In a year filled with portraits, this is one for the history books. The Queen and her heir, the Prince of Wales, in an image to mark her 90th birthday. The photo, taken by Nick Knight, crowns a year of events for a special birthday, marked with family and celebrated across the world. Millions have taken part in festivities to mark the 90th birthday of Elizabeth II and we have many images from those events. But this photo has all the air of majesty and all the weight of history on it. The Queen, with her rock solid throne, and the prince who has stood at her side throughout her reign preparing to one day continue her work. Mother and son, monarch and heir. Charles, with the Queen at 90.
