We don't know where the Duchess of Cambridge has been hiding her artistic talent, but thanks to Pippa Middleton's recent wedding, they are finally out in the open. According to reports, the Duchess of Cambridge drew a sketch of St Marks's church in Englefield where the couple married. This drawing was featured on their wedding program.


The artwork was visible on the front of the booklet which guests including Prince Harry, Prince William, and Spencer Matthews, were pictured carrying as they left the church following the ceremony.

It's also being claimed that Reverend Nick Wynne-Jones, who officiated the nuptials, described Kate's drawing as a "lovely piece", says The Sun, and that brother-in-law James even mentioned it in his speech.

At the lavish reception at the Middleton's home, James is believed to have said in front of the estimated 300 guests: "And to Pippa's sister Kate, such ability‚Äďa beautiful drawing of St Mark's church in the order of service."


Referring to her reading, he added: "A flawless reading and a kind loan of two adorable little ones."

Duchess Kate has revealed her photography skills with her recent portraits of her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

She also studied Art History at St Andrews University, and her interest in the subject has lead to patronages of London's National Portrait Gallery and the charity The Art Room.


Speaking about her roles previously (via The Daily Mail), she said: "I am a firm believer in the power of art to make a difference."

Duchess Kate was also on mom duty at sister Pippa's wedding over the weekend, as she tried to control Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and the gaggle of fellow page boys and bridesmaids.

It wasn't always easy, mind you...
