Kate Middleton's Latest Portrait Is Weird - But Prince William Loves It

There's a new portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge doing the rounds and it's reportedly one of Prince William's favourites yet.

After seeing Kate Middleton's official portrait by Paul Emsley in 2012, Scottish artist Tom Sutton-Smith took it upon himself to paint his own interpretation of the royal, one that truly reflected Kate's "youthful spirit".

There's definitely more of a sparkle and the cheekbones are spot on but does it really look like Kate? We're not sure. In fact, we think it's a little bit weird.

The royal couple attended an art exhibition and were presented with the portrait by Sutton-Smith's colleague Glenys Andrews of Perthshire Open Studios.

While Sutton-Smith was MIA, Vanity Fair reports Prince William's reaction was exactly what any budding royal portraitist would wish for. Glenys Andrews revealed Wills beamed and said: "Wow, it's brilliant! That's going up in my room."

The question is which room? Though Glenys Andrews claims the duchess was "wowed by it", will she really be hanging this in their Kensington Palace apartments? Or will it take prize position in the newly refurbished Anmer Hall mansion?

We'll keep you posted. People painting portraits of you - potentially just another thing you only really understand if you're a bonafide royal...
