I like the painting of Prince Charles. Honestly, the portrait of HM I don't find that flattering and the one of the Duke of Edinburgh looks a bit unfamiliar to me.

SHRIEKKKK!! The Queen looks like she just finished a horror movie. Charles isn't bad, not sure what to think of the D of E.

I like the Prince Charles one and the Duke is sort of like him but the Queen - yes I can recognise that it is her but what with the blobby face? It doesn't look smooth at all but as if she has bumps all over it.

Obviously the man has talent though Russo wonders if he allows his subjects to ever smile??

I rather like his portrait of HM. It shows the woman underneath the finery and regalia. Because while the Queen is a Queen, she's also just a woman.

Actually I like this new portrait of the Queen. She looks like a very sophisticated older woman that has a wise look in her eyes. All of which is truly her. I also like that, if you did not know who it was, you would never know it was the queen because of the lack of elegant clothing. There are enough of her all done up in her royal garb. This is a true portrait without any distractions.

I like Prince Charles' portrait a lot. Not so sure about the rest.

The portrait of the Queen is very good, but if it weren't for the captions in the article I would have mistaken the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Charles for someone else!

The portraits on Royal Insight blog are great, the one of TQM with her little daughters is really touching and sweet.
