It includes two of her grandchildren: James, the Earl of Wessex and Lady Louise, as well as some of her great-grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Mia, Lena and Lucas Tindall and Savannah and Isla Phillips.

On the top row of the picture at the back are Lady Louise and James, the daughter and son of Prince Edward and Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, and the Queen’s youngest grandchildren.

Next in the middle row going left to right are Lena Tindall, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Isla Phillips and Prince Louis.

Finally at the bottom from left to right are Mia Tindall holding her little brother Lucas Tindall on her lap and Savannah Phillips.

Mia, Lena and Lucas are the children of Zara and Mike Tindall, while Savannah and Isla Phillips are the daughters of Peter Phillips and his ex-wife Autumn Kelly.

Kate has long had a passion for photography and regularly shares portraits of members of the family, especially her three children, Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven and Prince Louis, who will turn five on Sunday.

Back in 2018, the Princess of Wales shot an adorable picture of the late Queen with her husband Prince Philip and seven of their great-grandchildren.

The picture was not released until 2021, shortly after the Duke of Edinburgh passed away at the age of 99.

In the intimate family snap, taken at Balmoral, the Queen and Prince Philip are pictured sitting on the sofa with Prince George standing on one side and Mia on the other.

The Queen is cradling baby Louis on her lap, while his big sister Charlotte strikes a sitting pose between her great-grandparents, with her cousin Savannah standing smartly behind the sofa.

Sitting beside Philip is Isla holding up baby Lena, with last year’s picture demonstrating how grown up the young family has become.

Speaking in a commentary for the BBC documentary Elizabeth: The Unseen Queen, which was first shown in May 2022 and featured never-before-seen home movies of the royals, Her Majesty shared her joys at having such a large family.

She said: “One of the joys of living a long life is watching one’s children, then grandchildren.

“We can’t be certain what lies ahead for them, but we should know enough to put them on the right path. We can do this if we have the good sense to learn from the experience of those who have gone before us.

“In my experience, the positive value of a happy family is one of the factors of human existence that has not changed… Faith, family and friendship have not only been a constant for me, but a source of personal comfort and reassurance.”
