A NEW portrait to mark the Queen's sixty years as patron of the British Red Cross is to be unveiled by Her Majesty.

The artwork painted by Henry Ward depicts the head of state wearing her flowing garter robes as she sits in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.

The Queen is the longest-serving patron of the charity, which supports people in crisis in the UK and overseas.

During the past sixty years, she has supported the organisation by visiting projects and offices and attending and hosting events, such as a Buckingham Palace garden party to celebrate 100 years of the British Red Cross.  Click link for full post from EXPRESS.
