Prince William's Official Portrait Hasn't Gone Down Well

If you haven't yet seen the new official portrait of Prince William you need to, because it's already had mixed reviews. And by mixed we mean really negative.

The oil-on-canvas portrait by artist Dan Llywelyn Hall titled 'Fatherhood' was unveiled during a reception at Gwydyr House in London yesterday and reveals the Duke of Cambridge wearing a poppy, to mark the 100th anniversary of World War One.

It's not his best look yet, and we can't help be notice that the prince looks a little flushed...

Just How Bad Is Prince William's New Royal Portrait? Pretty Bad

Prince William became a father to Prince George on 22 July last year so the title for the portrait is pretty apt. "Fatherhood is a portrait about a universal theme: the concerns, hopes and aspirations of a family man" Hall said.

Hall was also the youngest artist to paint HM the Queen, although that portrait received a mixed reaction. This latest piece will be sold in October in aid of The Victoria Cross Trust and War Memorials Trust.

The Express reports David Lee, the former editor of Art Review, said: "The one of the Queen was really, really bad. Everything about it. This one of Prince William is pretty awful. It is not a very good likeness and looked badly drawn."

So the first official portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge by Paul Emsley (unveiled last year) and now this one of Prince Wills have been hugely criticised. Awkward.
