The photo was published by the Royal Windsor Horse Show, a show the Queen has attended every year since 1943. It was taken by Henry Dallal, who had been commissioned to produce an official portrait of the Queen on her 90th birthday anniversary, underlines the British newspaper Daily Mail .
“I think she’s had enough of birthdays”
This publication comes a few days after the surprise visit to the Queen of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle . In an interview broadcast this Wednesday on the American channel NBC, the prince talks about his reunion with his grandmother and their privileged relationship. “She has a great sense of humor,” he explained, adding that this is his favorite quality in the sovereign.
“We have a very special relationship. We talk about things that she can’t talk to anyone else,” the prince assured.
“I think she’s had enough of birthdays,” he said. Prince Harry says above all to make sure that the queen “is protected and that she has the right people around her”.
