The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester visited the Bankside Gallery on Thursday afternoon to see the Royal Watercolour Society's Picturing Britain 2012 exhibition.
The exhibition is a celebration of Britain in 2012, honouring the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and celebrating the sporting endeavour of the Olympic Games.
The Prince of Wales, an honorary member of the Royal Watercolour Society, has loaned three of his own watercolours for the occasion.
"Members of the Royal Watercolour Society have created a dynamic exhibition to capture the celebrations and events of 2012 and as well as the warp and weft of British life," said RWS president Thomas Plunkett.
"Works have been wrought from water based media and the artists' collective imaginations."
