ACCLAIMED Glasgow-born photographer Harry Benson has taken a new portrait of the Queen, describing it as "truly a highlight" of his career.

Commissioned by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Benson captured the monarch in the Audience Room at Buckingham Palace, where she usually holds her weekly meeting with the Prime Minister.

The Queen is seen standing near the sheer curtains at the window, wearing a gold and diamond brooch featuring thistles.
