Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has a new portrait
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has received a new portrait to mark her 90th birthday.
The 90-year-old royal gained a new piece of artwork on Thursday (07.07.16) to celebrate her recent milestone, according to the Windsor Express website.
The portrait was painted from a sitting at Windsor Castle, Surrey, on March 18, which was commissioned by The Queen’s Body Guard for Scotland, Royal Company of Archers, and was created by artist Nicky Philipps.
The piece sees the monarch adorn the robe of The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle whislt she poses at the top of a stairwell in Archers’ Hall in Edinburgh, Scotland.
However, the painting will not reside in the Queen’s London estate at Buckingham Palace but will hang in the dining room in the Archers’ Hall.
Meanwhile, the Queen has been praised as “one of the loveliest people”.
Speaking previously about the royal, John Letford, who served as Lord Provost for 11 years, said: “The Queen is one of the loveliest people you could hope to meet and I am honoured to have been guided her through two of her visits to the city.
“I was involved in both of her Jubilee visits to Dundee and they were absolutely magnificent events.
“Each time she has come to the city has been a fantastic occasion.”
