The Duchess of Cambridge and her husband, Prince William, were the first to see the artwork at a private viewing at the National Portrait Gallery in London before it was publicly unveiled.
But while the royal couple was reportedly pleased with Emsley’s work, other observers have offered less than favorable reviews.
Among the criticisms are that Middleton appears to have a somewhat pained expression, and looks substantially older than her 31 years.
