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

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.
