The Queen accidentally reveals RARE photo of grandchildren – and they are ADORABLE
THE QUEEN has unknowingly revealed a never-before-seen family picture featuring Prince George, Princess Charlotte and her husband Prince Philip, displayed at Windsor castle.
Last Friday, Her Majesty viewed a portrait of herself at Windsor Castle – accidentally revealing a sweet portrait of her great-grandchildren, which was displayed in the background.
The photo, placed in a silver frame, shows the Queen, Prince Philip, Princess Charlotte, Prince George, and their cousins Isla Phillips, Savannah Phillips, and Mia Tindall together as they posed for a picture.
In the heartwarming photo, Charlotte is seated on the Queen’s laps while George takes the spotlight, sitting in between his great-grandparents.
Meanwhile Isla stood beside the Queen while Savannah positioned herself beside her great-grandfather, Prince Philip, while young Mia stood behind George.
Savannah and Isla are the children of Peter and Autumn Phillips, while Mia is the daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall.
In the photo, the royal children look considerably younger – meaning the picture was possibly taken a couple of years ago.
The Queen’s adorable great-grandchildren are often seen together during big royal events, and are known to have a couple of cheeky antics up their sleeves.
During Princess Eugenie’s wedding, older cousin Savannah Philips took the lead, grabbing George and Charlotte’s hand as the group awaited their turn to walk down the aisle.
Savannah, 7, and George, 4, stole the show when she jokingly played a trumpet in the air, sending George into hysterics.
George then quickly placed his hand on his mouth, in an attempt to cover up his laughter.
Savannah and George are known to steal the show at royal events, and could not contain their excitement at this year’s Trooping the Colour in June.
The royal family stood on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch the flypast by the Royal Air Force, and the young children were ecstatic to see the planes fly by.
In an iconic moment, Savannah tried to keep George quiet by placing her hand on his mouth.
The Queen keeps many family portraits around her royal residences, including previously unseen wedding photo of granddaughter Zara and her husband Mike.
On Friday, Her Majesty viewed a one-of-a-kind portrait of herself, painted by artist Stuart Brown.
The artwork was commissioned by the RAF, honouring the Queen – Air Commodore in Chief of the RAF Regiment – to celebrate its 75th anniversary.
The intricate portrait shows the Queen dressed in a periwinkle blue dress with a pearl necklace and a brooch, seating crossed legged.
The painting also shows the Astral Crown and crossed Lee Enfield rifles in the background.
