"The image was based on a formal meeting with the Duke of Cambridge when he came to visit my portrait 'The Queen', which was unveiled at the Millennium Stadium last year" said Mr Llywelyn Hall.

"It was him looking over towards the portrait, which was in the lobby above the players' tunnel in the Millennium Stadium."

"Some notion of sort of destiny.... and I liked that as an image in itself."

A new portrait of Prince William by a Welsh artist will be revealed at the Welsh Office in Westminster later today.

The painting, entitled "Fatherhood" is by Dan Llywelyn Hall who has experience painting royals - his portrait of the Queen which was commissioned by the Welsh Rugby Union was unveiled in Cardiff last year.

His latest work will depict the Duke of Cambridge wearing a dark suit and a red tie with a poppy in his lapel.

The portrait will then be open to public bidding at the First World War Centenary Sale auction in October - with all proceeds going to The Victoria Cross Trust and the War Memorial Trust.
