Not sure myself - what do you think?

Kate's portrait

Well, you couldn't mistake the painting for anyone else. Just something about the mouth not quite right to me. Otherwise, the colours are superb and altogether an excellent commission.

Not sure either

I agree it's definitely recognisable as her but it is not particularly flattering. In my opinion she is a beautiful young woman and this portrait does not show her at her best

Essex Girl

Duchess of Cambridge

I think it's rather good.

JAMES

Portrait.

I had to click on the link to even figure out which one was the "Duchess of Cambridge".

They are all the same to me.

Duchess of Cambridge

Yes it's definitely her, but there is something not right about the mouth

i think she looks blooming at the viewing in that red dress - seems she is feeling better

I think while you can tell it's her, and the style of the portrait is lovely it hasn't quite captured her beauty, she always has a twinkle in her eye to me, and that doesn't seem to have come across.

Had a look
her eyes look strange and the mouth is not right

Queen of Puds

Duchess of Cambridge

Yes, it's good but only 7 out of 10. Does anyone remember the actress from 3 pints of lager & a packet of crisps please? Well, it's her, not Katherine.

Kate

Makes her 20 years older. If I was her, I'd hate it. She's much lovelier.

It definitely has to be viewed from a distance.

" Just something about the mouth not quite right to me."
The mouth shows tension, not like the duchess at all.

I've never seen her in the flesh but I thought it is a good likeness from photographs I've seen. I could definitly recognise it was her.

queen jean

portrait

I think its a very nice painting and she thinks so too ,its natural painting and that is what she wanted it to be like ,so if the couple are happy with it then its fine ,must have cost arm and a leg to have it done .
i think it captures her beauty just right .
