A royal smile.
On Sept. 18, the eve of Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral, an unseen portrait of the late monarch was launched by Buckingham Palace.
Within the photograph, the queen is wearing a lightweight blue costume, along with her hair completely curled, as she smiles brightly for the digital camera. She is pictured carrying her favourite three-strand pearl necklace, pearl earrings and her aquamarine and diamond clip brooches which have been an 18th birthday current from her father King George VI in 1944.
In response to the palace, the portrait was taken earlier this yr to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, as she grew to become the primary British monarch to succeed in the milestone.
Queen Elizabeth handed away on the age of 96 on Sept. 8 at Balmoral Citadel, her trip dwelling in Scotland.
After mendacity in state at Westminster Corridor, the place mourners reportedly waited for miles to pay their respects, the queen’s funeral is scheduled to happen Sept. 19 at 6 a.m. ET / 3 a.m. PT. The day can be a nationwide financial institution vacation for the residents of the UK.
