The second portrait is a rare and surprisingly warm shot of the Queen with her daughter Princess Anne in the Palace's White Drawing Room

Smiling on the steps of Windsor Castle, Queen Elizabeth II looks truly comfortable in the company of her four-legged and loyal companions

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

Prince George looks adorable dressed in a patriotic red, white and blue ensemble. Wearing burgundy shorts teamed with a navy fairisle cardigan, Prince George’s traditional look is completed with long socks and his beloved Startrite sandals.

(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.
