It is a very, very, very good portrait of the Queen, very likeable indeed. I initially thought it was an Annie Libovitz shot. Whether it was made on film or digital is of no real consequence. I'm not a fan of royalty (there's a couple of them wandering around Australia all-expenses-paid at the moment) but the portrait has many qualities that easily speak of a photographer fully at ease with his subject, but also able to communicate with her to achieve an end. Annie Libovitz is another who is able to get that rarely-seen fun element to come from the Queen.
