Queen Elizabeth unveils new painting of herself as crowd erupts with joy.


Her Majesty, has never given-up on her royal duties. Even after being at the age of 92 years, she is attending all her public engagements and is following all her duties.

In fact, Queen Elizabeth was seen recently attending an event.

The Queen has marked 100 years of the Royal Air Force Club by unveiling a new painting of herself. As the red curtain started to pull back there was a moment of silence from the gathered crowd. 

And then, they suddenly erupted in gasps and cheers as they saw Her Majesty’s likeness in all it’s glory.

The 92-year-old reigning monarch looked pleased with the outcome too. 

It was painted in the White Drawing Room of Windsor Castle by prize-winning painter, Benjamin Sullivan and was commissioned for the occasion.

In addition to the unveiling of the painting, Queen Elizabeth also opened a new wing in the club. She was then shown a stained glass window feature by Jo Salter. Jo is Great Britain’s first female fast jet pilot.

Another milestone reached.

The window was designed by a woman, Helen Whittaker. It was to commemorates the role of women in the Royal Air Force over the past 100 years.

Her Majesty also signed the visitors book. It was something her grandfather, King George V has done previously. Removing just one of her black gloves to allow her to hold the pen and write her name, the monarch showed of her famous nude-coloured manicure.

It’s understood that the Queen has been wearing the same nail polish colour since the 80’s. Her nail polish colour is ‘Essie’s Ballet Slippers’.

Her Majesty, who was dressed in a bright blue coat dress and matching hat, popped her missing glove back on. Then she spent some time mingling with the guests at the event marking the Club’s centenary.
