Kate Middleton marks National Portrait Gallery reopening


Emin said: “When I arrived, I was anxious.

“There was all these other things that were on my mind, and I totally forgot about the doors!

“So when I came up, I gasped – it was a big surprise and that lifted my energy.”

Sir Paul and his wife Nancy Shevell met the princess to discuss his upcoming exhibition.

Kate waved to crowds gathered outside the gallery as she departed.

Nicholas Cullinan, director of the gallery, said the princess was “fantastic” and “really passionate”.

He added: “To have a senior member of the Royal Family that really cares about culture, museums, art and is knowledgeable and supportive is such a great thing for this country.”

Opened in 1856, the National Portrait Gallery moved to its current location off Trafalgar Square 40 years later. It houses over 11,000 portraits of historically famous and important British people in its Primary Collection.
