After a recent health-scare, it seems the Queen is back to business as usual, carrying out an official engagement at her Windsor Castle home this week. But the meeting itself isn't quite what caught the attention of royal fans, rather the sweet, unseen photo of her great-grandchildren that sits on the table in her living room.
The heartwarming photo was spotted during Her Majesty's meeting with concert organist, Thomas Trotter, whom she was awarding the Queen's Medal for Music Award. The annual award is presented to a musician who has had a major influence on the life of the public. But, a framed photo of the the Monarch's great-grandchildren, which was sitting behind the pair next to the Queen's iconic handbag, stole the limelight somewhat.
Zooming in on the photo, we can see the Queen herself sitting beside her late husband, Prince Philip. On Her Majesty's lap, sits her great-granddaughter Princess Charlotte, while her older brother Prince George stands behind them. At the other end of the sofa, the Duke of Edinburgh sits beside Mike and Zara Tindall's eldest daughter, Mia. Standing next to Prince Philip is Peter and Autumn Phillips' eldest daughter, Savannah, while her younger sister Isla sits on the opposite side. Prince Louis and Lena Tindall aren't in the image, suggesting that it was taken before 2018.
Another photo of the Queen and her grandchildren was also on display. The image, which was shared on Instagram earlier this year ahead of the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral in April, was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge in Balmoral in 2018 and features Prince Louis and Lena as babies.
"The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh surrounded by seven of their great-grandchildren at Balmoral Castle in 2018," read the caption. The photo clearly went down a royal treat with fans, quickly racking up over a million likes.
Since the photo was taken, Her Majesty has welcomed a further five great-grandchildren: the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's children, Archie and Lilibet; Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's son, August; Mike and Zara's son, Lucas; and Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's daughter, Sienna. Yep, it's been a busy few years when it comes to royal babies.
We wonder how many more great-grandchildren the Queen can expect over the coming years...
