Will and Kate – who tend to play it safe when it comes to official pictures – turned to celebrity snapper Chris Floyd, best known for his Britpop portraits of the 1990s. His subjects have included Oasis, Supergrass and The Verve, as well as Sir Paul McCartney, David Bowie and artist David Hockney.

The photographs are glamorous and glossy, but nonetheless natural. Kate and William are pictured standing in the courtyard at their official London residence as well as sitting in the garden. In each, it is clear the couple have an easy, affectionate confidence with each other.
