Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, her son, are featured together in a new portrait.

The new photograph of the Queen and Charles was released by the British Monarchy on Saturday. It was taken for her 90th birthday in earlier this year and wasn’t released until now.

The photo, taken by photographer Nick Knight, shows the monarch sitting on a gold chair wearing a blue dress. Charles, 68, in a tuxedo, is seen looking at his mother.

Knight said: “It was a great pleasure and an honour to photograph Her Majesty The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales at Windsor Castle,” according to The Telegraph. “I wanted to create a modern portrait that showed warmth and humanity as well as strength and tradition.”
