Photos: Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 in the UK


Just moments ago, Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 in the U.K., and to celebrate, The British Monarchy has released a series of portraits photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

Today Queen Elizabeth becomes the longest ruling monarch.

In the first, she poses with her two youngest grandchildren and her five great-grandchildren. Holding 11-month-old Princess Charlotte on her lap, the queen sits alongside (from left) 8-year-old James, Viscount Severn, and 12-year-old Lady Louise, The Earl and Countess of Wessex’s children; Zara and Mike Tindall’s 2-year-old daughter Mia; 5-year-old Savannah and 4-year-old Isla, Peter and Autumn Phillips’s daughters; and, of course, 2-year-old Prince by.

In the second image, Queen Elizabeth poses with her beloved corgis and dorgies — Willow, Vulcan, Candy and Holly — on the steps of the East Terrace at Windsor Castle.

The final image features the queen seated alongside her only daughter, Princess Anne.

We’re celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s 90th Birthday with some pretty cool throwback photos.
