The principal portrait (at the left) is a contemporary image of Her Majesty; adapted from a photograph taken at Epsom Racecourse in 2008. The second portrait (from the left) is an official palace photograph of the Queen taken in the 1940s; adapted from a Dorothy Wilding photograph. The third image depicts The Queen with her family at Balmoral Castle and the fourth image is of the Queen with the Duke of Edinburgh and HRH Princess Anne attending the traditional service for the Order of the Thistle.
