Kate Middleton and Prince William’s First Joint Portrait Unveiled—and Kate Looks Stunning in Her Emerald Gown
Per the Daily Mail, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the museum to view the artwork during a trip to Cambridgeshire, a county which includes the City of Cambridge. The county and city hold great significance to the couple—their royal Cambridge titles were given to them by Queen Elizabeth herself on their wedding day.
In the portrait, Middleton looked absolutely stunning in an emerald green gown designed by The Vampire’s Wife. Royal aficionados may recall she wore the dress during the couple’s visit to Dublin in March 2020. The duchess paired the look with matching satin pumps crafted by Manolo Blahnik. In contrast, William donned a black suit with a navy blue tie and a white button-down shirt.
The portrait unveiling was documented on the royal couple’s joint Instagram account. While sharing a snapshot of the painting, the caption read, “Delighted to see this new portrait unveiled at the @fitzmuseum_uk in Cambridge today!” They also credited the painter, Jamie Coreth.
The piece was commissioned last year by the Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait Fund, which is held by the Cambridge Community Foundation. As it turns out, the painting was given as a gift to Cambridgeshire. During the event, the couple also met the artist and Lady Sibyl Marshall, who had the original idea for the portrait.
Quite a beautiful portrait, indeed.
