AceShowbiz - A new portrait of Kate Middleton received mixed responses from the public. After it was revealed on Wednesday, May 22, the portrait, which was shared on the July 2024 cover of Tatler magazine, was inspired by Kate's look at the 2022 state banquet.

Tatler commissioned British-Zambian artist Hannah Uzor for the portrait, which was part portraits series of Britain's royal family members. It featured Kate donning a white floor-length gown with crystal-covered shoulders and billowing sleeves to the event.

The Princess of Wales was also seen rocking the Lover's Knot tiara, Princess Diana's South Sea pearl-and-diamond drop earrings and Queen Elizabeth's pearl bracelet. She was also depicted wearing a crossbody blue sash and yellow pin in the portrait.

In a video posted to Tatler's Instagram, Uzor said, "I spent a lot of time looking at her, 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 hospice." The artist added, "It's been really interesting for me to get a sense of who she is."

The outlet called the portrait "strength, dignity and courage," but fans were not impressed. "Disappointing portrait … our POW is far more beautiful ..," one user wrote. Similarly, one other said, "A very poor portrait which totally fails to represent the beauty and elegance of the Princess of Wales."

A third added, "What a horrible portrait for a beautiful Woman." Others dubbed the image "laughable," while some were asking if the outlet was "joking." One commented, "This does not look like the PoW at all. I thought it was a joke at first." Another asked, "This isn't great is it? Is this a spoof?"

However, some people loved the portrait. "This is stunning. These comments are wild. The energy captured is exquisite," one person commented. "So Beautiful," someone else added.
