New Queen's Portrait
The National Portrait Gallery in London has unveiled a new portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, painted by Isobel Peachey, who won the BP Travel Award 2009 (CLICK). At 31, Isobel is the youngest woman to have painted an official portrait of the Queen. The work was commissioned by Cunard, whose latest luxury cruise liner will be named Queen Elizabeth at Southampton on 11 October. The painting will be on display in the ship's Grand Lobby, where the Queen will view it for the first time. There's confidence!
