Palace releases glowing new portrait of Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth
The Royals have released a portrait for the long-reigning Queen.

The Queen has sat for dozens of portraits throughout her life, but her latest has to be one of the best yet.

The Royal Palace released the new image to mark Canada Day.

The Queen is surrounded by lavish gold in the photo and is wearing a gorgeous gold dress to match.

She is also sporting a family broach that was given to her mother by her father King George VI when the couple visited Canada in 1939 at the beginning of his reign.
