Big news has come in this morning about the recent reveal of the royal family's portraits. Today they shared these beautiful photos, and they will be displayed at Buckingham Palace over the summer in celebration of Prince Charles' 70th birthday.
The artwork was of the Queen Mother, Prince Philip, Prince William, and Prince Harry, and it is reported that these photos were from the Prince of Wales' personal art collection.
Included in his collection are preparatory oil sketches of Prince William and Prince Harry. These were created by Nicky Phillipps in 2009. These exquisite photos are displayed on the walls of Highgrove, the private residence of Charles and Camilla.
During the special exhibit called Prince and Patrol, there will be over 100 pieces of artwork on display including the recent sketches of the royal family.
At the exhibit, Charles will also display an oil piece of his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, created by Michael Noakes.
"I acquired it from the artist as I felt it brilliantly captured her likeness and, above all, reminds me of the essence of her personality," Prince Charles says in a specially-recorded message for visitors. "I admire it often when in residence at Clarence House."
His father, Prince Philip, also has a very special pencil sketch created by Bryan Organ in 1983. This painting is hung at the National Portrait Gallery.
The event opening will be conducted at Buckingham Palance from July 21 to September 30. Tickets can be purchased here at the Royal Collection Trust.
