A letter to the Express and Star by D. Winterborn
I am sorry to see the passing away of our late Queen Elizabeth II. Since her demise, I have seen many portraits of her, however not my favourite one, also one which I suspect is most of our citizen’s favourite one. I refer to the one on the old paper money notes, knowm as the ‘D’ design. That portrait was painted by Harry Eccleston OBE who was born on the 21st January 1923 in Coseley here in the Black Country, and died in 2010 aged 87. He had several sittings with her Majesty.
