I like it.
Yes, lol on the hair.

It is amazing on how much as changed between the reigns. I would like to see The Queen pose for a portrait in her tunic though. She hasn't worn it since 1986, so it would need to be tailored for her again. I think she looked great in it.

Queen Elizabeth II photos in James Bond

Hi all,

I'm doing a little research on M's office in the James Bond film series and have noticed that there are several photos of HM Queen Elizabeth II in his office throughout the different James Bond adventures. I've managed to track down most, but there are a few I cannot find. I was wondering if a few of you may help me. Following is a list of the movies in which they appeared, the artist if known, and a clear shot of the painting if I can find it.

Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Regent by Pietro Annigoni (1955), used in The Man with the Golden Gun (http://screenmusings.org/movie/dvd/T...en-Gun-089.jpg) and A View to a Kill (http://i.imgur.com/fvnsnsB.jpg)

Clear photo: https://a.1stdibscdn.com/archivesE/u...9887_org_z.jpg

Queen Elizabeth II by Dorothy Wilding, 26 February 1952, hand-colored by Beatrice Johnson, used in The Man with the Golden Gun (http://ladymanson.com/galleries/movi...mwtgg_3967.jpg)

Clear photo: http://images.npg.org.uk/800_800/9/3/mw58193.jpg

Queen Elizabeth II by Leonard Boden used in The Spy Who Loved Me (http://screenmusings.org/movie/dvd/T...ed-Me-0025.jpg) and Octopussy (http://caps.pictures/198/3-octopussy...s.com-1589.jpg)

Clear photo: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...75ce9fc0b7.jpg

Now, here's where it gets tricky: I have not been able to track down a few used in Moonraker, Never Say Never Again, and Licence to Kill.

Moonraker: https://i.snag.gy/1QXxPk.jpg
Never Say Never Again: https://i.snag.gy/M14GOi.jpg and https://i.snag.gy/F4xBML.jpg
Licence to Kill: https://i.snag.gy/9Knap5.jpg

Thank you for any help you give me. Googling has given me no help at all, and I've come here as a last resort!

Thanks again,
RoyalEnthusiast

The 96-Year-old Duke of Edinburgh posed for artist Ralph Heimans, who created the striking image which will go on display in Denmark

I love that portrait of Philip. What stands out for me is the pose. The DoE is so often seen with his hands behind his back as he walks and that's what we see in the portrait.

Also, the resemblance between Philip and Charles really stands out for me in this portrait.

A very grand portrait of the Duke of Edinburgh.

I wish the young royals had portraits like this. Very tastefully done.

Pity he is almost lost in the background of the picture. It looks like he is an afterthought and that the real focus is the corridor as that dominates the picture.

He really looks old here - yes I know he is 96 - and in this portrait he looks every one of those years. The eyes look strange as well - very large and out of proportion to the rest of him.

Rather than being a good portrait I would say - done by and average Year 12 Visual Art student aiming for a Band 4 in the HSC (Band 4 is a reported mark from 70 - 79 based on an actual mark of around 35 - 47)

A good and striking portrait, but I feel his face looks more like the Prince Charles', rather than his own.
Also it's a shame his frame is stooped forward - he is normally seen with ramrod-straight posture, and again this stoop is more reminiscent of Prince Charles rather then the DoE, in my opinion.

I've often noticed that Philip does seem to lean forward a bit when he's walking or standing with his hands clasped behind his back. Its a pose that I've come to associate with Philip and I'm glad the artist used it.

With the Great Hall at Windsor behind him, it does make it seem like he's part and parcel of the room rather than standing out as a lone figure with just something behind him. I think it alludes to the fact that for most of his life, Philip has been an integral part of what surrounded him rather than those that he's served and the places where he's been being merely a backdrop for the person that is Philip. Philip has never been a "look at me and look at the good I'm doing" but rather a "no muss, no fuss" kind of guy that just got on with what he had to do.

I'm really very impressed with the portrait. As time goes by, I think a lot of people will look at it and see that clearly Philip was the father of Charles and the grandfather of Harry as both men resemble Philip quite a bit. Its another example of a clear legacy being passed down through Philip.

I like the portrait- I think it is a very realistic portrayal of Prince Philip at his age. And IMO he would rather be portrayed as he is rather than as some artist's "vision" of him. He seems to be that kind of person.

The portrait was wonderfully done and it shows Prince Philip at his age. That’s the blessed part of the portrait...his age.

I love this portrait, it is simply stunning. He looks his age, and I think that is what we need to see in a portrait sometimes.
The surroundings are beautiful, and they match Philip. I'm really looking forward to seeing the exhibitions if we can as the link to Denmark is intriguing.

I didnt realize this was the same artist that did HMs portrait in WA. Seeing them side by side, it almost looks as if they were made to be companion portraits. I think both are lovely

A Portrait of astonishingly high quality, as to likeness, composition and painting.

A fantastic addition to the Collection, for now and for the future...

Two comments from BRMB:


Posted by Janert
The long corridor back to the room where his mother and grandmother were born is so symbolic of the long journey that has been the Duke's beginnings in life to where he is now, a man in his late 90s.


Posted by Stig
It is hardly a coincidence that the Duke of Edinburgh is depicted in front of a painting by the Danish artist Lauritz Tuxen and a display of Danish 'Flora Danica' dinner service.
