The Queen at Breakfast by Prince Philip Thimble

HM the Queen has sat for many an artist and her image has been captured on canvas countless times, but rarely quite so informal. Sitting at a beautifully-laid table, reading a paper, with a fresh loaf of bread and a pot of marmalade in front of her - she indulges in a leisurely breakfast. The Duke of Edinburgh is known for his appreciation of fine art, but less well known is his own talent for applying oils to canvas. He painted this image - entitled The Queen at Breakfast, Windsor Castle - back in 1965 - and it has been part of his private collection ever since. Now it features as one of the most surprising images in a new book, The Royal Portrait Image and Impact, published by the Royal Collections. The painting offers an initimate glimpse of the Queen off duty.
