Will, Kate happily accept painting from artist with Down syndrome
Prince William and Duchess Kate have given artist Tazia Fawley something that transcends their royal stamp of approval.
When word reached Fawley — a 43-year-old British artist with Down syndrome — that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had happily accepted one of her paintings as a gift for the birth of their son Prince George, she was over the moon.
“We felt absolutely delighted,’’ Fawley’s mother, Gylda Thomas, told TODAY.com. “It was a lovely thing that they did. Since Taz has had this publicity, I’ve gotten loads of emails from people, usually parents with Down’s children, saying how wonderful Taz is and what kind of a role model she is.”
Fawley spent six months creating her painting of children’s favorite Rupert the Bear flying over a bridge in the Bristol Balloon Festival in England. A photograph of the painting was taken by Suzie Moffat, the director of Heart & Sold, which promotes artists with Down syndrome.
Moffat submitted the photo to St. James Palace, asking whether the royal couple would be interested in having the actual painting. Moffat then received a letter from the palace saying Prince William and Duchess Kate would gladly accept it.
Note the Royal couple have told well wishers to contribute to charity instead of sending gifts and apparently have rejected most of the gifts that were sent to them.
I’ve seen worse with six figure price tags.
Via a comment by Ignatz at JustOneMinute and PuffHo which I don’t feel like linking to as the libtards are spewing their eugenics in the comments there. One comment there does puzzle me.

i think it takes more than the royal couple to raise the stigma off of down syndrome IF there is a stigma there.Is there really?I know there isnt in the US but England might be different.I do know that this couple are gracious and good people.
humaneisfact seems to have a lousy memory. If there is no stigma attached to Downs syndrome then why did PuffHo commenters and others attack Palin over her decision not to abort Trigg?
