The Queen wishes Princess Anne happy birthday on Instagram as she shares sweet photo of them at Windsor Castle


THE Royal Family’s official Instagram account posted a sweet photo of The Queen and her daughter Princess Anne to celebrate her 69th birthday.

Taken by famed American photographer Annie Leibovitz, the mother and daughter are pictured sitting side-by-side on a sofa in the Drawing Room of Windsor Castle.

“Born on this day in 1950, Her Royal Highness is the second child of Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh. #HappyBirthdayHRH”

Taking to the comments to gush about the sweet photo, royal fans praised Annie – who has taken portraits of A-listers such as Miley Cyrus and Angelina Jolie over the course of her career – for capturing their close relationship.

One replied: “One of the best natural royal photos I’ve ever seen.”

The official Instagram account for Clarence House has also shared a sweet photo of Prince Charles sharing a laugh with his younger sister to mark the day.

However, Kate Middleton and Prince William’s active Kensington Palace account – which normally shares a photo of a member of the Royal Family – has yet to post anything.

In recent months, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have preferred to comment on birthday posts shared by other Royal Family members rather than post one of their own.

Last month, royal trolls accused the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of having “no respect” for Prince George after they failed to use his royal title in their message wishing him “lots of love” on his sixth birthday.

In more Royal Family news, The Queen HASN’T honoured Meghan Markle with the RAF appointment Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker Bowles hold.

And “eco-warrior” Prince Harry has been slammed for flying Meghan Markle to Ibiza in a private jet with a massive carbon footprint.

Plus Meghan Markle posed a with Kate Middleton magazine cover two years BEFORE she met Prince Harry in an unearthed photo.
