Yesterday, the Queen met with Boris Johnson at Windsor Castle, for her first in-person weekly meeting since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, after communicating remotely with the Prime Minister for over a year now.

Naturally, a photographer was on hand to capture the momentous event and the official snaps have revealed more sweet snippets from Her Majesty's family life than we bargained for.

The 95-year-old monarch wore a crisp lilac outfit with a satin bow for the occasion and seemed to be all smiles as she chatted at a distance with the Prime Minister, but it was the family photographs on the tables behind the pair, that really caught our eye.

On the main table in view, we can see a sweet snap of a young Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, posing with their arms around each other for a formal portrait to celebrate their engagement in 2010, back when they were simply (Prince) William and Kate.

Also on the same table, is a photograph of the Queen sitting on a chair, while her much-beloved late husband Prince Philip stands, looking fondly down at her. Then on a nearby table, we can just about make out a picture of another of the Queen's grandchildren: Prince Harry — posing with his wife Meghan Markle, who has her hand placed on her husband's chest.

It's heartwarming to see that, despite a very tumultuous and distressing year for the Queen — which included the tragic loss of her husband of 73 years back in April and the royal family's involvement in an alleged racism scandal following Harry and Meghan's tell-all Oprah interview in March — she is still firmly putting family first and determined to present a united front.

It's also great to see Her Majesty beaming once again, back at work and carrying out her solo duties.
