The Sun reports that the painting, which was selected by Middleton from the royal collection, has a plaque on it which bears the piece’s alternative name. 

According to the report, the Duchess, 34, and William, 33, had the nameplate removed from the piece, and placed a potted plant in front of the painting to hide where the plaque had been.According to reports, the painting in question is by Dutch artist Aelbert Cuyp and is titled “A Page With Two Horses.” The landscape piece from 1660 is also known as “The Negro Page,” and features a black servant boy with two steeds.
