Malaysia is unique because she is the only nation in this world which has a five years rotation system in her Kingship. Nazri had recorded all the Royal portraits for the county's historical archive. Not many have the chance to see these paintings as they are hung and kept in various palaces.

In addition to the Royal Selangor portraits commissioned he also had painted 14 portraits of DYMM YDP Agong from first to present plus two portraits of Permaisuri Agong, for Istana Melawati, Putrajaya. In mid 2005 he managed to deliver all the portraits commissioned on time.
