Kate Middleton and William fascinated by their very first portrait: the “incredible” work makes a strong impression

The day before, the most glamorous couple of the British royal family was traveling to Waterloo station to celebrate Windrush Day. In a blazer and pants set in immaculate white, signed Alexander McQueen, the Duchess of Cambridge was already a sensation. This time, Kate Middleton and Prince William had the right to their first official portrait, unveiled this Thursday, June 23, 2022 to mark the couple’s visit to Cambridge County to celebrate. During this first stop of the day, the Duchess wore a lovely blue LK Bennett patterned dress, recycled for the occasion. The 40-something couple visited the Fitzwilliam Museum at the University of Cambridge, where they discovered the portrait, revealed to the public for the first time.

We see Kate in an emerald dress costing more than 1,800 euros, from the brand The Vampire’s Wife, which she wore for the first time during a historic three-day visit to Dublin in March 2020. At the feet of the duchess, Manolo Blahnik green satin pumps at more than 1000 euros. The mother of George, Charlotte and Louis puts her arm around her husband William, dressed in a suit and a blue tie. This work painted by the British Jamie Coreth was commissioned in 2021 by the Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait fund. The Cambridge couple was subsequently able to meet many craftsmen who participated in this project.

Prince William fell asleep in class

Prince William was full of praise for said painting, confiding in the painter that it was “unbelievable“. If he was able to appreciate the work, the Duke of Cambridge nevertheless admitted that he was not fond of the history of art during his university studies. The son of Charles and Diana has indeed admitted to falling asleep during classes. “We did a lot of Renaissance, which was amazing. But once we got into modern art, I started to get a little sleepyt,” he said. Artist Jamie Coreth said he was honored to have been “chosen to paint this pictureThe painting will also be loaned to the National Portrait Gallery for a short period in 2023 to mark the reopening of the gallery.
