“It’s an amazing painting and very original. The artist has totally captured the magic of the film. William and Kate are going to be absolutely thrilled when they receive it,” a source tells the publication.
Though Cawston has declined to comment on the anonymous gift giver, he confirms that the large painting is indeed to be sent to the royal family, saying, “The Homarge Gallery has been commissioned to paint a picture for the Cambridges.”
