LONDON (CBSMiami/AP) –The first official portrait of the Kate, Duchess of Cambridge was unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery on Friday.

Paul Emsley’s portrait shows Kate, who recently turned 31, against a dark background with her lips pursed into a wry smile.

Kate and Prince William, who are expecting their first child, were on hand at the gallery for the portrait’s unveiling. Kate told Emsley it was “just amazing.” Her husband liked it too, calling it “absolutely beautiful.”

Emsley told reporters that Kate wanted the portrait to “convey her natural self as opposed to her official self.”
