The artist, believed 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 king’s festive work, which featured a reindeer with a robin on its body and antlers, was “pretty” and showed an impressive mastery of watercolor.
“I think the love of animals and nature is obviously something that caught his attention,” she told HELLO! Magazine. “That inspires me a lot.”
Hannah, from Lincolnshire, explained it was “a nice surprise” to see the post show on her social media feed, which she immediately recognized as being influenced by one of her Christmas card designs.

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

During the service, which included readings by 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 brave Charlotte, who seemed delighted as Hugh Bonneville stood up to read an excerpt 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.

Opening the programme, Kate said: “This Christmas will be our first without Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
“Her Majesty has taken Christmas very dearly 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 performing a Christmas production, the princess said: “I was really impressed and to see Her Majesty doing the production here on Christmas Day during WWII was really special.
“I remember doing something like this when I was a little girl too… when I saw this photo it was wonderful because I saw my kids’ love of doing something like this, putting on little shows for us. It’s when they ask me to join, so let’s dance around the table!
