THE Duchess of Cambridge says her first official portrait is “amazing”. The Mona KAte is the work of Paul Emsley. He was told by Kate:

“It’s just amazing, I thought it was brilliant.”

Wills added:

The Duke added: “It’s beautiful, it’s absolutely beautiful.”

Says the artist:

“In the sessions of photography from which I worked, I was always aware of the fact that we would use the hair very much as a kind of frame for the face, and not too much in the way of jewellery, other than the earring, to try to create something of her natural warmth, her natural serenity. The fact she is a beautiful woman is for an artist difficult. In the end I think what I tried to do really was to convey something about her warmth and her smile. Any artist will tell you doing a smiling portrait is not at all easy so that was difficult. You always see the (problems), you’re always unhappy with what you do … but it has seemed today that everyone likes it.
