A new painting of the head of the Royal Family, Queen Elizabeth II, has been unveiled and it is the true definition of regal.

The oil painting was created by artist Nicky Phillips and will be put on display at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, the Queen's official residence in Scotland.

As reported the Express, the painting depicts the monarch wearing the ceremonial robe, as well as the collar, of the Order of the Thistle.

"Painting the monarch was 'nerve-wracking' but also quite fun and a true honor."

Queen Elizabeth can be seen standing tall in her dark green robes, which she wore in real life for the annual Order of the Thistle service that took place back in July.

THE ORDER OF THE THISTLE

At the time, her grandson, and the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, along with her daughter, Princess Anne, also took part in the ceremony wearing the traditional garb.

The only difference between the ensemble worn by the monarch at the ceremony and the one in the painting is the hat; the traditional feathered black velvet hat was not included in the art piece and the reason why is yet to be revealed.

AN OVERWHELMING PRESSURE

For the background, Philipps chose the dark grey skies of Scotland behind the cliffs of Salisbury Crags, which are located near the Queen's Scottish residence.

According to the artist, who previously painted both of Princess Diana's children, painting the monarch was 'nerve-wracking' but also quite fun and a true honor.

DUCHESS VS DUCHESS

But aside from the Queen, the public's eyes have recently been turned to Duchesses Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle and the rumored bad blood between them.

Ever since Harry and Meghan announced that they were going to move out of Kensington Palace, several theories have been advanced regarding the reason behind the decision.

But on Wednesday, November 28, Kate seemed to put an end to those rumors. While meeting a few fans in Leicester, the Duchess of Cambridge was asked how she felt about Meghan's baby and Kate shared that she was eager to meet her future niece or nephew.

Plus, Kate added that the arrival of the new royal baby would also be good for her children - Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte - because they would have someone to play with.
