More photos from Annie Leibovitz for Queen’s 90th

Photographer Annie Leibovitz took more photos of The Queen to celebrate her 90th birthday, which feature exclusively in new Vanity Fair cover of Her Majesty with her corgis.

The first of the two new photos is the next cover of the magazine. The Queen sits on a picnic blanketed-bench with her four remaining dogs, two corgis, and two dorgis.

As the background is pink roses, Her Majesty stands out in her blue cardigan, shirt and navy skirt combo. Three of the dogs sit at her feet – Willow (corgi), Vulcan and Candy (dorgis) – with Holly at her side; she pets the dog.

In the second of the images, Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh can be seen at Windsor Castle, relaxing in the living room.

They were taken back in March along with the other photos released for Her Majesty’s milestone birthday.

Prince Philip looks dapper, dressed slightly more formally. He wears grey trousers a tweed jacket and pink shirt with navy tie and smoking slippers. The Duke appears to have his arm around his wife.

The fire roars in the background, and the furnishings show a homely sitting room, with a view into the Quadrangle in the Upper Ward of the castle.

The couple will celebrate their 69th wedding anniversary in November.

A HISTORY OF WINDSOR CASTLE 

Leibovitz said of the images: “The most moving, important thing about this shoot is that these were all her ideas,” she said.

“[The Queen] wanted to be photographed with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh; her daughter, Anne, Princess Royal; and her corgis. I was told how relaxed she was at Windsor, and it was really true. You get the sense of how at peace she was with herself, and very much enthralled with her family.”
