In this special programme from London, we look back at Queen Elizabeth II’s life as a cultural icon. During her 70-year reign, the late monarch was the subject of countless portraits, photographs and artworks around the world. Artist Nicky Philipps painted the queen’s official portrait three times. She speaks to Eve Jackson about their sittings together, the stories Elizabeth II shared and the moment she had to tell the queen to close her mouth. They also look at the late monarch’s fashion over the decades and the films that tried to satisfy the public’s intrigue into who she really was.
