The Duchess of Cambridge has inspired many authors and artists, but illustrator Georgie Fearns has taken things on step further and created an entire colouring book dedicated to the stylish royal! Prince George and Princess Charlotte's mother has been immortalized in a series of drawings of her various outings, whether on a royal tour with husband Prince William, heading to an official engagement with the Queen, or spending quality time with her sister Pippa Middleton.
Colour in Kate, published by Buster Books, is aimed at young children and allows them to customize the 35-year-old's iconic outfits with their own pretty patterns and colours, with most pages already partly coloured in to give them a creative prompt. The book has actually been in publication since 2013, but is enjoying a surge of popularity after eagle-eyed royal enthusiasts spotted it and were eager to get their hands on a copy.
You won't need to break the bank if you want to treat your little ones – the book currently sells on Amazon for just £5.99. It's not the only book dedicated to Kate in the publisher's range – they also have a popular Dress Up Kate sticker book where budding fashion designers can create their own looks for the fashion icon! It's a particularly exciting tribute to Kate, who is a fan of colouring books herself - particularly the series of illustrations created by renowned artist Johanna Basford. Prince William revealed his wife's arty pastime last year when he presented Johanna with an OBE and told her that Kate is a big fan of her Secret Garden colouring book, which has sold millions of copies worldwide.
It comes as no surprise that Kate likes to relax with colouring books – she is renowned for her love of all things art. Counting the National Gallery and The Art Room amongst her patronages, Kate also studied art history at the University of St Andrews, where she met William. The mother-of-two never fails to get stuck into arts and crafts projects when she is out on official engagements, whether she's adding finishing touches to a mural, making dinosaur-themed pencil toppers with children at the Natural History Museum, or painting a ceramic elephant with William during the couple's royal tour of India and Bhutan.
