The stunning image has been shared as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Cambridgeshire. The future king and queen consort embrace in artist Jamie Coreth’s portrait.
Kate looks dapper in a long dark green dress and heels in a similar shade, while William looks dapper in a suit with a blue tie.
The duchess’s brown hair is loose around her shoulders and accessorized with dangling earrings, a brooch and a bracelet.
William has one hand in his pocket as he and Kate look to their right as they pose for the painting.
The royal couple saw the portrait this morning at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.
It has been released just days after William, who is second in line to the throne, turned 40.
In the next decade, the future king’s role will become more prominent as he supports the monarchy.
Members of the public will be able to view the portrait, which was commissioned in 2021 as a gift to Cambridgeshire, at the Fitzwilliam Museum for three years.
It will then be displayed in other community spaces and galleries throughout the county.

“As this is the first portrait to show them together, and specifically during their time as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, I wanted the image to evoke a feeling of balance between their public and private lives.
“The piece was commissioned as a gift to the people of Cambridgeshire and I hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.”
The artist was inspired by the hues, colors and architecture of many of the historic stone buildings that are synonymous with Cambridge.
William met Kate at the University of St Andrews when they were both students.
The couple married in a spectacular ceremony in 2011 after dating for more than eight years.
He was named the Duke of Cambridge by his grandmother, the Queen, on the morning of his wedding.
The couple welcomed their first child, Prince George, also the future king, in 2013, followed by Princess Charlotte in 2015 and Prince Louis in 2018.
