LONDON (AP) - Queen Elizabeth II is surrounded by young grandchildren and great-grandchildren in 90th birthday portraits by photographer Annie Leibovitz.

One of the images, released Thursday by Buckingham Palace, shows the queen with two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

The queen cradles Prince William’s 11-month-old daughter Princess Charlotte in her lap, while Mia Tindall - 2-year-old daughter of the queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall- stands clutching the monarch’s black handbag.

Another image shows the queen on the steps of Windsor Castle with four of her beloved dogs: corgis Willow and Holly and dorgis Vulcan and Candy.

A 2007 Leibovitz royal photo shoot caused a stir when a trailer for a BBC documentary suggested the queen had abruptly walked out. The BBC later said the footage had been misleadingly edited.
