The Royal Household Release Royal Portraits by British Photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas
Queen Elizabeth II poses for a portrait taken by British photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas with a technique that involves the use of a mirror to show each sitter from all four sides (front, back and both profiles) on May 01, 2013. The Queen is wearing a day dress designed by Ms Angela Kelly, LVO, who has served as Personal Assistant and Senior Dresser to The Queen since 2002. Her Majesty is wearing the Waterloo badge of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and the portrait was taken to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's Colonelship of the Regiment. The pictures form part of an exhibition which will open later this month at Eleven Fine Art, in Pimlico, London, which features other pictures taken of individuals with Royal Appointments.
