Since Waity's first portrait went on exhibition today, I thought it would be fun to have a post for royal portraits.

Two of my favorites of all time:






I love how Margaret's has flowers in the background, while Elizabeth's has trees with bare branches. Their poses are very similar, yet the mood is totally different.

I like a lot of the de Laszlo portraits of various royals. I think the one of the Queen Mother clutching pearls, another of Marie of Romania with the kokoshnik style tiara, and my all time favorite, the one of Prince Louis of Battenberg.

I think Annigoni's1956 painting of QEII (above) was the most amazing painting - the Queen was about 30 ... (like Waity). It was a timeless portrait with great Majesty.  I doubt if we will be looking at the Emsley painting at the gallery in 55 years time

I agree, the portrait of the Queen, is amazing, but for me the better one, was the portrait of princess Margaret, the portraits of Lazlo were awesome too... poor waity... Whistle

Another portrait gone wrong.

Is there a catalog of all official Portraits of QEII? She must have spent countless hours sitting for portraits.

Holy cow. The Queen's neck is so long in that painting that she looks like the Tenniel illustration of Alice after she ingested the ``drink me'' bottle.
