Prince William and Kate Middleton Proudly Share Prince George’s Christmas Art

If this whole thing of waiting to become king isn’t working out for Prince George, he might want to consider a career in art.

Prince William and Kate Middleton proudly shared a watercolor made by the 9-year-old royal via Kensington Palace’s official Twitter account on Christmas Day.

The impressive portrait was that of a reindeer in the snow joined by two robins.

“Merry Christmas! 🎨 by George,” read the caption.

Of course, George’s grandfather, King Charles III was a talented amateur painter and was well known for his watercolours.

The King often painted royal residences such as his country house Highgrove and Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

In October, a print of a Balmoral painting by Charles sold at auction for an impressive $6,500, despite being worth around $675.

The painting, accompanied by a certificate, is signed in pencil by Charles and dated 2001.

Earlier this year, 79 of King Charles’ watercolors went on display at the Garrison Chapel in London, marking the first full exhibition of his works. It included outdoor scenes created in Scotland, France and Africa.

“Her Majesty held Christmas close to her heart, as a time that brought people together and reminded us of the importance of faith, friendship and family, and to show empathy and compassion” , Middleton explained in a teaser video before the service.
