The artist behind one of the late Princess Diana's favourite portraits has created an updated version which shows what she might look like today.

Israel Zohar told the Daily Mail he had been asked to paint a portrait of the 13th/18th Royal Hussars colonel in chief to hang at its headquarters.

Mr Zohar said he was surprised when he discovered he would be painting Diana, as he was expecting to paint a man.

"I didn't want to make her look too old because I don't think she would have aged that much," he said.

The artist painted Diana as a 52-year-old grandmother to His Royal Highness Prince George based on the portrait of Diana he painted in 1990.

Diana is pictured wearing a Victor Edelstein gown, which sold for NZ$981.96 in 2011.
