Buckingham Palace has now released a stunning mother-and-son photo of the Queen and Prince Charles.

Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 April this year and the special occasion was marked with huge celebrations throughout her realm. But as the year of Queen Elizabeth II‘s big birthday draws to a close, he milestone is being honoured one final time. A new photograph of the Queen and Prince Charles was released by the British Monarchy on Saturday — taken specifically to commemorate her birthday, reports People.

The portrait, which was taken by photographer Nick Knight, features the Queen siting on a luxurious gold chair, wearing a blur floral patterned, long-sleeve dress. Her hands folded on her lap and she looked elegant and stoic. The queen’s three-strand pearl necklace and matching earrings slightly catch the light in the beautiful image.

Charles looked handsome in a classic bow tie and tuxedo, standing above his mother to her right. His right arm sits in his pocket and his left on rests on the back of her chair as he looks down below on her. It’s definitely the softest expression the prince has even been photographed with when with his royal mother.

The photo, shot in May, was staged at the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle — prior to the final night of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations at the Royal Windsor Horse Pageant. It was released Sunday on the royal families social media accounts.

What do you think of this photo?

    It is not a nice photo of our Queen

    • M Taylor  

      She is prettier than in this photo but she is an old lady and cannot always look her best.

  2. Carole  

    Nice one of Charles though, looks so like his father. Hand in pocket, not quite the done thing methinks?

  3. Morgan Hynam-Smith  

    Perhaps he is saying if I tickled you would you smile?

    • I think they’ve shared a private joke & the Queen is trying not to laugh. She has a wicked sense of humour.

    Nice photo but what a dick he is and looks just like his father. Do hope they jump a generation when the Queen passes on and William and Kate come to the Throne

    • Grant Thomas  

      yeah…BUT that would ruin our chances in Oz to become a Republic because the public LOVE Will & Kate…

    • Patricia Maxfield  

      If you can’t say anything…say nothing at alll….

    Lovely but the Queen looks a little tired

    • Tara Anderson  

      She is still working at 90. Anyone would look tired.

  6. Margaret  

    Very ordinary photo – the Queen doesn’t look relaxed or happy and the prince looks very posed. Not sure what the photographer was trying to achieve…

    • Suzanne Joy  

      I agree dreadful photo of queen he (Charlie Dick )is standing over her very offensively with hand in pocket.

    a smile goes a long way, wish the Queen learnt to smile in her important photos

  8. Gillian  

    A beautiful photograph. The dizzy dress was not a great choice though. The look of love, I guess,on Charles’s face was delightful.

  9. Jillian Flowers  

    If they are going to do the casual look with Charles looking at his mother (nice touch) then she should have been looking at him. Not a good photo.

    • Adeline  

      His Mother is the Queen.
      As such, ‘cutesy’ photo’s aren’t done by her!
      You obviously are very ignorant of Royal Protocol!

    No time for Charles, lost any respect I would have had.
