Portrait Sketch of Prince Philip 1961


This wonderful portrait of Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh was found on @thewindsorfamily on Instagram. It was drawn from life at Buckingham Palace by Dr. Stephen Ward at a sitting especially granted to The Illustrated London News for their front cover published on June 24, 1961. I think this amateur artist captured his essence perfectly. See all posts by The Windsor Family here.

What a beautiful image...he's almost pretty.

Amazing to be able to draw like that. I would argue with those who say he's an amateur.

Gail, northern California -- Gail, I couldn't agree more. Let's just say he was an unpaid artist who drew for fun.

He was certainly a handsome man, wasn't he? He was blessed to live a very full life. Though it's doubtful his family will ever read this, I hope they find some comfort in that.
