Kate Middleton’s Much-Despised Official Portrait Has Arrived

Not very well-received.

Kate’s first official portrait, painted by artist Paul Emsley, was unveiled in London’s National Portrait Gallery on Friday.

Not everyone loves it: The Daily Mail’s art critic called it “a rotten portrait” and others are pointing out inaccurate and unflattering wrinkles and lines that make Kate look older than she is.
