Prince George Shines in New Portrait With Queen Elizabeth, Prince William and Prince Charles
The queen and her heirs!
A stunning new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and the next three heirs in line to the British royal throne has been released.
The image was taken by photographer Ranald Mackechnie in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace on Dec. 18 and features Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George. Prince George looks adorable as always, wearing plaid pants and a white shirt tucked in, while his grandfather, Prince Charles, lovingly places a hand on his shoulder. Meanwhile, Prince William smiles big behind his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
The image was released to mark the start of a new decade, according to the official Palace press release. This is the second time the foursome has been featured in an official portrait. The first was in 2016 to mark Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday. That image was also taken by Mackechnie.

Prince George, 6, has been more involved in the royal family as he's grown. This past Christmas, the adorable son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, attended the Christmas Day service at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene on the queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
