Mona Kate royal portrait raises eyebrows



Having painted  the first official portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge, artist Paul Emsley said his brief was to express her "natural self rather than her official self".

The portrait seems to be a modern version of the famous Mona Lisa one, and perhaps will go down in history as the Mona Kate portrait:

Mona Kate


I wonder what intrigued her so much that she smiled that way? The prospect of  being a mother? The wonder of all those palaces and trinkets that Britain's royal family enjoy?

Or did the artist do what Karsh did when he reduced Winston Churchill to a glowering mood by snatching his cigar away before clicking the camera?

I  guess we will never know.
