Piers Morgan Break Silence Amid Kate Middleton’s Latest Portrait for Tatler Cover

Piers Morgan has finally broken his silence regarding Kate Middleton’s latest portrait, created by British-Zambian artist Hannah Uzor for Tatler’s July 2024 cover.

The former Good Morning Britain host expressed his strong disapproval on X (formerly Twitter), sharing the new portrait with the caption: “What on earth is this??! Never seen a worse royal portrait, yet they still made it a cover?! Poor Kate.”

This reaction comes after Tatler, a British magazine, revealed the portrait of the Princess of Wales on its official Instagram handle.

Tatler announced, “The Queen, the King and now, the Princess of Wales: Tatler’s July 2024 cover completes a royal triptych of historic magnitude with a new portrait of Her Royal Highness by British-Zambian artist Hannah Uzor.”

This latest cover follows Tatler’s July 2022 Platinum Jubilee cover featuring Queen Elizabeth II and the July 2023 Coronation cover of King Charles III.

The portrait, alongside its predecessors, has inspired the new Akoje Residency, a collaboration with the King’s Foundation.

This initiative allows African, Caribbean, and diasporic artists to spend time at the King’s estate, Dumfries House in Scotland, to focus on their artistic practice.

Morgan’s criticism highlights a divisive response to the artwork, contrasting the magazine’s intention to celebrate the royal figures with what some perceive as an unflattering portrayal.

Despite the controversy, the portrait remains a significant addition to the ongoing series of royal covers by Tatler.
