More than 100 pieces of art will be on display, including this oil sketch of Prince Harry and Prince William. The National Portrait Gallery commissioned Nicky Phillips to paint this particular piece in 2009.

Another notable piece that will be on display is a group study painting marking the Silver Wedding Anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh in 1972. Michael Noakes was responsible for this creative portrait.


While announcing the inclusion of this particular portrait to the media, the Prince of Wales shared a warm speech about his late grandmother.

I acquired it from the artist as I felt it brilliantly captured her likeness, and above all reminds me of the essence of my Grandmother’s personality.

Prince Charles enjoyed a warm relationship with The Queen Mother, and having her portrait on display is indeed a tribute to her and a reminder of the love he has for her. He confessed that he often stopped to admire the portrait.


The exhibition will be open to the public at Buckingham Palace from July 21 to September 30. Visitors to the palace will also have access to 19 state rooms and be able to take a walk in the stunning palace gardens as well.

Many fans of the royal family have been sharing their thoughts about Prince Charles’ speech and his comments about the Queen Mother.

They are also looking forward to exploring the palace as the doors will be open later this month. Who knows, they may even catch a glimpse of the prince or have a one-on-one with him.
