Kate Middleton re-wears her bright green dress in the first official joint photo with William

Kate Middleton and Prince William topped their main list this week as they saw their first-ever official joint photo.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who have been married for 11 years and together for two decades, visited Cambridgeshire on Thursday, where we were able to see the painting.

The portrait, painted by Jamie Koreith and commissioned by the Cambridgeshire Royal Picture Trust, is currently in the Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge University. Koreith said on his Instagram account that revealing the photo was a “surreal and extraordinary experience”.

“It was the most extraordinary privilege of my life to choose to paint this picture,” he added.

The painting was painted by award-winning portrait artist Jimmy Correth, in 2021 by the Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait Trust, maintained by the Cambridge Community Foundation, as a gift to Cambridgeshire.

In the painting, the Duke of Cambridge is shown in a light blue tie suit, while the Duchess wears a dress from the British label The Vampire’s Wife.

Dubbed ‘The Falconetti’, the metallic chiffon dress in shimmering emerald silk retails for $1,989. Kate previously wore the dress in March of 2020, and it made headlines for its resemblance to one of Princess Beatrice’s favorite dresses, also called “The Veneration Dress” from the label.

Cambridge published a photo of onlookers viewing the photo.

“Excited to see this new image unveiled at fitzmuseum_uk in Cambridge today!” They wrote.

Koreith, in a joint statement with HuffPost, spoke about how he sought to portray the royal couple in their first official photo.

“I wanted to show their royal highnesses in a way that would show relaxation and friendliness, as well as elegance and reverence,” he said.

The artist added: “Because it is the first painting to depict them together, and specifically during their time as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, I wanted the picture to evoke a sense 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 making it.”
