The Royal Collection has just purchased an image of The Queen, created by pop-artist Andy Warhol.

A pair of royal portraits were reunited for the first time in more than quarter of a century in a 2012 exhibition about the Queen.

The works by Italian portrait painter Pietro Annigoni went on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

It was the first time in 28 years his portrait of the Queen from 1954-5 had gone on public display.
