Kate Middleton drew portraits of Princess Charlotte and Prince George this summer

According to the Daily Mail, the Duchess, 33, spent the summer at her and her husband’s idyllic country estate Anmer Hall, which was a present for their wedding from the Queen, drawing portraits of her children, Princess Charlotte, 4 months, and Prince George, 2.

The publication also wrote that Duchess Kate has shown the sketches to several friends, including a few with connections to the art world.

Apparently, her work prompted one of her friends to say, jokingly, that she should exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery. The British royal mother-of-two is the patron of this art gallery, where a collection of portraits of historically important British people are present.

The National Portrait Gallery opened in 1856 and it was the first portrait gallery in the world.

Kate showed her artistic side when she took the first official portraits of her daughter and son in June.

HRH Duchess of Cambridge

It’s not a surprise that the Duchess of Cambridge is so into photography and drawing, as she studied art history in Scotland at St Andrews University.
