Ronnie, 74 years oldsaid: “I painted a wonderful picture of the Duke of Edinburgh just before his death, where he was taking off his hat.

“It’s charcoal, pastel pastel brown. I finished it right before he died. I’ll show him.

“I have now been asked by Prince William to show him the painting in the coming weeks and he will show it to the Queen. This is a real honor for me.”

Ronnie describes her Rolling Stones friends Mick Jagger, 78, Keith Richards, 77, and the late Charlie Watts in the picture.

While talking about the piece inspired by Picasso’s 1925 piece called The Three Dancers, Ronnie also paid tribute to Stones drummer Charlie, who passed away from cancer last month. 8 years ago at the age of 80. Ronnie continued: “Charlie is old.

“He’s given our new drummer Steve Jordan’s blessing and it’s been a really great thing from Charlie.

“He said: ‘I won’t be able to join you guys but I won’t take any of your jobs away. I want things to continue. Steve, play for me. ‘ And he certainly did. A new dynamic and a wonderful take on the legend of Charlie. ”

Ronnie also revealed that the group is planning a tour around Europe in the coming months and puts live music on top of their much-anticipated new record.

He said of the album: “It will come slowly. It’s the space in between that always corrodes. It’s a matter of bringing us all together. “Everybody is in a different part of the world.

“So instead of focusing on rushing the album, we’re doing the opposite and taking a lot of time. And we’re putting the live shows first.”

The painting, which Ronnie says is “the third in a trilogy of works on the influence of the Picasso stone”, is on display at Wood Lane in West London until February 14.

And while the debut drew admiration from the crowd that gathered around, Ronnie said his bandmates also blessed their music.

He said: “Now they are used to my paintings and they all like them. I used to show them my paintings at first and they would say, ‘Oh, so happy. Not anyone else.’

“Now they really like them. Mick is naked in all of them. The inspiration was three of Picasso’s dancers. And I thought why not? ”
