The children are, from bottom left: Mia Tindall (holding The Queen’s handbag), the two year old daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall; James, Viscount Severn (aged 8) and Lady Louise (12), the children of The Earl and Countess of Wessex and the youngest of The Queen’s eight grandchildren; Savannah (5) and Isla Phillips (3), daughters of The Queen’s eldest grandson Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn; Prince George (2) and, in The Queen’s arms and in the tradition of Royal portraiture, the youngest great-grandchild, Princess Charlotte (11months), children of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The Queen is celebrating her 90th birthday today with her family at Windsor Castle, but is also planning a bit of a walkabout so the British public can join in the festivities.

To mark the occasion, The British Monarchy  released a series of official photographs taken by the renowned portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz at Windsor Castle just after Easter.

And the fun doesn’t end after today.

Throughout the months of April, May and through to the Queen’s second birthday in June, there are going to be loads of street parties, parades and royal tours all over Britain.
