The royal family has released a never-before-seen photo of Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II with seven of their great-grandchildren. The image was taken before the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie Harrison, who was born in 2019.
The image features Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, as well as Zara and Mike Tindall’s daughters, Mia and Lena Tindall, and Peter Phillips’ daughters, Savannah and Isla Phillips, whom he shares with his ex-wife Autumn Phillips.
The sweet snapshot was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge at Balmoral Castle back in 2018. Her Majesty was photographed holding Prince Louis. Meanwhile, the Duke of Edinburgh was sandwiched between his great-granddaughters Princess Charlotte and Isla, who sweetly cradled her baby cousin Lena.
The monarch currently has ten great-grandchildren. The Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh welcomed two new great-grandsons earlier this year. Princess Eugenie gave birth to her first child, son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, in February.
Less than two months later, Zara welcomed her baby boy Lucas Philip Tindall. The royal cousins both paid tribute to their grandfather Prince Philip with their respective sons’ middle names. Another great-grandchild is on the way for Her Majesty. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their second child, a girl, this summer.
