Королевское юбилейное фото


Family: Perched proudly on a pile of foam blocks, but holding daddy's hand just in case, Prince George poses for his very first postage stamp alongside his father, his grandfather – and the great-grandmother whose face has appeared on more stamps than anyone in history

Наша королева Елизавета II сфотографировалась с принцами Чарльзом, Уильямом и Джорджем для семейного портрета. Как сообщает Daily Mail, снимок был сделан в честь юбилея Ее Величества (21 апреля монарху исполнится 90 лет). Фото появится на британских марках.

Принц Джордж позировал для почтовой марки впервые, тогда как портреты Елизаветы II появлялись на почтовых марках чаще, чем чьи-либо еще изображения, отмечает газета.

Фотография была сделана в Букингемском дворце несколько месяцев назад. Автор снимка – фотограф Royal Mail Рэнальд Маккекни.

Набор из четырех марок с портретами Елизаветы II, Чарльза, Уильяма и Джорджа стоит £2,56.

She's Queen of the castle... and he's her cheeky rascal! Adorable Prince George is given a step up as he beams proudly next to his 'Gan-Gan' in magical family portrait to mark her 90th birthday

Perched proudly on a pile of foam blocks, but holding Daddy's hand just in case, Prince George poses for his very first postage stamp alongside his father, his grandfather – and the great-grandmother whose face has appeared on more stamps than anyone in history. Ahead of the Queen's 90th birthday tomorrow, the Royal Mail has released this historic image. It is the scene on a new sheet of four commemorative First Class stamps.

Much more than that, this is also a photograph which will be remembered long after this week's celebrations.

For this is the future. Here are monarchs 41, 42 and 43 (post-Norman Conquest) saluting Number 40.

If monarchy stands for anything, it is continuity and stability. And this superb image, captured in the White Drawing Room of Buckingham Palace by Royal Mail photographer Ranald Mackechnie a few months ago, reinforces that.

Think of it this way. When Prince George is celebrating his own 90th birthday, it will be the year 2103.
