Queen Elizabeth has kicked off the new decade by posing next to her three heirs in the throne room at Buckingham Palace. It is only the second official portrait of the Queen and the next three in line to the throne — Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George — to mark the start of the 2020s. The previous occasion was during ceremonies for the monarch’s 90th birthday in 2016.

The latest portrait was taken on the same day all four were photographed informally making a Christmas pudding together at the palace. The adult royals had so much fun watching Prince George make a stab at mixing and stirring contents in the pudding bowl.
