The photos were taken by acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz, who also took the photos of the Royal Family back in April to celebrate The Queen tuning 90.

The photos have been featured in Vanity Fair, and show the 90-year-old monarch sat relaxed in intimate portraits.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Annie Leobovitz said: “The most moving, important thing about this shoot is that these were all her ideas.

“She wanted to be photographed with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh; her daughter, Anne, the Princess Royal; and her corgis.”

Sat besides The Queen are her famous corgis and dorgis: Holly, Willow, Vulcan and Candy.

This is not the first time The Queen has appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair.

Exactly nine years ago, she posed again. These photos were also taken by Annie Leibovitz.

The magazine has also featured other members of her family, including Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge. The late Diana, Princess of Wales also starred on the front page twice.

This is just one of a series of photos to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Others released last month sees her walking the dogs, as well as posing with her grand-children and great-grandchildren.
