There are lots of people who claim to be descended from  supposed children of this union.  However, there The Duke of Kent had no children by Mme de St Laurent.  If there were any, they would have been recorded somewhere, as such children were usually acknowledged, as his brothers did with their numerous illegitimate offspring.  There were some who argue that the records were destroyed, but there would still be some mention in correspondence somewhere.  There would have been no reason to keep such children a secret.

She was very young in this portrait, she looks strange and different than in the majority of
her portraits, she looks sooo beautiful. isn't it a little bit... idealized??

Perhaps because is strange for me to see her as young as in this portrait, but she changed
a lot with the time

i have seen portrait of her younger days but i could recognice her. If you dont tell me is it her, i could never think it was Victoria cause the lady of that portrait has no her face (AKA nose, cheeks, eyes)

Perhaps looking her more carefully, or perhaps because she looks not as plump as in other of her
portraits, even of her as a young lady

i think the artist just wanted to make her a "bit Different". Artistic licenses and stuff...

I notice that there are some where she seems a bit idealized (hardly unusual).  There's one -- done by Winterhalter, I think -- where she is seated, wearing her regalia, and staring straight forward.  She looks like Alice, or even Vicky.

Well, at least in that one she keeps some of the "hannover" facial features , thing it doesnt happen in the portrait we were talking about, cause if you look at it you cant see those facial features at all. Totally idealized

Indeed true ;-) Many paintings (even of other royals) don't look completely like they were really,
it was a little bit common on those days

Just like a lot of photos are "touched up" nowadays!!
