Attendees of Pippa Middleton’s recent wedding to James Matthews received an Order of Service outlining the progression of events at the nuptials, featuring a drawing of the venue — St. Mark’s Church — on the cover page.
The artist who drew the church has been revealed as none other than the bride’s sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, reports The Sun.
Duchess Kate, who studied art history student at Cambridge, has rarely displayed her artistic talents, but received two thumbs up from the clergyman who performed her sister’s wedding.
“A lovely piece,” is how Reverend Nick Wynee-Jones, who performed the ceremony, described the drawing to The Sun.
As The Sun recalls, the Duchess is a solid supporter of the arts, once declaring: “I am a firm believer in the power of art to make a difference.”
The Duchess’s artistic skills were reportedly praised by her new brother-in-law during his speech, in which he offered thanks.
“And to Pippa’s sister Kate, such ability — a beautiful drawing of St Mark’s church in the order of service,” said Matthews, adding a mention of her reading in church and the participation of her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who served as pageboy and pagegirl.
“A flawless reading and a kind loan of two adorable little ones,” he added.
