Working with his partner in grime Damsel Dragonfly, Ruddy Muddy - aka Rick Minns - produced a portrait of the new prince with his parents across the rear doors of a dirty Mercedes Sprinter.

The artist, from Wicklewood, takes several hours to produce his works using a finger, tissues and cotton buds.

Mr Minns, 42, from Wicklewood, started experimenting with the medium 10 years ago, after he became bored with seeing grubby white vans with 'clean me' drawn on them.

He has since produced a string of portraits ranging from pop stars and politicians, to tributes the Prof Stephen Hawking and Ken Dood after their recent deaths.
