14But Hey, How Awful is Kate Middleton’s New Portrait?

Awful, right? Pretty damn terrible. Kate Middleton is undeniably a beautiful woman, but this painting (it is a painting, right?) makes her look old, wrinkly, and frankly, dirty. Other words I’ve seen used on the Internets? “Lifeless.” “Ghastly.” “Gloomy.” So needless to say, I’m not the only one who pretty much thinks it’s the most awful thing I’ve seen this year. Others, however, have described the portrait as “just amazing” (Prince William said that) and “absolutely beautiful.” Uh, also Prince William.

Survey says? Put the paintbrush down, yo.

    omg she looks like an elderly man

  2. Yo. That killed me :D

    The portrait is technically well painted but the artist chose the wrong expression. This awkward half smile! It’s like, uh, I’m pooping or something. It’s practically a frown masked as a smile. I smile like that when I dislike the person I’m smiling at but can’t find a polite way to let them know.

    What’s worse though is the nose. The nose is not right at all.

      lol so true about the half-smile, pooping effect.

      Also, poor Prince William. He HAS to like the portrait, now doesn’t he?

    Yep, old man face…actually, drunk old man face.

    It’s a fine painting…of a 50-year-old woman, that is.

    I think it’s fairly accurate, excluding that nose. It just might’ve been nicer with a bit of brightness to her eyes. The life and sparkle she usually has is missing.

    She looks similar to John Boehner

    Seems like it is technically well done, and looks like Kate Middleton from photos made public, however, he seems to have made her nose too broad. It is a lovely, otherwise.

    It is not a true picture of Kate. She is a beautiful lady. She is vivacious. I hope this portrait is not put on display. Please have a another one done.

  9. It’s what she looks like after a hard night with Harry — oh wait, William — at the local…

  10. Sam says:

    That LOOKS like her. You guys realize that, right? She really doesn’t look young in real life either.

  11. Jacq says:

    When your were describing her, you forgot “Constipated”

    OMG i love you people – i scrolled to it and was baffled for like a hot second and guttural lol then your comments.
    thank you for posting the pic.
    fucking hilarious – and she was quoted as saying it was “brilliant”
    but she does look older than she is in real life too so kudos to the painter i guess
    fucking octogenarian
