I am obliged to respect my own precedent and to post yet another State Portrait in order to end off another amazing week, if not the best week so far, of blogging. It was really nice to do all the posts but all the hits I got was overwhelmingly nice. Thank you everybody for your interest.
The State Portrait of Her Royal Highness, the Princess Beatrice, Dowager Grand Duchess of Hanoveria. This portrait was released in August 2011, only a few weeks after the Princess was discharged from hospital having beaten cancer. She insisted on having the portrait taken to celebrate the fact that she had been healed. She wears the Emerald Tiara her husband bought her as a wedding present.
