If the article didn't clearly state the portrait was that of the Queen (at whatever age), I would have asked "Who is the lady with the long neck"?
The portrait looks absolutely nothing like her.

On a slightly different note, is it possible the tiara the Queen is wearing is the no-longer-existing Nizam of Hyderabad tiara?

It almost looks like the Nizam of Hyderabad tiara.

I would've known that portrait was The Queen. To me it's a work of art, not meant to be perfect.

My grandmother's sister have a copy of a painting of a young girl sitting in the grounds infront of Windsor Castle. She have no idea who the little girl is but it's actually a portrait of the young Princess Elizabeth. I told her who the young girl is but she don't believe me.

It's a portrait like this of Princess Elizabeth but with Windsor in the background:

The Duke of Edinburgh has attended the funeral of his niece, Princess Margarita of Baden in at the St Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in London today, January 24, 2013. Born in 1932, Margarita was one of three children of Prince Berthold, Margrave of Baden, and his wife, Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark, a sister of the Duke. Crown Prince Alexander and Queen Anne-Marie attended as well.

I find it reminiscent of the famous protrait of Consuelo Vanderbilt while Duchess of Marlborough. Same exaggeratedly long neck

Thanks, cepe - I had no idea! This is a lovely church. Maybe not classically beautiful, but I love the tawny stone and the grounds. I'd love to see it from the inside in person.

"Wearing a pink outfit and accompanied by a lady-in-waiting, the Queen, who is the branch’s president, arrived at West Newton village hall shortly before 3pm, where she was greeted by the institute’s chairman, Yvonne Browne."

Is this Yvonne Brown the woman who writes Yvonne's Royalty? Just curious..

I don't think so, Michelle, her companion seems to have very blonde hair. I think Margaret Rhodes has let her hair grey naturally.
