Princess Charlotte, the 11-month-old daughter of Their Royal Highnesses the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, was featured sitting on the lap of her paternal grandmother, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, in an adorable family portrait of the monarch with the youngest members of the British royal family that was released on Wednesday -- the day before she celebrates her 90th birthday. People reports that the portrait was taken by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz on March 28.
Annie Leibovitz's portrait includes the queen's youngest grandchildren, Prince Edward's children Lady Louise, 12, and James, Viscount Severn, 8. The rest of the children in the portrait, including Princess Charlotte, are the queen's great-grandchildren: Princess Charlotte's older brother, 2-year-old Prince George, and Princess Anne's three grandchildren, Savannah Phillips, 5; Isla Phillips, 4; and Mia Tindall, 2. The Phillips girls are the daughters of Princess Anne's son Peter Phillips, and Mia Tindall is the daughter of Princess Anne's daughter Zara Tindall, who is married to retired rugby player Mike Tindall.
Princess Charlotte, who now has dark hair like her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge (formerly Kate Middleton), is holding a small toy horse in the photo. Mia Tindall is holding the queen's handbag, which she picked up without having been asked to do so, according to an anonymous source who spoke to People.
