That story sounds familiar. I wonder who it was?

A historic painting of Queen Elizabeth II has been acquired by The National Museum of Australia. Apparently, Her Majesty has an identical painting in her private collection

I think it was the most widely used portrait of HM in Australia in the past. It is also one of my favourties!

I think it is a very nice picture. William does appear to look a little older then his years but Harry is dead on...

Can anyone identify the subject in the portrait-within-a-portrait, over William's shoulder in the new painting? I'm having trouble deciding who it is. Supposedly the scene is set in Clarence House, maybe in the library, if that helps at all.

ETA: I've found an answer -- it's Augustus John's portrait of George Bernard Shaw.

This first portrait of the brothers is really nice. I like how it shows where William and Harry are in their lives with them wearing their current uniforms. And they look formal but yet relaxed. Nicely done.

Actually William has left the army and is now in the RAF and I think Harry has left this regiment as well so they aren't their 'current' uniforms but ones they were wearing in 2008.

Actually I meant "current" at the time the painting was done.
Paragraph from the article:
"Both wear the uniform of the Household Cavalry, in which Prince William, now 27, was a lieutenant at the time of the sittings from August to December 2008."

I like this painting. You have to watch it from a little distance of course, otherwise William looks a bit old. But I'm fond of their both poses. William and Harry appear very smart in their uniforms.

New Queen portrait by unknown graduate - Telegraph

The Scottish Parliament’s first official portrait of the Queen will be taken by an unknown photographer instead of a seasoned professional, it has been announced.

Holyrood chiefs have decided to launch a competition for a photography graduate to take the picture at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh this summer.

Indeed very much like his mother. The portrait is very striking.
