Ralph Heimans paints a portrait of Prince Philip in one of the hallways of Windsor Palace
Prince Philip, the British Queen’s wife, had a painting in Windsor Palace on her retirement and the end of her social activities, a portrait painted by one of the most famous contemporary painters.
The ninety-six-year-old Duke of Edinburgh has said he will end his official duties as the Queen’s wife and step down from the court.
The British Royal Palace had asked Australian-Dutch painter Ralph Heimans to paint a portrait of Prince Philip in one of Windsor Castle’s halls.
Ralph Heimans has worked with the British Royal Palace in the past and has a close relationship with the court, especially the Queen. He is one of the most successful portrait painters who have a unique style in creating his works.
Ralph Heimans paints Prince Philip’s portrait in one of the hallways of Windsor Palace, dressed in formal attire and wearing Denmark’s highest honor.
Appreciating the kindness of the British royal family, the painter expressed hope that Prince Philip would love his portrait, saying that the Duke of Edinburgh had a calm and respectable personality and was a decent human being.
This painting is installed at the end of the palace’s central corridor and next to the patterned curtain room, where Prince Philip’s mother, Princess Alice, was born.
Philip is the son of Andrew, Prince of Greece and Denmark. He met Elizabeth at a wedding when he was a member of the Royal Navy. After a short time, their friendship turned into a romantic relationship, and he finally got married.
Elizabeth was crowned six years after her marriage to Philip. She officially became Queen of Britain.
Last November, they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. Queen Elizabeth and Philip have four children, eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
