Portrait of Queen and three heirs marks the start of a new decade

A portrait of the Queen with the next three heirs to the throne has been released to mark the start of the new decade.

It shows the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince George standing with the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

The new photograph was taken in the week before Christmas, but has not been published until now.

It is the second official portrait of the four generations of royals together.

The Queen, 93, standing at the front of her family, wears a white dress with a blue brooch and clutches a handbag.

The photograph was taken by Ranald Mackechnie, who was also responsible for the only other portrait of the four royals together.
