The portrait looks as though it was taken at the Queen's Scottish residence, Balmoral, during her summer break.

The same blue sofa features in a 2018 photograph of the monarch and her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, surrounded by seven of their great-grandchildren.

Last October, Mike revealed on his podcast, The Good, The Bad & Rugby, that he and Zara had taken their children to see the Queen at her Balmoral estate.

"We went up to Scotland, so we've had a good family vacay through August, which was quite nice with the kids," he said.

The Cambridges and the Wessexes were also among the royal family members to spend time in Scotland last summer, and the Queen is said to have enjoyed a picnic with some of her great-grandchildren at Glen Muick.

Since Prince Philip's passing in April 2021, Her Majesty has welcomed two more great-grandchildren – the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's second child, Lilibet, who arrived last June, and Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's daughter, Sienna, who was born last September.
