The painting was on display at Buckingham Palace during the summer of 2006, before being returned to the BBC.

Asked about the whereabouts of the portrait now, a BBC spokesman said: "We've been asked about this before and the position hasn't changed. The BBC does not have this painting in its collection."

Harris played a prominent role at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012.
