Everyone is saying the same thing about newly released Kate Middleton portrait

Everyone is saying the same thing about the latest portrait of Kate Middleton.

Tatler Magazine unveiled its May front cover which shows a painting of the Princess of Wales on Wednesday – which has left fans baffled.

The artwork was created by British-Zambian artist Hannah Uzor – following covers of King Charles to mark his Coronation and the late Queen Elizabeth for her Platinum Jubilee.

In the portrait, Kate’s outfit is a floor-length white dress with a cape based on the Jenny Packham dress she wore to a state banquet at Buckingham Palace in 2023.

While the Princess can be recognised by her iconic outfit, many fans have expressed that the portrait has “no resemblance” to her.

The fans have taken to the comments to convey how baffled they are about the artwork with one commenting: “This is not HRH The Princess of Wales. God knows who it is, but it is not HRH.”

Another said: “This is not HRH The Princess of Wales. God knows who it is, but it is not HRH.”

While several others teased that the portrait looks more like Strictly head judge Shirly Ballas.

A fourth commented: “This is not resembling her at all.”

Speaking about the portrait, artist Hannah Uzor told Tatler: “When you can’t meet the sitter in person, you have to look at everything you can find and piece together the subtle human moments revealed in different photographs: do they have a particular way of standing or holding their head or hands? Do they have a recurrent gesture?”

The artist added that Kate revealing her cancer diagnosis impacted how she decided to portray her in the painting.

She admitted: “Portraits are made up of layers of a personality, constructed from everything I can find about them.”

In March, the Princess of Wales announced that she is undergoing treatment for cancer, which was discovered after she underwent abdominal surgery in January.

On March 22, the mother-of-three released an emotional video revealing her cancer diagnosis.

The 42-year-old said: “In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful. However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present.”

“My medical team, therefore, advised that I should undergo a course of preventive chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.”

“This of course came as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family. As you can imagine, this has taken time.”

“It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment. But, most importantly, it has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be ok.”

“As I have said to them; I am well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal; in my mind, body and spirit. Having William by my side is a great source of comfort and reassurance too.”

“As is the love, support and kindness that has been shown by so many of you. It means so much to us both.”

“We hope that you will understand that, as a family, we now need some time, space and privacy while I complete my treatment.

“My work has always brought me a deep sense of joy and I look forward to being back when I am able, but for now I must focus on making a full recovery.”
