The artist thought to have inspired Prince George’s Christmas portrait has praised the young royal’s ‘talent’ and ‘eye for colour’.
Hannah Dale – of Wrendale Designs – said the nine-year-old royal’s festive work, which pictured a reindeer with robins perched on his body and antlers was ‘lovely’ and showed an impressive command with watercolours.
‘I think having a love of animals and love of nature is obviously something that’s maybe captured his attention,’ she told HELLO! Magazine. ‘That inspires me very much.’
Hannah, from Lincolnshire, explained that it was ‘a lovely surprise’ to see the post show on her social media feed, which she recognised as being influenced by one of her Christmas card designs straight away.

The artist was happy to see a young talent being encouraged to pursue art, insisting that it’s a ‘fantastic’ ability to get into.
She also expressed her assurance that the Prince and Princess of Wales – who shared their son’s painting on their Instagram account – are proud of their child’s work.
Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 40, wished their followers a merry Christmas as they posted the photo last weekend.

Royal fans were quick to praise the nine-year-old’s artistic flair, suggesting he gets his skills from his mother, who is a keen photographer.
One person said: ‘A budding little artist. Merry Christmas everyone!’
Another said: ‘So much talent for a little guy! Takes after his mummy.’
During the festive period, the young royal siblings appeared onscreen with their parents at their mother’s annual carol service and stole the show.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in the front row of the crowds, joined by their parents and the King and Queen Consort.
During the service, which included readings from Kristin Scott-Thomas and Prince William and performances by Craig David, Alfie Boe and Mel C, the young prince and princess stole the show.
Viewers praised the well-behaved Charlotte, who appeared thrilled when Hugh Bonneville stood to read an extract from Paddington Bear.
The seven-year-old stole viewers’ hearts with her ‘priceless’ reaction as her face lit up during the tribute to the late Queen, her great-grandmother.

Speaking at the start of the programme, Kate said: ‘This Christmas will be our first without her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
‘Her Majesty held Christmas close to her heart as a time that brought us together.’
Later in the show, Kate describes a sweet connection between the late Queen and her young children.
Sharing a family photo of Queen as a child putting on a Christmas production, the Princess says: ‘It really resonated with me, and seeing Her Majesty here doing the production on Christmas day during the second world war, which I thought was really special.
‘I can remember doing this sort of thing as a little girl too… when I saw this photograph it’s wonderful because I saw my children’s love of doing this sort of thing, putting on little shows for us. It’s when they ask me to join in so we’re like, dancing round the table!’
