The most "epical" portrait of Queen Elizabeth II | Spletnik.ru

The only epical element in the portrait is Balmoral.

Gatwick Airport have installed 2 v large pix of the Queen which are formed from photographs of BBC S-East viewers. Sounds odd but looks great.

I like this picture. He looks so distinguished and every inch a Prince. He actually has gotten more handsome as he has gotten older. :)

I definitely agree with you that's he's grown more distinguished and good looking as he's gotten older. The portrait however, at a first glance, looks more like Andrew to me.

The Prince of Wales has always managed to look very good in his uniforms. Very Kingly, IMO.

Well, that's certainly an incongruous setting for those magnificent robes and jewels. HM looks like she's wondering how she wound up in a bucolic field with all that finery!

And I also agree with the comments that the Prince of Wales has gotten more handsome and distinguished looking in his latter years. Like a fine wine, he gets better with age!

I kind of like the portrait. It has a majestic feel to it. It almost looks like she is gazing out over her lands and thinking," this is all mine and how beautiful it is indeed, and I am the Queen." I know that is what I would think.

Beautiful official portrait of a young Queen Elizabeth II in her role as Colonel-in-Chief of the Grenadier Guards:
Message personnel

I must say that it's too bad that Her Majesty no longer wear her uniforms. I always thought she looked great in them.

I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the "Different facets of Diana" thread in Diana's sub forum, but I thought I'd post it here since it's a portrait of a British royal.

***
Israel Zohar, a painter, painted a portrait of what he thought Diana would look like if she was still alive now. He previously painted a portrait of her in 1990. According to the article, he said "I didn't want to make her look too old because I don't think she would've aged too much". Here's the link to the article:

I don't think she would've aged that much either but it's an interesting portrait. I think she had her mothers looks.

I agree, they do look alike.

A beautiful Official Picture of TRH The Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall:

I think Testino did a great job with these two.

That is a lovely photo of the couple. When was this taken?

TRH The Earl and Countess of Wessex official photos from 2012:

Edward and Sophie, Sophie and Edward

The images are so photoshopped, but they are nice, particularly the one of them together.

Sophie and Edward don't look photoshopped to me. The worst case was William and Catherine's engagmeent pix by Testino. So bad as to be close to blurred. I think that man is not as good as he used to be.

I really like these pix of the Wessex's.

Wow!! That is one of the most flattering evening gowns I've ever seen Camilla in. She looks amazing in this portrait.

BTW...Is she wearing her Turquoise set for this? I tried enlarging the picture, but only blurred things. Thanks in advance!!
