Street Artist Turns William And Kate Into Sid And Nancy For Wedding Gift

Posted: Updated:

Prince William and Kate Middleton have never looked so punk rock. Street artist Rich Simmons has transformed the engaged royal couple from upper crust to punk rock icons in a new mural he painted as their wedding gift.

According to the Associated Foreign Press, the mural "depicts the prince dressed up as the Sex Pistols' leather-clad bass player, while a cigarette-toting Kate Middleton plays the role of Vicious's girlfriend, Nancy Spungen." (AFP) Above the couple, Simmons included text that reads "FUTURE ****KING."

While the painting is surely among the stranger wedding gifts the couple will receive, it may be trumped only by the gift reportedly coming to the couple from South Africa-based airline Kulula.com, who will be sending the happy pair a traditional herd of cows.
