The Queen has been painted by artists throughout her reign, but the latest portrait features one unusual item - the monarch's handbag. Award-winning artist Ben Sullivan included the accessory in a new portrait of the Queen to help show the person behind the head of state. The Queen is rarely seen without her handbag - usually a black patent design by Launer - and in the painting, commissioned by the RAF Club to mark its centenary, she is shown sat in an ornate chair in Windsor Castle.
