The Duke of Cambridge is a Search and Rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force. At the time of this portrait, Prince William was a Lieutenant in The Household Cavalry (Blues and Royals), and wears the star and sash of the Order of the Garter, the British order of Chivalry founded in 1348, to which he was appointed by Her Majesty The Queen in 2008. He married Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey in April 2011.
Prince Harry, the Duke's brother, holds the rank of Captain in the Household Cavalry (Blues and Royals) and is training to become an Army Air Corps Helicopter Pilot. In early 2008, he served with NATO forces in Afghanistan. Both princes are patrons of several organisations and charities.
The artist trained at the City and Guilds School of Art and the Cecil Graves Studio in Florence.
