A photo of Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip sitting with their great-grandchildren has been released as the British royal family shared memories of Philip.

The previously unseen image shows the couple like any other great-grandparents surrounded by youngsters on a sofa during a family get-together and with the little ones appearing on best behaviour.

Kate Middleton captured the moment on her camera in 2018 when the Queen and Philip’s seven great-grandchildren were at Balmoral.

Cradled in the arms of the Queen is Prince Louis, a rare image of the British monarch holding one of her great-grandchildren.


The full line-up of royal children includes Prince William and Kate’s children Prince George and Princess Charlotte either side of the Queen who holds their brother Louis.

Peter Phillip’s daughters Savannah and Isla are close to their great-grandfather and at the other end of the sofa are Zara and Mike Tindall’s children Lena, held by her cousin Isla, and his daughter Mia.

A love of polo is featured in a black and white picture of Prince Philip with his son Charles with both men sitting on polo ponies with mallets and helmets in hand pictured during a match.

The image was posted on Charles and Camilla’s official Twitter account alongside a more modern image of Philip alongside his son and Camilla in the moments after William and Kate’s Westminster Abbey wedding.

William and Kate also shared memories of Philip and the Queen, posting an image taken at Balmoral in 2015 on their official Twitter account showing the couple with their children George and Charlotte.

The Queen smiles at her great-granddaughter in the image which has not been seen before in public.
