The Queen Stuns Royal Fans With Candid New Photograph

The Queen Stuns Royal Fans With Candid New Photograph

The Queen received a particularly poignant gift in honour of her late husband's 100th birthday on 10 June. On Thursday, Buckingham Palace released an image showing the monarch being presented with a newly-bred rose by the Royal Horticultural Society last week, which has been named in honour of Prince Philip.

The candid photo shows the Queen smiling as she looks at the Duke of Edinburgh rose, which is deep pink, dappled with white lines and double-flowered. 

And while royal fans were quick to commend the sweet gesture and send their good wishes to HRH, a large number admitted they were shocked by her appearance in the picture.

The smiling Queen can be seen wearing a blue and white floral summer dress, a cardigan, and tinted glasses to protect her eyes from the sun. One follower noted: "What a lovely photo of our Queen looking like a normal grandmother with her cardigan on, being given a gift to commemorate her dear husband's birthday."
