Jonathan Yeo’s portrait of Charles III review – a formulaic bit of facile flattery

It's hard to be objective about an artist you like as a person

Yeo's portrait of the king is replete with all his vices

There's no insight into the king's personality here, just a weird allegory

To me, this is an evasion of actual portraiture

Royalists are never going to want portraits that look at their idols too astutely
