Queen’s new por­trait fea­tures Prince Charles as guest star

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

One is not amused. But the other one is. Queen El­iz­a­beth II’s pho­to­graphic por­trait un­veiled Sun­day fea­tures a de­ter­mined look ahead and per­haps the faintest whis­per of a Mona Lisa smile. The heir to her throne, Prince Charles, stands be­side his seated mother, one hand propped in the pocket of his black din­ner jacket, the other be­hind her back. Charles’ down­ward gaze of smil­ing af­fec­tion com­petes for at­ten­tion with the queen’s se­ri­ous, for­ward fo­cus.

Fash­ion pho­tog­ra­pher Nick Knight shot the im­age in May inside Wind­sor Cas­tle be­fore evening cel­e­bra­tions at the Royal Wind­sor Horse Show. The queen wore a sea green and dove gray bro­cade dress by An­gela Kelly. Knight said he sought “to cre­ate a modern por­trait that showed warmth and hu­man­ity as well as strength and tra­di­tion.”
