Prince William and Catherine give royal seal of approval for first joint portrat

Royal portraits can be something of a hit and miss affair.

But the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave their personal seal of approval to their first official joint portrait on a visit to, appropriately, Cambridge.

And tying neatly into the theme, Kate, 40, sports a very special loan from the Queen in the portrait – the Duchess of Cambridge pearl pendant brooch.

The startlingly realistic painting was commissioned last year as a gift for the people of Cambridgeshire and shows the pair standing side-by-side.

Kate is wearing an AUD$2830 emerald green dress by The Vampire’s Wife which she first wore during a visit to Dublin in 2020.
