The Queen Poses With Her Male Heirs As Royal Family Welcome A New Decade

Buckingham Palace has issued a new photographic portrait of Queen Elizabeth, her son Prince Charles, her grandson Prince William and her great-grandson Prince George to mark the start of a new decade.

This is only the second time a portrait of the queen and the three future monarchs has been released, according to the palace.

In the photograph, the queen is wearing a white dress and has a black handbag on her arm. Prince Charles and Prince William are dressed in suits, while Prince George is wearing a white shirt and green tartan trousers.

The portrait was taken by the photographer Ranald Mackechnie in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace last month.
