I've seen a number of candid photos of the Duchess that are much more realistic, and since see is beautiful, those are lively, robust images. An artist should be able bring forth even more of here invigorating countenance. Instead this portrait hides all that behind a somewhat cartoonish image. Sad....

The only requirement should be is the subject of the picture happy or does she like it. If she does then its fine.

This portrait issue is all very distressing and disorienting. My whole world was based on a certain image of the duchess, and now we have this. How is one to feel, what is one to believe, where is one to turn? I can think of no more pressing world issue than rectifying this situation. Please calm the ripples on my very shallow pool of intellect.

She looks like she's half in the bag - which I like.

Well, she won't have to sit for another portrait for many years. This picture makes her look a good 10-20 years older.
