LONDON -- Britain's Royal Mint has released a commemorative coin featuring supposedly lifelike portraits of Prince William and his bride-to-be - but critics say Kate Middleton has a right to be horrified.
Images of the couple on the memento bear little resemblance to either the prince or his 28-year-old betrothed. Middleton appears plump in the face and lips and has bags under her eyes. Some critics claim William looks like Al Gore.
Available in silver or gold, the 5-pound ($7.70) coin marks the April 29 wedding of the second-in-line to the British throne.

Hillbuzz said kate looked like a young ozzie osborne.
It may be a ploy by the engraver to issue a Wedding Coin.
They said Kate & William signed off on the coin.
"Love is Blind?"
They both look awful. He actually has much more defined features and so does she - not that you’d know that from this coin. They both look like walruses.
Back to the drawing board!
Only the Queen signed off on the coin.
I have only seen her a couple of times on TV but thought she was very pretty. That image on the coin does not look at all like her.
I will also say she is prettier than Princess Di.
Prince William doesn’t just look like Al Gore; he looks like a Zombey version of Al Gore. Night of the living dead.
I just noticed something else.
That image looks just like my Granddaughter. She is really sweet but just a bit pudgy.
My first thought when I saw the coin,Janis.
I see a melt of these coins in the very near future.
OMG,that’s just awful.
Whoever approved this coin should look for another line of work.
Prince William doesnt even have enough hair to do the Al Gore Combover.
Who know Al Gore and Janis Joplin would be engraved on the historical coin.
I think Kate’s image bears a striking resemblance to the USA Sacajaweau Dollar coin.
Dang, is that Al Gore’s nose on Diana...
He has made it onto Two Brit coins.
That is just horrible!
