It’s Gan-Gan Queen Elizabeth and her gang of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The British monarch celebrates her 90th birthday with photos with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and the rest of the youngest royals.

In the new portrait, released on Wednesday and shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the Queen is joined by the littlest royal children. The photo was taken in the Green Drawing Room of Windsor Castle on March 28.

Sitting while sporting her biggest smile on the Queen’s lap is Princess Charlotte, who will turn 2 years old in a few days. Her brother, 2-year-old Prince George, stands next to them, wearing his trademark Amaia knee socks. Charlotte and George are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children.

On George’s left is his cousin, 3-year-old Isla Phillips, who is wearing pink cardigan and skirt. The smiling girl in light blue cardigan, just behind George, is 5-year-old Savannah Phillips. Isla and Savannah are the children of the Queen’s eldest grandson Peter Phillips and wife Autumn. Peter is the son of Princess Anne and her first husband Mark Phillips.

The tallest girl in dark blue is Lady Louise Windsor, 12, the Queen’s granddaughter from son Prince Edward and wife Sophie, the Earl and Countess of Wessex. On Lady Louise’s right is her brother, 8-year-old James, Viscount Severn.

The adorable little girl holding the Queen’s handbag is Mia Tindall, 2, the daughter of Zara Tindall and husband Mike Tindall. Zara is the Queen’s granddaughter from Princess Anne and Mark Phillips.

The Queen also posed for photographs with her only daughter, Anne, the Princess Royal, as well as with her beloved dogs: Willow (corgi), Vulcan (dorgie), Candy (dorgie) and Holly (corgi).

Earlier this week, the Royal Mail released a new stamp portrait of four generations of UK royalty with the Queen, the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles; the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William; and George. The photo is George’s first appearance on a stamp and was shot by Ranald Mackechnie.
