The portrait, by Australian born artist Ralph Heimans, has been produced for display at the @NHM_Denmark at Frederiksborg Castle in Denmark. The Museum is holding a retrospective exhibition of Mr Heimans' work in 2018.

Part of the exhibition explores the historical connections between the Royal Families of Great Britain & Denmark. The portrait is set at Windsor Castle and The Duke of Edinburgh is depicted wearing the sash of the Order of the Elephant, Denmark's highest-ranking honour.

Windsor Castle holds special significance in regard to The Duke of Edinburgh's ancestry. At the end of the Grand Corridor is the Tapestry Room where His Royal Highness' mother, Princess Alice, and maternal grandmother, Princess Victoria were born.

I think great royal portraits show the person in their role without being maudlin, overly positive or negative.

I love this portrait. The execution is wonderful; every now and then it's good to see perspective and the use of light/dark are alive and well in modern painting.

The composition is genius - just a bit off center as is his roguish smile.

It made me think of that old chestnut where it was claimed he trained the family to do that hands behind the back thing to cut down on fatigue during long days of engagements.

This will be how I want to remember him when the time comes.

Mr. Heimans lets us see the Duke of Edinburgh perfectly. A magnificent portrait.

Lovely Photo! It's from Chris Jackson, who is overall my fav royal photographer. He so often gets the color right and is always spot on in composition. Digital photography has so improved the royal watcher game!

This portrait has been done to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of Australia House in London - our first overseas diplomatic mission. George V laid the foundation stone (well he unveiled the plaque on the stone) in 1913. Charles is attending the celebrations today and unveiling a commemorative plaque to the 100 years of the building. He is with the Australian High Commissioner to London.

Sunrise (Channel 7 morning show) has been showing clips of Charles and Camilla's arrival and the unveiling of the portrait, and then the reception. They are also celebrating his 70th birthday. In the speech he referred to Harry and Meghan's baby's name by suggesting 'Kylie' or 'Shane' may make the 'shortlist' but not 'Edna' or 'Les'. Of course these are names associated with TV characters from Aussie TV shows or Dame Edna Everage's character.
