I am so touched. Look at the crowds.

I can't get enough of all these celebrations and photos coming up! Seriously!

I immensely enjoyed the new photographs taken by Leibovitz; My favourite is the pictures of Her Majesty with Anne. So natural, heartwarming and beautiful. I also like the picture withthe children. Mia stealing the queen's handbag is so hilarious! And finally HM has a toddler in her arms.

I must say that I wans't a fan of the generational photo as it seemed oto much photoshopped. That pic must be a bit old though, and I think they were taken when the photos og George with a nnewborn Charlotte were released.

Are you talking about the stamp photo or the one with all the kids? The stamp photo was done last summer. They needed time to make the stamps to release for her birthday. Plus they had to get all 4 heads to be able to be a stamp. That's why George is how he is.

Ops, my post wasn't enough apparently. Yes, I was taking about the stamp photo. So, an old articl (don't rembember if it was the DM) climing that George had been made standing on a pile of books for the pic was right. And many didn't believe it

Maybe at Christmas they will release a video of the photoshoot or maybe release it to celebrate Prince Philip's birthday.

Ah the thought of Prince Philip surrounded by five little ones all running around him.
That photo would be absolutely priceless

All 3 photos are terrific, Annie Leibovitz did a fantastic job.

I especially love how little Mia stole her great-granny's handbag- after all it wouldn't be a royal photo if HM's handbag wasn't included!!!

Very funny that when The Queen got ready to cut her cake today, she asked the baker "does it cut?" The Queen remembers how difficult it was to cut a cake a while ago. She was very happy when the knife went in with very little effort.

I agree Biri. I think a photo of the Queen and Phillip with their children and spouses, grandchildren and spouses and great grandchildren would be a fabulous picture. Maybe there is more to come later. (Fingers crossed)

Is there a link to the video of the festivities that can be viewed in the U.S.? I clicked on some of the links provided in this forum from BBC and got message it could only be viewed in UK.

I have a feeling we will get a picture tonight of the attendees. That's why the Wessex children were included with the great-grandchildren. They were too young for the dinner tonight so the Queen didn't want them left out.

I loved all the photos that were released for her birthday, but my favourite has to be the one of HM and her grandchildren/great-grandchildren. It's so sweet and has quite a vintage feel to me, because of the colours of the room and the clothes the children are wearing, which is nice. It was particularly adorable how Mia had HM's bag. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when that photo was taken!
