The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Fitzwilliam Museum today to see their first official joint portrait - and our photographer was there to capture their reaction.
William and Kate were greeted by the Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Julie Spence, on what is Cambridgeshire County Day - a celebration day for the county to coincide with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee that includes a major event at Newmarket Racecourse, with 6,000 people.
Inside the University of Cambridge museum, the royal couple were taken to the portrait, which was painted by award-winning British artist Jamie Coreth, and marks the 10th anniversary of the couple receiving their royal titles.
They also met Lady Sibyl Marshall - the wife of the late Sir Michael Marshall, who originally proposed the idea of the portrait.
The piece was commissioned in 2021 by the Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait Fund, which is held by the Cambridge Community Foundation, as a gift to Cambridgeshire.
It must have been a nervous moment for the artist, a graduate of the Florence Academy of Art.
He painted the background with the tones and colours of many of the city’s historical stone buildings. The portrait also shows the hexagonal architectural motif that can be seen on buildings across Cambridge.
Kate seemed to enjoy the occasion.
And William, who has just turned 40, told the artist: “It's amazing.”
Delighted to see this new portrait unveiled at the @FitzMuseum_UK in Cambridge today!
