In commemoration of Queen Elizabeth’s 97th birthday, Prince and Princes of Wales share an exclusive picture
The official account of the Prince and Princess of Wales has shared on April 21, the day on which Queen Elizabeth II would have turned 97 years old, an unpublished photo.
In it they wanted to remember the monarch in a photo never seen before and that has touched the hearts of the public.
The photo is an image taken by the Princess of Wales last summer at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
In the photograph, Queen Elizabeth is seated on a green sofa and surrounded by several of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, including Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Also pictured are Prince Edward’s children, James, Earl of Wessex, and Lady Louise Windsor, as well as Princess Anne’s grandchildren, who do not have royal titles – Savannah Phillips, Isla Phillips, Mia Tindall, Lena Tindall and Lucas Tindall.
This publication comes just weeks before what will be the historic coronation ceremony of King Charles III on May 6.
Last month, the King paid tribute to his late mother with another image of remembrance on his first Mother’s Day in the UK without her.
The post included a photo of the monarch as a child standing on Queen Elizabeth’s lap as they smile at the camera.
