Today Prince Philip, , a great European, a great man, the Queen’s ‘strength and stay’, died age 99.
My sincere sympathy goes to the family and friends.
I have changed my title picture on my Facebook page (this splendid painting is for sale via my website) in honour of the passing of a great man.
Painted from direct observation on location, an event that happened, this painting shows (the figure in red at the helm) Britain’s Prince Philip winning a race at Cowes Week.
A glance at Debretts or even Wikapedia
shows us we have lost a very active and great man.
Noted for his support for wildlife, he had among may achievements served with bravery in the Royal Navy throughout the Second World War : principally in the Mediterranean theatre.
