Prince William and Duchess Kate are now immortalized with a brush and a canvas.

The royal couple unveiled their first official portrait together Thursday, sharing photos of a framed painting of the two standing side by side with knowing smirks. British artist Jamie Coreth painted the Duke of Cambridge wearing a black suit with a teal tie and the duchess wearing an emerald green silk gown from The Vampire’s Wife, detailing the texture and pattern with each stroke.

“Delighted to see this new portrait unveiled at the itfitzmuseum_uk in Cambridge today,” the couple wrote on their shared Instagram account with a photo of museum patrons viewing the new artwork.

While the two have official individual portraits that already exist, the newly released one counts as their first portrait together.

Coreth considered the commission piece to be “the most extraordinary privilege” of his life.

Award-winning portrait artist, Jamie Coreth poses in front of his painting of Britain's Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge as it is revealed to the public for the first time.

“I wanted to show their Royal Highnesses in a manner where they appeared both relaxed and approachable, as well as elegant and dignified,” Coreth said in a statement. “As it is the first portrait to depict them together, and specifically 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 portrait will be on display at the University of Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum for three years and will later travel to other galleries within Cambridgeshire. In 2023 the piece of art will briefly spend time in the National Portrait Gallery in London to mark the institution’s reopening.

Some of the earlier portraits of Duchess Kate and Prince William were panned by art critics in 2014. One of William’s earliest portraits was unveiled in 2010 featuring the young royal alongside his brother Prince Harry created by artist Nicky Philipps. The painting hangs in London’s National Portrait Gallery.

The party at the end of the first day of Prince William and Duchess Kate's visit to Ireland was hosted by the British Ambassador to Ireland at the famous Guinness Storehouse's Gravity Bar in Dublin.  Kate wore a standout dress by The Vampire's Wife, a fitted, iridescent emerald green silk frock featuring ruffles at the hem and sleeves, while William wore a bright blue suit.

Kate previously wore the gown in March 2020 on a trip with William to Ireland, just before the start of the pandemic. She donned the dress for a party, hosted by the British Ambassador to Ireland, at the end of the first day of their three-day trip.
