According to reports, the Duchess of Cambridge drew a sketch of St. Marks's church in Englefield where the couple married. This drawing was featured on their order of service.

The artwork was visible on the front of the booklet guests including Prince Harry, Prince William, and Spencer Matthews, were pictured carrying as they left the church following the ceremony.

It's also being claimed that Reverend Nick Wynne-Jones—who officiated the nuptials—described Kate's drawing as a "lovely piece," the Sunreports, and that brother-in-law James even mentioned it in his speech. At the lavish reception at the Middletons' home, James is believed to have said in front of the estimated 300 guests: "And to Pippa's sister Kate, such ability—a beautiful drawing of St. Mark's church in the order of service."

Referring to her reading, he added: "A flawless reading and a kind loan of two adorable little ones."

Kate has revealed her photography skills with her recent portraits of her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. She also studied Art History at St. Andrews University, and her interest in the subject has lead to patronages of London's National Portrait Gallery and the charity The Art Room.

Speaking about her roles previously with the Daily Mail, she said: "I am a firm believer in the power of art to make a difference."
