Such lovely images!
I don't know how new these pictures really are, but I certainly had never seen them before.

Some of my favourite pictures:
- Prince Edward playing in the snow
- Prince Edward, James Ogilvy and Sarah Linley holding adorable lion cubs
- The Queen, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward (and a corgi) watching TV
- Prince Charles gives a music lesson to his youngest brother Prince Edward
- The Queen, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward looking through family albums
- Prince Edward at the nursery school in Buckingham Palace alongside Sarah Armstrong-Jones

It would be rather nice wouldn't it, if the Queen were to bring Andrew Festing back to do another painting of her with her family when she hosts the luncheon for the foreign monarchs in May especially with the Japanese Imperial couple possibly attending.

Thank you for sharing Artemisia. I don't think I have ever seen any of those pictures. I like the fact that they seem like such a normal family in those pics. Very intimate and loving photos. What treat to see them. :)

You are welcome.
The pictures in LadyFinn's post are indeed lovely; it's always nice to see British royals in relaxed, unofficial atmosphere, rather then formal events and portraits.

Yes. I like to think of them as real people. I know that they are royal but they are also human just like all of us. We don't all have titles and we don't all have responsibilities like they do but I think they have emotions and feel like we do. I like seeing them as regular folk. :)

I love these pictures . I think my favorites are; the kids with the lion cubs, music lesson with Charles and Edward, and kids at the Buckingham Palace Nursery School.

Quite a number of these have been around for years e.g. Charles playing with Edward (was a still from the 1969 film about The Royal Family), the picture of the Queen with Andrew and Edward looking through the family album (a still from a Christmas message), pictures of the nursery school were also around in the late 1960s early 1970s (again I am sure it is a still from the 1969 film).

Even though the film itself hasn't been seen since about 1969/1970 the still have been around as there was also a book published and that book has many of these pictures in it. I have the book somewhere.

An exhibition called 'The Queen: Art & Image' has just opened in the National Portrait Gallery's exhibition in London, England. The exhibition, which opens to the public on May 17, 2012 and runs until October 21, 2012, features a wide-ranging display of images of The Queen from throughout her 60 year reign. Some of the images:
- Portrait of the Queen by Chris Levine titled 'Lightness of Being' (I really love this one)
- Artwork of Her Majesty by Andy Warhol
- Portrait of the Queen by Justin Mortimer
Gallery from Daylife
