Kate: "Too Beautiful" To Paint

Is Kate too perfect to paint?

Portrait artist Nicky Philipps is said to be close to completing his £25,000 portrait of Kate Middleton, a 30th birthday gift for William from Prince Charles and Kate.
Let's hope Philipps has been able to capture the Duchess in all her glory: in a 2011 interview he remarked that he'd love to paint Kate, but fretted: "Beautiful people are always more difficult. With symmetrical faces there’s nothing to hang the portrait on. It’s very unlikely that you’ll ever do them enough justice.”
Luxury problems, eh?
