This exhibition of 12 portraits of D-Day veterans was inspired and commissioned by HRH The Duke of Rothesay following his attendance at the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy in 2014.  The profoundly moving images pay tribute to some of the extraordinary men who took part in the Allied invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944.  The 12 veterans are shown wearing their medals and in some instances their regimental berets.  All of them served in regiments with which The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay have a formal affiliation.  Each portrait has been created by a different artist from the Royal Drawing School, among them Jonathan Yeo, James Lloyd, Ishbel Myerscough and Stuart Pearson Wright.
