I really like that portrait. It took me a few minutes to figure out just why and it finally hit me. The style in which it was painted blends in so very nicely with portraits that have been painted throughout the ages of historical personages as how they represent their roles and positions. Adding this one to a long list of paintings, it'd show a continuity not only of the monarchy and a beloved, long reigning monarch, but the continuity in the Order of the Thistle also.

I would say this might be on my top list of the best portraits of HM. Just out of curiosity, did she compliment the artist or let somehow know she likes the portrait?

She tries to be diplomatic - read this telegraph article from January 2015:
Rankin: 'I see the person, not the celebrity' - Telegraph
Quote:
Famed for shooting the stars of the Nineties, the photographer is now focusing on less glitzy subjects

The moment Rankin glimpsed the Queen laughing with one of her staff, he knew that was the shot he wanted. “I watched her walk down this long corridor at Buckingham Palace with a guy who must have been at least 6ft. She’s tiny, and she was looking up at him, smiling and chatting, and I thought, 'You’re exactly what I want you to be. You’re a real person’. ”

But the photographer, who shot Her Majesty back in 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations, had only five minutes, and was desperate to make her laugh again. “So I started saying 'Ma’am’, like 'jam’. 'Ma’am, you have to smile, please’ – I was like Austin Powers. And she just laughed at me. She was really funny, making a lot of jokes – very dry. Photography is all about collaboration – and she gave it to me.”

The end result is the Queen grinning in front of the Union flag. “She wrote back to me, having seen the shot, saying, 'I love the stitching on the flag’. That’s the Queen’s way of not having an opinion. That’s classy. It’s like saying, 'I like the photograph, I’m just not commenting on myself’.

Now that, m'friends, is the ultimate mastery of diplomacy.

The Queen is in Dundee today.

I love this portrait as well for the very same reasons - it will stand the test of time. Does anyone know who the bust is on the table to the left of her? As nothing is left to chance in these portraits i am curious

The Queen’s Body Guard for Scotland, Royal Company of Archers has commissioned a portrait of Her Majesty The Queen to mark The Queen’s 90th Birthday, which has been painted by the artist Nicky Philipps. The Queen is wearing the robes of The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle and is depicted standing at the top of the staircase in Archers’ Hall. The picture includes a bust of Sir Walter Scott who was instrumental in establishing a ceremonial role for the Royal Company for the visit to Scotland by King George IV in 1822. Also included in the picture are the Colours of the Royal Company which were presented by The Queen in 1966. The portrait is full length and will hang in the dining room in Archers’ Hall.

She looks very majestic in this portrait. Also, I see quite a resemblance to her mother around the eyes and brows.

I saw that too! But when I see her in videos and photos, then she looks like her grandmother.

A classic from the Duke: "Those sticky things."
Any visit to a jeweler makes it a good day, but I would have been over the moon to meet Andy Scott. I'd have had a thousand questions for him!

We've not seen Her Majesty in far too long! Not that I begrudge her a vacation, but that I am thrilled this is the Braemar Gathering Weekend! A lovely panorama here from Mark Cuthbert to get us all in the mood! https://twitter.com/markacuthbert/st...04715869507588
