Did William and Kate pay for it to be done? I thought I'd read somewhere the National Portrait Gallery wanted an Official Portrait of their new Royal Patron and what better reason for Kate to sit for her first Official Portrait. I can't remember where I read that, but I could swear I did see that somewhere. While it's not knock it out of the park incredable, you do know who it is. It's just beyond a shame the artist aged her and also changed her eye colour. Considering Portrait are considered to be an accurate portrayal of a person.....I give it a C- Not a great painting of HRH, but not out and out fail either IMO.
