New Queen Portrait

One of the most boring aspects of being Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (2012) must be unveiling bad portraits of oneself and trying to think of pleasant things to say about them. What to say about the latest one, unveiled at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday? You don't want to upset Canadian PM Stephen Harper, clapping politely at the unveiling. His government commissioned the damned thing. "Er ... what a big one, Phil" (CLICK). Canadian artist Phil Richards might be good at painting the interiors of palaces, but his Diamond Jubilee portrait of Her Majesty leaves a lot to be desired.

He has made The Queen look fuzzy. The palace looks ok but Her Majesty looks odd. The hologram of our beloved monarch looked a lot better.

I agree. That hologram is briliant.
