Scope and content

Colchester, Essex. Richard Stone, a Colchester postman's son, executed this painting of Princess Margaret, destined for the Royal Anglians Meanee Barracks, in Colchester. The Princess made Mr Stone change the painting because she thought she looked too severe, so changed the expression to "a sort of half smile", and the Princess was delighted with the result. Mr Stone (30) painted the Queen Mother in 1973, and is currently working on an official drawing of Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester, to mark her 80th birthday on Christmas Day
