Hmm. Love a good portrait or two, but I’m not sure about the latest likeness of the Queen from Rupert Alexander.
I mean, I love the understated tone of the painting, the simple colour, and unadorned features, but the poor Queen’s complexion looks a little lumpy to me. A little too reminiscent, in fact, of the white sauce I made for my tuna bake dinner last night – damn those lumps!!
Wouldn’t be surprised if QEII was saying exactly the same thing…
No one can argue that Princess Caroline is the embodiment of grace and style in the fashion stakes, and she shows the very same qualities in her dignified stance on the marriage issue – class all the way.
Meanwhile, Ernst publicly indulges in a tropical lovefest. Tsk, tsk…..As my mother used to say – what the hanover was he thinking? Not very much, it seems.
And finally, Wow! is pretty much all I can say on reading of Beatrice’s marathon efforts.
Now there’s a female royal role model!
