‘Dreadful’ new Kate Middleton portrait outrages the public: ‘It’s like high school art class’

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Fresh on the heels of King Charles III getting a controversial new painting, now, his daughter-in-law Kate Middleton has a new portrait that’s ruffling feathers and angering the public.

Painted by artist Hannah Uzor, the Princess of Wales’ new look wasn’t an official portrait.

The July issue of Tatler magazine revealed it.

The portrait shows Middleton, 42, in a white gown with a blue sash and a tiara.

The artist told the outlet that she “spent a lot of time looking at [Catherine], looking at her pictures, watching videos of her, seeing her with her family, seeing her in diplomatic visits, seeing her when she’s rowing or visiting children in a hospice.”

Royal watchers were left aghast, however, commenting that it does not resemble the princess.

“This is dreadful – somehow, I’m not sure the artist is a fan of the Princess – it looks like a bad GCSE project!” one remarked, while another said, “Is this a joke?”

“Doesn’t look like Catherine at all. Of she wasn’t wearing that dress I’d have no clue as to who it’s meant to be,” another slammed it.

“Where are they getting these artists/painters from? It’s like high school art class level at best,” another complained, comparing it to the recent portrait of Charles.

On May 14, Charles unveiled a new portrait that showed the monarch against a red background.

Royal watchers were not impressed, commenting, “Does the first painting represent all the blood on his hands?” and “100% thought this was satire.”

Another spectator mused about the king’s painting, “I would have loved this if it was any other color than red. He really captured the essence of him in the face, but the harshness of the red doesn’t match the softness of his expression.”

Most seemed to unanimously agree that new Middleton portrait doesn’t resemble the princess.

Referring to Middleton being out of the public eye since January, before she announced her cancer diagnosis, another said, “Kate Middleton (aka current Princess of Wales) has been out of sight since Christmas last year. The artist, like many people, has only a vague recollection of what she looks like?”

Another keyboard art critic deemed the portrait, “hilariously terrible” while someone else called it “absolutely horrible.”
