Five local illustrators have gone to work recreating the Duchess of Cambridge in their own style, dressed up in the finest couture from top local designers.
Explaining what it is they love about the world's latest royal, it is clear that these illustrators share a global sentiment: that Kate's grace, confidence, and warmth have captivated the world as much as her beauty has.
"Kate Middleton is, without a doubt, the world's new style icon," says Aspasia Karras, editor of Marie Claire
South Africa. "We have honoured her with a fan-art tribute, dressing her up in clothes by South African designers and placing her in all sorts of fun, everyday situations."
