‘She never struck me as being vain’: royal portrait artists discuss their work with the Queen

The Queen’s image has been captured by countless artists and photographers throughout her life.

We’re joined by two of them: artist Nicky Philipps and photographer Ranald Mackechnie.

Nicky Philipps painted the Queen a number of times, including with her corgis for the Royal Mail to commemorate 60 years on the throne.

Ranald Machechnie took an official photograph of the Queen at Windsor Castle a few months ago for the Platinum Jubilee.
