J.K. Rowling: It was deliberate. Snape had effectively abandoned his post before dying, so he had not merited inclusion in these august circles. However, I like to think that Harry would be instrumental in ensuring that Snape's portrait would appear there in due course.
I hope that helps.
This is pretty confusing isn't it? I had always thought that Hogwarts would automatically put up the portrait of the last Headmaster and Umbridge did not get a portrait, because she could not even access the Headmaster's office and so Hogwarts did not agree that Umbridge had even been headmistress of Hogwarts.

But it looks like someone can talk for you. With whom and how would that portrait have come up?

I do see why DD might have not been keen on sharing this,but then again,his trust wasnt so much as he so repreatedly said,he didnt trust his great occlumens abilities!!
I agree. Dumbledore for saying he implicitly trusted Snape time and agin did not tell him about the horcruxes and about the wand. I realy think that Snape was allowed to die by Dumbledore.

The man who, in my opinion, won the war against Voldemort for Harry Potter and the Light! Severus Snape!
