Artist who inspired Prince George’s Christmas painting praises his ‘eye for color’

The artist who is said to have inspired Prince George’s Christmas portrait has praised the young royal’s ‘talent’ and ‘eye for colour’.

Hannah Dale – of Wrendale Designs – said the nine-year-old royal’s festive work, which depicted a reindeer with robins perched on its body and antlers, was “lovely” and showed an impressive mastery of watercolours.

“I think the love of animals and nature is obviously something that maybe caught his eye,” she told HELLO! Magazine. “It inspires me a lot.”

Hannah, from Lincolnshire, said it was “a lovely surprise” to see the post on her social media feed, which she immediately recognized as being influenced by one of her Christmas card designs.

The artist was happy to see a young talent encouraged to pursue art, insisting that it is a “fantastic” ability to penetrate.

She also expressed her assurance that the Prince and Princess of Wales – who shared their son’s painting on their Instagram account – are proud of their child’s work.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 40, wished their followers a Merry Christmas when they posted the photo last weekend.

Royal fans were quick to praise the nine-year-old’s artistic flair, suggesting he draws his skills from his mother, who is an avid photographer.

One person said, “A budding little artist. Merry Christmas to everyone!’

Another said: “So talented for a little guy!” Looks like his mom.

Over the festive period, the young royal siblings appeared on screen with their parents at their mother’s annual singing service and stole the show.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in the front row of the crowd, joined by their parents and the King and Queen consort.

During the service, which included readings from Kristin Scott-Thomas and Prince William and performances from Craig David, Alfie Boe and Mel C, the young prince and princess stole the show.

Viewers praised the well-behaved Charlotte, who looked delighted when Hugh Bonneville stood up to read a snippet of Paddington Bear.

The seven-year-old stole viewers’ hearts with her ‘priceless’ reaction as her face lit up during the tribute to the late Queen, her great-grandmother.

Speaking at the start of the programme, Kate said: ‘This Christmas will be our first without Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

“Her Majesty held Christmas close to her heart as a time that brought us together.”

Later in the show, Kate describes a sweet connection between the late Queen and her young children.

Sharing a family photo of Queen as a child staging a Christmas production, the Princess said: ‘It really touched me and seeing Her Majesty here doing the production on Christmas Day during World War II , which I found really special.

“I also remember doing this stuff when I was a little girl… when I saw this picture it’s wonderful because I saw my kids love to do this stuff , put on little shows for us. That’s when they ask me to join them so we dance around the table!
