The stunning image has been shared as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Cambridgeshire. The future King and Queen Consort have one arm around the other in the portrait of artist Jamie Coreth.
Kate looks elegant in a long dark green dress and heels in a similar shade, while William is smart in a suit with a blue tie.
The Duchess’s brunette hair is loose around her shoulders and she features hanging earrings, a brooch and a bracelet.
William has a hand in his pocket while he and Kate look to the right of them as they pose for the painting.
The royal couple saw the portrait this morning at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.
It has been released a few days after William, who is second in line to the throne, reached his milestone’s 40th birthday.
In the coming decade, the role of the future king will become more prominent as he supports the monarchy.
Members of the public will be able to see the portrait, which was commissioned in 2021 as a gift to Cambridgeshire, at the Fitzwilliam Museum for three years.
It will then be exhibited in other common areas and galleries around the county.
“As this is the first portrait depicting them together, and specifically during their time as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, I wanted the image to evoke a sense of balance between their public and private lives.
“The bike was ordered as a gift for the people of Cambridgeshire and I hope they will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed creating it.”
The artist was inspired by the tones, colors and architecture of many of the historic stone buildings synonymous with Cambridge.
William met Kate at the University of St. Andrews when they were both students.
The couple teamed up for a spectacular ceremony in 2011 after dating for more than eight years.
He was made Duke of Cambridge by his grandmother, the Queen, on the morning of his wedding.
The couple welcomed their first child, Prince George, also a future king, in 2013, followed by Princess Charlotte in 2015 and Prince Louis in 2018.
