When Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 on Thursday, April 21, 2016, and the Royal Family marked the occasion with a series of photos taken by photographer Annie Leibovitz.
Set at the Windsor Castle just after Easter, the most precious of the pictures is one with her youngest grandchild and all of her great-grand children.
Other pictures include one of the queen and her daughter Anne, Princess Royal, and one of her walking on the castle ground with her beloved corgi dogs.
The day before, the Royal Family released a picture of the full line of royal succession, with cute Prince George standing on a stool looking as precious as ever.
There was much celebrating in London.
Elizabeth was due to celebrate her birthday with a walkabout in Windsor, meeting well-wishers. In London, there were due to be artillery gun salutes at Hyde Park and the Tower of London and parliament was to be lit up red, white and blue.
