Queen Elizabeth II's New Portrait by Nicky Philipps
Here is the new portrait of Her Majesty The Queen by Nicola Jane (Nicky) Philipps. This was commissioned by the Royal Company of Archers on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th Birthday. In the painting, the Queen is wearing the robes of the Order of the Thistle while standing on top of the staircase of the Archer's Hall. Featured in the portrait, too, is the bust of Sir Walter Scott, who, helped the Royal Company play a ceremonial role for the Scottish visit of King George IV in 1822.
