Queen Elizabeth and Princess Charlotte looked like twins during a pictorial on March 28 for the 90th birthday of England’s matriarch on Thursday.
In the portrait taken by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz in the Green Drawing Room of Windsor Castle, as shared by People, the 11-month-old daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton seemed to be the spitting image of her great grandmother.
With their matching pink tops and blue eyes, the entertainment site noted that they create “a strong bid for royal twinning,” especially that the second child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was sitting on the lap of the Queen with all smiles while holding a toy horse.
According to a source from the palace, the pictorial was a “lovely jolly affair.”
“It was very relaxed,” the source further described the activity of the royal family.
Additionally, the palace insider relayed that the portrait of Queen Elizabeth with the youngest members of the royal family, which was released on Wednesday, had no “particular logic” when it comes to just featuring the seven youngsters.
“It was felt to have just the younger ones,” the source pointed out.
In the meantime, Sky News reported that Princess Charlotte was sitting on the Queen’s lap since it has been the royal family’s tradition in portraiture to hold the youngest addition to the family.
The said portrait was one of the three new photos release by the Buckingham Palace.
Meanwhile, it was disclosed that standing beside the mother of Prince Charles was two-year-old Prince George and Zara Philip’s daughter Mia Tindall holding the Queen’s famous black handbag.
Apart from the said photo with her five great-grandchildren and two youngest grandchildren, there was also a shot that showed the royal matriarch with her two corgis Willow and Holly and “dorgis” Candy and Vulcan.
The last photograph, in the meantime, featured an “affectionate moment” of Queen Elizabeth and her only daughter Princess Anne.
