LONDON (AP) — The Duchess of Cambridge seems to like her first official portrait, which is lucky for the artist. Many critics don’t.
Paul Emsley’s portrait of the former Kate Middleton shows the 31-year-old royal against a dark background, her lips pursed into a wry smile, with an ethereal light against her face and hair. Her pale complexion brings out the fine lines under the eyes, and the light adds a hint of silver to her rich brown hair.
Shortly after the portrait was unveiled Friday at the National Portrait Gallery in London, critics began grousing.
“It’s a great, great opportunity missed,” British Art Journal editor Robin Simon said. “The best thing you can say about it is that she doesn’t actually look like that.” – Read more
Video – Mixed reviews for Kate’s portrait
Here are a few Kate Middleton topless photos while she was sunbathing on vacation in private…or so she thought. The photos are horrible quality so you can’t really tell for sure if it’s her. Plus, I don’t know how credible the source is. The magazine is a British tabloid called Closer. These photos were released from their France edition, but the magazine claims:
British Closer magazine vows it would “never publish topless images” of a member of the Royal family after it’s French namesake printed topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge. – read more
Are they real? You be the judge.
Update: I guess they must be real because the British royal family is suing.
Britain’s royal family says it is suing the French magazine that published topless photos of Kate Middleton sunbathing.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have begun “legal proceedings for breach of privacy” against the magazine’s publishers, the St. James Palace said in a statement Friday, after calling the publication of the photos “a grotesque and totally unjustifiable” invasion of the young couple’s privacy. – read more
If you have absolutely no desire to watch the 2012 Olympic games in London, maybe Kate Middleton‘s royal hot ass will convince you. The only reasons I’ll be watching are for the hot dancing track stars, sweet flexible gymnasts and sweaty beach volleyball booty. And maybe an Olympic basketball game or two. By the way, they are no Dream Team (for the sports fans).

It’s been nearly seven months since they walked down the aisle to the delight of millions. But now, Prince William and Kate Middleton have an even bigger reason to celebrate. In Touch has learned that Kate is around six weeks pregnant with their first child — and she and William couldn’t be more relieved. “Since before they even got married, it’s been made clear to William and Kate that having children should be their number-one priority,” a royal source reveals, adding that Queen Elizabeth II, in particular, has been dropping so many hints about wanting a great-grandchild — and an heir to the throne — that Kate feared she wouldn’t be able to face her without baby news. – read more
