Oil on canvas, collection: The Regimental Museum of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.


I saw this painting on the Facebook page British Commonwealth. Is Her Majesty wearing the Order of the Thistle?

Yes, she wearing the robe but without the collar.

It almost looked like some one photo shopped a bad William head on a portrait on a young George V with that old style collar. Hope that portrait is hidden in a basement loo because it isn't very good. Making a 18 yr in the year 2000 look like he is in the 1910s isn't a good ideal.

Flury uses this mannered style for his portraits. It seems this work was a gift upon the Prince's 18th birthday. See RITRATTISTI :: Pittore e Ritrattista Albert Edwin Flury for more info.

Albert Edwin is one grand and superb painter!
His use of color is outstanding!
