Duke's portrait shows Britain's queen at breakfast

LONDON (AP) - September 4, 2010

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.
