I agree. It was not one person who never saw the artist's other work and just pulled a name out of a hat. I don't doubt for a minute that a group of people spent a lot of time deciding on the style they wanted for this portrait. Wouldn't it be horrible if every portrait of the Queen looked alike. I am sure many people were shocked by the Andy Warhol portraits when they were done. But low and behold, the Royal Collection spent millions to get the portraits they had missing. Until you see a set of Andy Warhol sets united, you cannot understand how lonely the individuals look when you see them.

Portrait protocol - from Queen Victoria to King Edward

Hey all - I have a question. Does anyone know what the official protocol was when Queen Victoria died? How long did her portrait stay up in official buildings and when was it replaced with Edward's? He wasn't coronated for a year, so there wouldn't have been an official portrait of him. So did Queen Vic just stay on the walls until his coronation?

I don't think there is official protocol for portraits, but I imagine when she died, after the mourning period portraits were taken down and replaced with either an uncoronated Edward one or one of something else.

Which buildings have pictures of the Monarch in/.

I'm thinking of buildings like Post Offices, Police Stations, official places. And around the Commonwealth.

Haven't been in any police stations lately but I don't think the portrait of the Monarch is hung in post offices, police stations or official buildings nowadays. In military buildings her portrait may be seen. Of course I can't speak for the Victorian era.

At that time ALL official buildings would have had a portrait of the monarch - schools and government offices and many private businesses.

There were already numerous portraits of Edward before his coronation and he was king immediately.

My understanding is that during the mourning period portraits of Victoria would have been drapped in black cloth and when the new portraits were ready they would have gone up with or without a crown.

The Jubilee portrait of the Queen (alone in Westminster Abbey) was released earlier. I love this painting but always wanted. To see a real close up of HMQ
And here it is. Think this is probably one of the best. thoughtful and moving.

I agree. Definately a "What is she thinking?" portrait.

That portrait wowed me. There's a sadness to her face in it. Almost like she's thinking of all those who have come before her and is taking a private moment to mourn them - the kings and queens whose legacies provided a basis for HM's existence (and her eventual legacy as well).

We have another new portrait, frankly looks photoshopped to me.

Is this the most astonishing photoshoot of the Queen ever? Yes, it really IS Her Majesty as Queen of Scots amid the heather (moments before a midge invasion) | Mail Online

Actually I thought it looked like she was standing in front of a very very large painting of the Scottish countryside until I read the articles and saw the set up of the photographers taking the shoot.

I have to say its one of the best portraits I've seen of HM lately

All I can say is that she does not wear any tiara when dressed in Thistle robes - she wears the plumed hat, which she seems to be carrying in her hand.

And the tiara doesn't look right

I think the portrait is very nice. I think it may look funny because of the landscaping. She could've taken the picture inside the castle but did it out outdoors and I like it. She put the Cambridge Emeralds back into the Vladimir tiara.

The area around Balmoral is absolutely beautiful. The more I see, the more I can understand why the Windsors love it so much. That's why it really didn't surprise me that a 87 year old woman would take all the time to get fitted out in all the regalia, drive 25 minutes (or was it 25 miles. Early here and not enough coffee yet) to the spot and obviously walk among the heather to the spot she was photographed at.

This photo reflects HM to a tee. I love it!

I got the sense from Sepho's post that he/she really believes the portrait is photoshopped and appeared to try to back up his/her claim.
