The royal family have celebrated Easter weekend by sharing two new portraits of the Queen and Prince Charles.
The pictures were taken in the grounds of Frogmore House in Windsor. The Queen has been living at Windsor Castle for the majority of the past year, rather than her usual primary residence of Buckingham Palace in London, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The two portraits were taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson and show the mother and son enjoying a walk together through the beautiful gardens, surrounded by flowers and blossom. The pair are wrapped up in warming coats, while the Queen also wears a floral headscarf.
In one of the pictures, the pair can be seen laughing, standing in front of a bridge which goes over a pond.
One of the images was shared via the official royal family Instagram account, while the other was shared on the Clarence House Instagram page - the account dedicated to the life, work and activities of Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
"Standing in the Home Park of Windsor Castle, the gardens at Frogmore House have been an enduring attraction for monarchs and their families since the house was purchased by Queen Charlotte in 1790," reads the Royal Collection Trust website. The house and gardens will next open to visitors in 2022.
The Queen Mother was very fond of the house, having spent part of her honeymoon there in 1923. She also enjoyed having picnics in the grounds - a tradition which is continued by the royal family today.
Frogmore House is no longer occupied by the royal family, but is often used for entertaining. Most recently, Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, held their wedding reception at the impressive venue, in May 2018. Before leaving for America, the couple lived at Frogmore Cottage, also on the Frogmore estate.
