A new portrait featuring The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh has been released to mark the couple’s 70th wedding anniversary on Monday.
The stunning new photograph was taken by British photographer Matt Holyoak of Camera Press, an independent photo agency.
The portrait was taken a couple of weeks ago in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.
Her Majesty is wearing a cream day dress by Angela Kelly. This is a poignant choice of outfit, as the 91-year-old also worn the item in 2007 when she was celebrating her diamond wedding anniversary.
The Queen is also wearing the ‘Scarab’ brooch in yellow gold, carved ruby and diamond. The Andrew Grima designed jewellery was given as a personal gift from the Duke to The Queen in 1966.
Pictured behind the couple are framed pictures by Thomas Gainsborough depicting George III and Queen Charlotte, who were married for 57 years.
Matt Holyoak is seen as one of Britain’s leading portrait photographers. His work has been acquired by The National Portrait Gallery for their permanent collection and has been exhibited worldwide.
