    Everyone Is Pretty Horrified By The New Prince William Royal Portrait

    "I can honestly say that I've shat better portraits."

    Yesterday, this new royal portrait of Prince William was unveiled by artist Dan Llywelyn Hall.

    The painting is called 'Fatherhood' and is said to depict his role as a father to Prince George.

    But it seems the internet has quite a lot of emotions about it.

    Some had a lot to complain about.

    @DailyMailUK @MailOnline How is an awful painting (that we&#39;ve paid for &amp; will be seen by few) good value to us? (the taxpayer)

    @monique_muise @britishroyals Without any risk of hyperbole, I can honestly say that I&#39;ve shat better portraits of Prince William.

    And it seems some even feel the need to confirm who the portrait is actually of.

    Worst. Portrait. Ever. (It&#39;s Prince William by the way).

    But this was by far the best observation of them all.

    Does Prince William&#39;s new royal portrait remind you of anyone..?
