A new royal portrait of Queen Elizabeth has been unveiled and it's very impressive
It's a stunning work of art.
If you hadn't already guessed, we're big fans of keeping up to date with the royal family. The latest news surrounding the royals has just emerged and it's a stunning new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
The portrait of the ninety-two-year-old head of the Monarch was painted artist Nicky Philipps and features Her Majesty wearing traditional dark green velvet ceremonial robes and an Order of the Thistle collar, the most ancient and noble order of chivalry associated with Scottland.
The stunning new oil painting was unveiled yesterday.

The elegant cloak also features the order's star that includes the motto, "No one harms me with impunity." The Queen appears to be wearing a white dress underneath and also a pair of pearl earrings.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the portrait was hung in the Royal Dining Room at Holyrood House in Edinburgh, Scotland, the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland.
The publication stated that Queen Elizabeth wore that same robes during her trip to Scotland with Prince William in July. The pair attended the annual Order of the Thistle Service at St. Giles' Cathedral.
The Queen has had many portraits of herself painted, a lot of which were done by Pietro Annigoni. In 1955 he painted her for the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers and in 1969 for the National Portrait Gallery.
We think the latest one is stunning.
