Kate & Wills, the new faces of contemporary art?

Curator of the Tudor and Stuart court art at the V&A Tessa Murdoch has suggested that the younger Royals should be investing in “cutting-edge and modern art” in order for them to encourage young artistic talent. Or, in simpler terms, to make art ‘cool’.

In a time when art is becoming more accessible to the masses, and only the wealthy class keep a stake in the originals, is it such a bad idea to have the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge fuelling the art market?

Obviously, Jamie Reid won’t be hanging on the palace walls any time soon, and we can’t imagine Old Liz commissioning Banksy to work his magic on the walls of Buckingham Palace. And, after the recent unfortunate official painting of Kate not going down so well, maybe it is time for the Royals to look into this ever growing market.

Who knows, Peter Blake might do his next collage with the Royals…
