Taken by renowned American photographer Annie Leibovitz at Windsor Castle last month, these remarkable pictures have been released to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday today. The first (pictured) shows Her Majesty surrounded by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren
Queen Elizabeth II wanted a portrait of the youngest members of the family - her two youngest grandchildren, who are quite a lot younger than the others, and the great-grandchildren. Pictured left to right: James, Viscount Severn, Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor, Mia Tindall, the Queen, Princess Charlotte, Savannah Phillips, Prince George and Isla Phillips
(front L) Cheeky little Mia Tindall can be seen proudly holding up her great-granny’s Launer handbag in a moment, says one who was there, that was totally unscripted. ‘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,’ they said.
