So This Is What Kate Middleton Looks Like as a Simpsons Character
Newly released, "Simpsonized" drawings of the Duchess delight fans everywhere
Kate Middleton is one of those most talented sorts of women who manage to gracefully and effortlessly be everywhere all at once. But here's an angle we never saw coming. She’s just made an appearance—and quite a bewitching one, we might add—in the drawings of the artist aleXsandro Palombo.
While these images weren't created by anyone affiliated with the show, they’re done by the same artist who previously “Simpsonized” celebrities like Kim and Kanye, and it looks like he's given the Duchess that same spot-on Simpsons treatment. Yep, our lady Kate is now bright yellow, oddly almond-eyed, and wearing a classic Simpson-y smirk instead of her trademark bright, toothy grin.
Transformation complete: Kate Middleton is now a Simpsons character! Well, at least on the internet. Palombo released the images via Twitter today and then stood back and watched them go viral. There’s a vast selection of drawings, too, to strike any of your myriad "Kate Simpson" fancies. Kate (Simpson?) and Queen Mary walking down a grand hallway not remotely near each other? Check. Kate (Simpson?) and the queen perched on a loveseat in Buckingham Palace, or how 'bout stiffly waving and smiling with those stern buttery Simpson-mugs of theirs? Check.
In any case, it's clear the drawings were a labor of love for Palombo; they look quite painstaking, and they'd make any Simpsons—or Middleton—fan proud.

Humor Chic News - DAILYMAIL "The Duchess of Cambridge as you've never seen her before - transformed into a SIMPSON!"
AleXsandro Palombo has immortalised Kate as a Simpson
Undertook the project to celebrate her style
She's lauded as one of the most stylish women in the world - and now one artist has celebrated the Duchess of Cambridge's fashion influence in a rather unusual way.
Italian AleXsandro Palombo transformed Duchess of Cambridge into a dead ringer for a cast member of The Simpsons in a series of illustrations.
The contemporary artist, illustrator and activist has 'Simpsonized' the Royal in a succession of her best-known outfits.
Starring alongside the Queen at various Buckingham Palace settings, the new mother can be seen mocked up with the same facial expression as Homer, Marge and Bart Simpson.
His blog, entitled 'An exclusive tour at Buckingham Palace with Princess Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth II immortalized in their royal iconic style by artist aleXsandro Palombo' is the latest offering from the Italian blogger.
His previous work includes recreating Disney princesses as disabled and as victims of domestic abuse on his blog Humor Chic.
While she has been staying at home with Prince George a lot lately, it was recently revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge will be guest of honour at a spectacular celebration in Malta next month, on her first solo foreign tour on behalf of the Queen.
Kate will leave her young son, Prince George, behind - as well as her husband, Prince William - for two days of official events to mark the 50th anniversary of the island’s independence from the UK.
It is a sign of her confidence in her grandson’s wife that the monarch has asked the Duchess to travel to the Mediterranean island which holds a special place in her heart.

Humor Chic News - E! Entertainment Television "See Every Outfit Kate Middleton Has Ever Worn—in Simpsons Fashion! Check Out the Pics"
If Kate Middleton is ever called upon to make an official visit to Springfield, she is more than ready.
Having plenty of chic outfits to work with, artist aleXsandro Palombo has immortalized the Duchess of Cambridge many times over in the guise of a character from The Simpsons, turning Kate into a pale yellow, eight-fingered royal.
Queen Elizabeth II appears with her in several pics and, in one, there are dozens of duchesses, each wearing one of her many already legendy sartorial ensembles, hats and all. We could stare for days...
Palombo (who is not affiliated with The Simpsons) posted his various incarnations on Humor Chic in a post titled "Welcome to Buckingham Palace."
Kate and the queen are featured giving oh-so-royal waves in front of the Palace gates, by the grand staircase and in the Throne Room.
Here's a sampling, plus more can be found on Humor Chic! Seriously, almost everything, from her instantly iconic buttercup-yellow Jenny Packham shirt dress to the lavender Alexander McQueen she wowed in when she and Prince William attended the BAFTA "Brits to Watch" gala in Los Angeles on a 2011 tour.
