The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reportedly over the moon with a picture they are hanging in Prince George's nursery, gifted to them by a talented Somerset artist with Down's Syndrome.

Tazia Fawley, 43, from Burnham on Sea, gave the young prince one of her favourite paintings, a brightly-coloured landscape featuring hot air balloons and beloved children's character Rupert the Bear, which took her about six months to paint.

Talented Tazia painted for up to five hours every day to create the piece, entitled Rupert Flies over the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol.

Tazia gets her artistic ability from her mother Glyda Fawley. Glyda is a sculptor and used to teach at prestigious art colleges in London.
