Last week saw the unveiling of a new portrait of Her Majesty The Queen at the Scottish Parliament. The official portrait was taken by Shaun Murawski, who was chosen from a shortlist of young photographers by a panel of judges.

Commenting on the portrait Margaret said:

‘I am pleased that the Scottish Parliament now hangs a portrait of HM The Queen, Scotland’s Head of State, in the building. The Queen has always supported and been a warm friend to the Scottish Parliament since it was established in 1999. This portrait is a fitting tribute to that relationship and shows the Scottish Parliament’s appreciation for her continued support. The portrait itself is stunning and showcases Shaun Murawski’s excellent photography skills. I think that having a competition to choose a young photographer living in Scotland to photograph Her Majesty The Queen was an wonderful idea and one that clearly has worked well. It really is an outstanding portrait of the Queen and it will hang proudly in the Main Hall of the Scottish Parliament for visitors, guests and staff to see for years to come.’

Margaret expressed her support for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month by signing The Pledge for Prostate Cancer last week. Prostate Cancer Awareness Month runs from 1 – 31 March and is an annual health awareness campaign organised by The Prostate Cancer Charity. The theme of the month is a celebration of awareness and The Prostate Cancer Charity Scotland is mobilising people and urging them to ‘declare they are aware’.
