A new portrait of the Queen, entitled 'ICON' has been unveiled by First Minister Carwyn Jones.
The WRU commissioned Cardiff-born artist Dan Llywelyn Hall to paint the piece to go on public display at the Millennium Stadium.
The portrait was produced to mark the 60th anniversary of the coronation.
WRU chief executive Roger Lewis said: "The portrait will have pride of place at the Millennium Stadium and we are very much looking forward to sharing it with the many hundreds of thousands of visitors we attract to the Welsh capital each year."
A new portrait of the Queen is set to be unveiled in Cardiff today. The WRU-commissioned painting has been created by Cardiff-born artist Dan Llywelyn Hall, who has previously produced portraits of First World War veterans Henry Allingham and Harry Patch.
First Minister Carwyn Jones will unveil the portrait, which will be placed on public display in the Millennium Stadium.
Wales international Adam Jones has tweeted to criticise the WRU for banning a referee following a comment made on the social networking site.
Adam Jones said that "maybe If the WRU worried about themselves and the regions sorting their c**p out and not banning a ref for tweeting we may get somewhere!"
Hugh Watkins resigned live on the BBC's Scrum V programme after he was banned for 12 weeks after he questioned the decision by the referee in the Hong Kong Sevens final between Wales and Fiji not to show a red card for a dangerous tackle.
Sorry that's a shocker. Had to be red no other option. We need referees to be consistent in this area.
The group that represents the four Welsh rugby regions has pulled out of talks with the WRU. Speaking at a press conference in Cardiff, Stuart Gallagher from Regional Rugby Wales said that he was embarrassed by the propaganda coming from the WRU.
Gallagher said that they had now decided not to go to talks with the Welsh Rugby Union as 'communication has broken down.'
He said that the body was now looking to take the disagreement with the WRU to independent arbitration.
The Welsh Rugby Union say they are hoping to meet with representatives of the four regions at their next board meeting to diffuse the ongoing rows over the future of the game.
Both the union and the regions have released public statements over the past few days accusing each other of mishandling discussions over who should employ Welsh internationals. A matter neither seem able to agree on.
