The Duchess turns 40 tomorrow, and she has sent the royal-watching world an early birthday present! How thoughtful!
From Kensington Palace: “This is one of three new portraits which will enter the permanent collection of the @NPGLondon, of which The Duchess is Patron.”
The photos were taken by Paolo Roversi at Kew Gardens in November 2021. The Duchess is wearing two gowns by Alexander McQueen. The Guardian has a piece on the photographer’s thoughts about the photo session, and it’s definitely worth a read.
Happy birthday, Duchess!
