Brazilian painter Romero Britto painted a portrait in honor of Queen Elizabeth II and unveiled the painting to her grandson Prince Harry.

The painting will be featured during her Diamond Jubilee this summer, which is the international celebration marking the 60th anniversary of the queen's reign.

Prince Harry invited Britto to a private polo match, a luncheon and a dinner, where he unveiled the painting.

Britto spent one year on the work. He used his signature style of bold colors and patterns combined with Pop art.

Britto has also painted the portraits of the King and Queen of Sweden, Prince Albert and Charlene, as well as Princess Diana and many others.

The artwork will fly across the pond in June.
