Which Royals support which art ?

Being the daughter of a sculptor this question comes naturally to my mind !

Which Royal person or Prince or Princess is interested in which art : painting, sculptures, music, movies, classical or modern dance, fashion, culinary arts, fotography, others... And which of them supports an art in particular ?

I'm sure many of them do.

However, being an accomplished artist herself, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark is the first person that comes to my mind. She has not only supported the arts in the past as well as present, she encourages the medium through her various patronages, private as well as personal.

Give me a moment to find some of her own personal artwork.

All I know is that Queen Sonja uses to visit the Edvard Munch Museum with nearly every person who visits Norway (during State Visits for example). She and Harald also visited the Munch Museum with their wedding guest one or two days before their wedding.
So, I guess Sonja loves Munch's Art!
During a film about the Queen they showed her painting watercolor/aquarell pictures of landscapes.


I also remember seeing pictures of Queen Beatrix doing a sculpture of her son Constantijn. I think she did several sculptures so far. But I don't know if she still does it...

Princess Diana was a keen dancer and I'm fairly sure she was a patron for the English National Ballet.
