Photographer Chris Jackson tells PEOPLE of this candid moment after Prince William gave his speech, "These kind events are always quite nerve-wracking, and there was a sense of relief afterwards.

It was great to see how much pride she has for her husband and what he's achieved and is achieving – because we still have eight more years to go."

Jackson adds, "It's nice to document these behind the scenes as you get this genuine emotion. They are genuine moments, and she's clearly proud of him and it's great to capture the reality of their relationship."
