A new portrait of the Queen has been commissioned to mark her 90th birthday year.

The full-length portrait was produced by artist Nicky Philipps from a sitting at Windsor Castle earlier this year, and depicts the monarch wearing the robes of The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle.

"It was an enormous privilege to paint this portrait for the Royal Company and I very much hope the Archers feel it is a worthy representation of our monarch," Ms Philipps said.

Company secretary Lieutenant Colonel Richard Callander added: "There has been a long association with each monarch since the formation of the Royal Company, and it is a great honour to have a portrait of Her Majesty to mark her 90th year."
