Duchess Kate and Prince William reportedly hid the name of a painting from President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, during their visit to Kensington Palace on Friday, April 22.
According to reports, the painting in question is by Dutch artist Aelbert Cuyp and is titled “A Page With Two Horses.” The landscape piece from 1660 is also known as “The Negro Page,” and features a black servant boy with two steeds.
The Sun reports that the painting, which was selected by Kate from the royal collection, has a plaque on it that bears the piece’s alternative name. According to the report, the duchess, 34, and William, 33, had the nameplate removed from the piece and placed a potted plant in front of the painting to hide where the plaque had been.
During the Obamas’ visit, Prince George got to stay up past his bedtime and met the president and first lady, and greeted the couple in his adorable pajama and robe ensemble.
The Obamas visited Kensington Palace to have dinner with the royals. Michelle has been actively involved in Prince Harry’s Invictus Games, which supports wounded veterans.
Kensington Palace had no comment on the matter.
