The duke and duchess, both 40, met Coreth as they viewed the painting of themselves while in Cambridgeshire for a series of engagements.

William said, after looking at the painting: “It’s quite big.” He told Coreth it was “amazing”.

The portrait was commissioned last year by the Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait Fund, held by the Cambridge Community Foundation, as a gift to Cambridgeshire.

With this brief in mind, the artist worked to incorporate the city of Cambridge into the portrait by painting the background with the tones and colours of many of the historical stone buildings that are synonymous with the city.

The portrait also includes the use of a hexagonal architectural motif which can be seen on buildings across Cambridge.

Members of the public will be able to view the portrait at the University of Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum for an initial period of three years, after which the artwork will be exhibited in other community spaces and galleries around Cambridgeshire.

National Portrait Gallery will loan the painting for a short time in 2023 to mark the Gallery’s reopening.

He said: “It has been the most extraordinary privilege of my life to be chosen to paint this picture. I wanted to show Their Royal Highnesses in a manner where they appeared both relaxed and approachable, as well as elegant and dignified.

“It is the first portrait to depict them together, during their time as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I wanted the image to evoke a feeling of balance between their public and private lives.

“The people of Cambridgeshire commisioned the gift. And I hope they will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed creating it.”
