Artist Ashley Longshore of New Orleans painted the 38-year-old donning a cape and crown gazing lovingly at her newborn son Archie for the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The portrait is based on a snap taken of Meghan when she appeared in front of cameras two days after giving birth to her son, now six months old. Ms Longshore took to Instagram to share her latest creations and revealed she was approached by the magazine who asks her to paint the Duchess of Sussex as she sees her.
The talented American artist painted a separate picture of the Duchess of Cambridge surrounded by colourful butterflies and her three young children.
Ms Longshore said: “Harpers asked me to paint Meghan in ‘my way’ so I painted her as Wonder Woman.
“I think she is so poised and so beautiful.

“I also think she is enduring so much stress and pressure from constant media scrutiny. I cant imagine how that must feel especially being a new mom and wife with a very public role.
“I think she is regal, beautiful and very graceful. She is a wondrous woman.”
Prince Harry and Meghan’s son is painted wrapped in a blanket and wearing a hat bearing the Royal Family’s crest.
