Scottish WidowER.

Byline: By FIONA JAMES

NOT so much Scottish Widow as Scottish Windsor... here is the Queen in her new official portrait, looking remarkably like the cloaked woman in the famous TV ad

The imposing photograph of the Queen in a long dark cape taken by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz was unveiled yesterday.

The image shows the monarch standing with her arms and hands hidden under the floor-length deep navy blue boat cloak.

The only flash of colour comes from the golden buttons and fastener and the Queen's carefully groomed silver-grey hair.

She has been digitally superimposed against a sombre setting - Buckingham Palace lake with grey skies and dark trees. Leibovitz, known for her work for Rolling Stone magazine, has taken a set of photographs of the sovereign to mark the ongoing royal state visit to America.

Yesterday the Queen joined racegoers at the Kentucky Derby - fulfilling a lifelong dream of attending the world-famous race in Louisville on the third day of her six-day trip.

Thousands of race fans were hoping to catch a glimpse of her but she went straight to the track's Millionaire's Row private rooms.
