The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton’s first official Royal portrait has been unveiled. And many people are not happy with the final result.

The first official portrait was unveiled this morning to a mixed reaction. The picture by Paul Emsley, was unveiled at London’s National Portrait Gallery. The artist, who is famous for his extraordinarily realistic, almost ‘photographic’ style was commissioned by the gallery after Kate chose him from a shortlist, according to the Dailymail.

The portrait is a head and shoulders view of the Duchess with a very serious expression on her face.

The Duchess and Prince William viewed the portrait ahead of the public and were said to be very happy with it.

The portrait of Kate, who looks stunning in most of the photos we have seen of her, is already causing controversy with a number of people disliking it.  While we are not artists, the portrait definitely looks like an aged version of the Duchess. She doesn’t look the beautiful youthful woman who recently celebrated her 31st birthday.

Check out the portrait on page 2 and let us know what you think.

    Do we See Kate as Smug?! Lots of artists subconsciously depict their own personalities in their work. Remember Picasso’s portrait of Gertrude Stein? Isn’t that more Picasso’s face in the result?!
