Another photograph has been released by Buckingham Palace to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday and it’s a picture of absolute cuteness!
Shot by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz at Windsor Castle just before Easter, the photo shows her Majesty surrounded by her youngest grandchildren and great grandchildren. This picture is also the first one we have seen of the Queen with the youngest member of her family, 11-month-old Princess Charlotte.
Possibly the most adorable part of the snap is the image of Zara Phillips daughter, Mia Tindall, holding her grandmother’s €1,200 Launer handbag, which is has been said, was not planned!
A source told the Daily Mail, “The moment with Mia was completely spontaneous, it was not staged at all. She just picked up her great-granny’s handbag and that was it!”
The photo is one of a number that were shot by Annie Leibovitz to mark the monarch’s milestone birthday, which you can see below:
