Clarence House has released a historic photograph of The Queen with her eldest child by her side to mark the end of Her Majesty’s 90th birthday year.
The stunning image was taken by photographer Nick Knight at Windsor Castle earlier in the year and depicts The Queen sat beside the Prince of Wales who is standing above her.
This is one of many photographs of the monarch that has been released this year to celebrate the occasion of her 90th birthday.
In April, three photographs taken by American photographer Annie Leibovitz were released.
One of the three photographs shows the 90-year-old monarch posing for the camera with two of her grandchildren and her five great-grandchildren. Her Majesty is seated in the photo with Princess Charlotte sat on her lap surrounded by the other children.
Another of the photos shows The Queen sat with her daughter, Princess Anne, on a sofa as they both smile to the camera. The Princess Royal embraces her mother, as she places her arm around her back.
The third photograph shows The Queen posing for a portrait on a walk around the private grounds of Windsor Castle on steps at the rear of the East Terrace and East Garden, accompanied by her two corgis Willow and Holly and two dorgis Candy and Vulcan.
