The First Official Joint Portrait of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

This exhibition has closed.

The first official joint portrait of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (now the Prince and Princess of Wales) will be on display in the Moller Gallery at the National Horseracing Museum from 10th January until 2nd April 2023.

This life-sized painting, by award-winning British artist Jamie Coreth, was commissioned in 2021 by the Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait Fund, held by the Cambridge Community Foundation, as a gift to the county. The painting incorporates architectural features seen across the city of Cambridge, such as the hexagonal pillars in the background, and the tones and colours of the many historical stone buildings that define the city.

We are proud to have this painting at the National Horseracing Museum on loan from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, where it was unveiled in 2022 as the first official painting of the Royal couple. The painting will continue to be toured after April 2023.

A graduate of the Florence Academy of Art, Jamie Coreth established his artistic career in London in 2015. In June 2016 his portrait, Dad Sculpting Me, was awarded the Young Artist Award at the BP Portrait Exhibition, a showcase held annually by the National Portrait Gallery. Since then, Coreth’s works have been accepted into the BP Portrait Exhibition on two further occasions. In 2020, Portrait of Fatima was shortlisted for the BP Portrait Award and later won the Visitors’ Choice with over 1,000 votes.
