Kate Middleton's official portrait, unveiled this year, was weird enough. This one?
Much less official. Totally unauthorized. Even weirder. Equally discussion-worthy.
From the warped imagination of 25-year-old portrait artist Nick Lord comes this, a portrait in which a heavily pregnant Duchess of Cambridge wears lingerie on a bed.
Not exactly the Kate Middleton bikini photos from her first trimester, is it?
Hot? Magical? Disturbing? A little from columns A, B and C? Hard to say.
Amazingly, Lord just won the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year competition last night for his portrait of Iraq war veteran Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry.
That particular painting will be displayed in the National Portrait Gallery.
Yes ... the man who painted the above image of Kate Middleton also has a painting in the National Portrait Gallery. This world just got a little happier to us.
His next subject? Hilary Mantel, the author of Wolf Hall. We have got to think she's penning historical fiction in her trashiest lingerie right now in preparation.
