Did they lock Lucian Freud in The Tower for this portrait, or just cut to the chase and behead him? Liz must have properly hated it. He so captured that Germanic/Simian nose-to-upper lip that is unique to females of the house of Windsor. Wonder what the atmosphere was like in the studio. She doesn't look like she's in a mood for a banter. He should have at least persuaded her to have a shave.

Stubbs out.
