Finally on display: the extraordinary Queen portrait banished for 60 years.


It is a face known throughout the world, but the public will see a different    side of the Queen today as a portrait banished for 61 years goes on display.   
The controversial painting was once banned from Liverpool town hall because it looked nothing like the Queen and her neck was “too long”. Embarrassed council chiefs ordered it to be hidden from public view in the vaults.
