Britain's Prince Philip was "quite nice" about a new portrait of himself.
Jemma Phipps - who has previously painted both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles - was delighted when the Duke of Edinburgh gave feedback about the picture, which portrays him in his role as the Colonel in Chief of the Queen's Royal Hussars.
She said: "He was quite nice about it. He said, 'They should be pleased with that.' It was lovely to get some kind of comment."
Philip sat for four one-hour sittings for the artist, and Jemma reveals he had a "good sense of humour" while taking part.
She said: "It was really fun. I hope it shows his strong sense of duty. He also has a good sense of humour and can tell a good anecdote - he kept me on my toes.
"He was as still as anything and so professional. He didn't move at all, which is quite a feat seeing as he is 90. Most of my sitters would probably complain, but he didn't."
The painting will be displayed at the Mall Galleries in London from May 3 to 18.
