Duke's portrait shows Britain's queen at breakfast
LONDON (AP) - September 4, 2010 -- Queen Elizabeth II is used to having her portrait painted - though rarely at breakfast, and by her husband.
An image of the British monarch at the breakfast table, painted by Prince Philip in 1965, is being made public as part of a book about royal portraiture.
"The Queen at Breakfast" shows Elizabeth seated at a table in a Windsor Castle dining room, reading a newspaper with a loaf of bread and jam jar in front of her.
The oil painting appears in the new book "The Royal Portrait: Image and Impact," which is published next week.
An image of the painting was released Saturday by the Royal Collection.
The 89-year-old Duke of Edinburgh, well known for his blunt-speaking and love of outdoor sports, is also an art collector and amateur painter.
