Kate Middleton's 1st official portrait. Like or Dislike?

Posted by   + Show Post

Face of royalty: The picture may well prove divisive, since it shows an unsmiling Kate with creases and shadows under her eyes - looking older than her years

Sometimes I look at her likeness and it looks good.  Sometimes I look at her likeness and it looks old.

 She looks tired. Maybe this was taken when she was throwing up so much?

I think they aged her in this portrait, but she is still beautiful.

I agree.  The eyes up and her hair look young, the bottom of the eyes down looks old.  And the smile looks tight, but when she smiles you can see she has a big beautiful smile.

Overall, I like it.  It isn't my favorite picture of her, but I think it does it's job for official purposes.  You have to keep in mind, these portraits are more about portraying a royal image than reality.  (Like when Cleopatra put herself on coins: Coins in Egypt showed her looking more Egyptian and young, coins for trading with Greece and the Romans had her looking older and Greek.  You can tell they are both her, but she's choosing to display an image to the world to make a statement to other cultures.)  I hope in the future ones they show her personality more.  I feel like they were trying to "imprint" regality and wisdom on her, kwim?

Not at all flattering. Hope she gets another one done that doesn't age her so much.

Did she pose while hospitalized for morning sickness? It's dreadful.
