Thanks for those articles guys. Fun and interesting to read. Catherine has definitely come a long way. I found it interesting that she got a 2.1 in history of art class. I suppose maybe its different in the U.K. but graduating in the U.S. with a 2.1 means you are a C average student. But anyway, happy happy birthday to the Duchess of Cambridge! Wishing you the best year and many more to come.

That's not her GPA- it's the type of degree she has :)

Oh! I knew it had to be something different. Thank you for the clarification. I learned something new today. :)

An article from 'The Telegraph', talking about Catherine's birthday, and the full year ahead.

Were there any official birthday portraits published to mark Catherine's birthday? Also, does anyone know who is being tasked to paint her first official portrait which I guess most be coming soon. I imagine the National Portrait Gallery are getting impatient.

No 'official' photos, I don't think we've even seen her.
Also, seeing as they aren't full time royals yet I don't see any portraits of Catherine on her own, nor with William for a while. The last portrait (for me that's a painted picture rather than a photograph) of William was one done with his brother 2 years ago by Nicky Phillips. Before that, there hadn't been a portrait of William done.

I found this a couple of days ago while surfing:

Quote:
The commissioning of the Duchess of Cambridge's first official portrait is currently "under way through the National Portrait Gallery," a Clarence House spokesman told ARTINFO UK yesterday.

Who Will Paint Kate Middleton's First Royal Portrait? ARTINFO Offers Five Suggestions | Artinfo

It might best be taken with a grain of salt, since it's from an unnamed "spokesman" ... but it could be true.

I would love to see Jonathan Yeo paint Kate. He's already painted:

Prince Philip

Viscount Linley

I think they'll probably go for a young female artist though.

Thanks for sharing the pictures,they are very interesting and different than the standard royal portrays IMO.
But why having to chose,maybe Jonathan Yeo could make one portrait and next year another artists makes a different portrait of the Duchess?I always like when a painter has his/her own style and technique and having several portrays could show different aspects of the Duchess personality and show her in various activities.

Thanks Cinrit I think there's a good chance we might see a portrait soon particularly as the Duchess has started to accept patronages ( I'm thinking pics in the headquarters type of thing), but also if you are going to record her at key points in her life for posterity, her 30th year and first full year of Royal engagements seems right.

Liz Jones from DM must be one of the most pathetic women on this planet.
Help, I'm turning into Kate Middleton! LIZ JONES falls victim to the Duchess of Cambridge effect | Mail Online

A while ago she underwent plastic surgery because she couldnt face herself in the mirror any longer (looking too old), but that didnt cure the obvious problem in her head.

What would DM journalists write about if they couldn't write about themselves?

What's with female DM journalists lately?
Liz Jones is not turning into Kate; she is copying her outfits - and not very well too.
