What do we think of the new portrait?


  A very interesting composition!  Rather a contemplative "History confronts History"--------- "Here I began."  
  Though I could change my mind, at the moment I rather like it.  Absolutely alone with her thoughts/memories, knowing that in the final analysis, it is just she...........   Subtly dramatic and well done.

Alexsander you took the words out of my mouth.  I like it a lot.


Has a very reflective, "This is where it started. Have I done well?" kind of feel to it.

  On the "Glittering Royal Events Message Board," the section "British Royals Message Board" has a superb detail of the portrait as its banner.

I absolutely love it! It's a marvellous mixture of the traditional and reflection as a fashionably contemporary concept. I certainly want to see it in London next year and I wonder where I can buy a print?

I think this is the best portrait of Her Majesty since the early years of her reign.  I would love to see it side-by-side with the official coronation painting.

I agree Chris.  I wish it had been displayed at the NPG during the Jubilee celebrations [60 years a Queen] As I am not likely to ever be in Canberra, I would not mind a card of it [hint]
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

The Queen followed in the footsteps of her grandfather, King George V, who unveiled the cenotaph in 1920

The Daily Mail has a serious of photos--one for each year of, and from, their marriage--of the Queen and Prince Philip together. Some of them are very sweet. :)
