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.

Kate and William attended a private viewing and met the artist.
