One of Prince George’s paintings was proudly shared by Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Prince George, the eldest son of the Prince and Princess of Wales, is a talented painter. Prince William and Middleton proudly shared a photo of his Christmas artwork on Twitter and Instagram. The holiday painting depicted a snow-covered reindeer with birds perched on its antlers and back.
The caption read:
“Happy Christmas! [painting] by George.”
Many people were impressed by the second in line to the throne’s ability to paint. Several people couldn’t stop praising Prince George for his hidden talent.
“This is actually quite good! I’m assuming this is their Christmas card?! If so, I love, love, LOVE that they used his drawing. Makes them relatable.”
Another wrote, accompanied by a photo of Prince George holding what appears to be another piece of artwork:
“He has always been a very talented artist.”
Another royal fan opined:
“That’s fantastic… I would be your first customer if it was made into a Charity Christmas card.”
A fourth user added:
“Absolutely fabulous. Such a talented young man. Please can we have this as a Christmas card next year? I’m sure it would raise a lot for good causes. Merry Christmas to you and all your families.”
A fifth user wrote:
“Merry Christmas!! Fantastic painting, little man!! Perhaps George could start his philanthropy early and turn this into a Christmas card sold in the Palace shops with profits going to a children’s charity?? It’s that good!!”
Several members of the royal family, including the late Prince Philip and King Charles III, are talented painters. The British monarch is well-known for his watercolors, which frequently depict royal residences such as Balmoral Castle in Scotland and Highgrove in Gloucestershire, England.
King Charles’ painting of Balmoral Castle was included in Bonhams’ “The Scottish Home” auction in October. The print was worth $675 and sold for $6,500. It was sold with a certificate signed by King Charles in pencil in the year 2001.
According to CNN, Hamish Wilson, senior valuer at Bonhams, stated:
“In my time as an auctioneer, I have never seen so many commission bids lodged prior to an auction. I think that speaks for itself.”
“I don’t think I have ever seen as many pre-sale bids, so I’m afraid there’s going to be a lot of people here very disappointed when they don’t buy this.”
Earlier this year, 79 of King Charles’ watercolor paintings were displayed at The Garrison Chapel in London, marking the first full exhibition of his work. The collection included outdoor scenes created in Scotland, France, Africa, and other locations. The king shared in the exhibit’s display panel that he started painting after finding photography “less than satisfying,” People reported.
He said, according to The Scotsman:
“Quite simply, I experienced an overwhelming urge to express what I saw through the medium of watercolor and to convey that almost ‘inner’ sense of texture, which is impossible to achieve via photography.”
