A new portrait – and the first ever – of Prince William and Duchess Kate was unveiled on Thursday at the Fitzwilliam Museum at the University of Cambridge. The painting shows the royal couple standing side by side, both looking out of the picture to the right with a hint of a smile, the Duchess has her arm around William’s waist.

Kate is pictured wearing an emerald Susie Cave dress that has a metallic shimmer. She wore the dress on a visit to Dublin in March 2020. In the picture she is now in “Hangisi” heels by Manolo Blahnik, which enjoy cult status among “Sex and the City” fans as Carrie’s wedding shoes. Her outfit is completed by loose hair and a brooch over the left breast. While Kate’s dress is far from everyday, Prince William in the picture is classic in a black suit, blue tie and white shirt.

Prince William finds the painting ‘amazing’

The painting was created by award-winning British painter Jamie Coreth, who describes being selected for the painting as “the most extraordinary privilege of my life”. The 26-year-old explains his vision according to “Sky News” stating: “I wanted to show Their Royal Highnesses in a way that they appear relaxed and approachable as well as elegant and dignified.” He seems to have achieved that. The royals couldn’t take their eyes off each other at the unveiling, with Prince William commenting, “Incredible” and the fact, “It’s quite big.”
