Exceptionally attractive 1957 portrait of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip

Wonderful vintage matte-finish 7.25 x 9.5 portrait of the royal couple, which depicts the queen seated and wearing a strapless dress with the Riband and Star of the Order of the Garter and the Diamond Diadem crown, and Prince Philip standing at her side and wearing his Admiral of the Fleet uniform, signed on the original studio mount in fountain pen, "Elizabeth R., 1957" and "Philip." Matted and framed to an overall size of 13 x 16.75. In fine condition, with the signatures a couple of shades light. Accompanied by a letter of provenance: "This photo was given to me as a gift in 2012 by my mother in law Mariannic Guerin who lives in Versailles, France and who had received it as a present from a close friend. Her friend is the daughter of a Brazilian Ambassador who had been given the picture in his official capacity on the occasion of the royal visit in the 1950s." A particularly desirable official royal photograph—Queen Elizabeth has perhaps never looked more radiant, nor has Prince Philip appeared quite so handsome.
