Mia Tindall steals the show in Queen Elizabeth's birthday portrait

When it comes to scene stealing, Prince George has some serious competition from his second cousin Mia Tindall. The internet went into meltdown about the two-year-old little girl after a commemorative portrait was released of Queen Elizabeth and her great-grandchildren.


In the photo, taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the young royal flashes an angelic smile as she holds on tightly to her great-grandmother's handbag. Surrounded by her cousins and second cousins, Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall's daughter wore a pink pastel cardigan, blue skirt and white frilly socks for the photograph.

Following the release of the lovely family portrait, royal fans took to Twitter to discuss the adorable young royal, who is the 17th-in-line to the throne.

One user known as Annette Hardy declared, “Great Leibovitz photos. Mia Tindall holding her great granny's handbag will melt the coldest of hearts. #Queenat90.”


Another user suggested that Mia outshone her very popular relative Prince George. “Move over George, this photo is all about Mia Tindall,” wrote a user named @armywagblog.
