Duchess of Cambridge portrait unveiled

Paul Emsley's portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge
The first official portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge is out, but critics panned it, calling it "rotten" and "nothing like Kate in real life," reports The Daily Mail. However, The Telegraph praised the artist, Paul Emsley (himself controversial for realistic and photographic style) for painting the Duchess in "a picture of maturity."


The Duchess is seen smiling (Mail wrote she was rather grimacing), her face was "framed by her hair."

The Duchess was elated to have seen the portrait, calling it "amazing" and "brilliant." Prince William couldn't be happier, too. "It's beautiful, it's absolutely beautiful," he said.
