The Queen is in Dundee today.

The Dundee papers were also full of it.

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 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

The bandage on her right leg has been there for a very long time. Even at her advanced age, that is a long time for a injury to heal.

She has been wearing a bandage over a bruise etc on that leg since the summer. Maybe a very slow healing injury - not uncommon in the very old.

Yes, that's been there for a very long time now, perhaps the result of a knock. I hope it's not developing into an ulcer. The Queen should get some fresh air and sunshine on it.
